When do you prepare for battle? I have heard it said that you are either heading into a storm, in a storm, or coming out of a storm. In a particularly difficult season of life, YHC received the following advice from a pastor – “you don’t prepare for the war when the war is happening. you prepare for war during peace time”. These reps we do matter. We will need the strength and growth we are experiencing sometime, make this time count.

Annoucements- Murph/nasty beatdown convergence planned for Memorial Day- more to come.

Prayers offered.

Always an honor to lead you men. Love you guys.

Gravy out!!
