Over to the wall for 2 sets of 1 minute wall sit.

Headed back to the flag with a good ole fashioned Indian run!


Looking for more guys to step up and fill Q spots and for all of us to work on becoming better leaders in 2019! Remember that leaders are those that influence the thinking, behavior, or development of another person. Leadership is not  just reserved for those that have a certain position in a corporate structure. Great book titled, “Lead Like Jesus” who is the greatest leader of all time! He was a servant leader and that is something we all should strive to be. If serving is beneath you then leadership is beyond you.

Prayer request and praise:

Praise report for Captain Gab on returning home from the hospital and continued prayer for his recovery.

Have a Happy New Year fellas! Be safe
