We then played Card Roulette (Official F3 Deck) where each PAX chose a card that had a specific workout and a rep count. Faces were 20 reps and we added 10 Reps to all numbered cards (4 of Hearts = 14 reps). Mixed in, we had a 5 min interval alarm where everyone did 5 Body Bag Builders. Captain O cut the deck, sealing our fate.

7 PAX: Innuendo, Captain Obvious, Slots, Ike, Chuck E Cheese, Runner Up, Landline

What is a Deacon in the Christian Church? Deacon comes from the Greek word diakonos which literally translates to “Servant”. I was called to be a deacon at my church (Germantown Presbyterian) and have just completed 1 year out of 3. Serving others has changed my perspective on the numerous background activities no one sees, that it takes to keep a church running. Encouraged the PAX to stay humble and become a servant for God and for others and your soul will be greatly rewarded with happiness.

Runner Up’s parents Rob and Bridget (Doctor & Nurse) are traveling today to Uganda on a mission trip to serve at a refugee camp. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
