Rainbows & Blocks at SoCal

  • When: 07/17/17
  • QIC: Cropduster
  • The PAX: Udder Butter, Banjo, 2-Stroke, Castaway, Panda

Wow!  It rained like crazy in parts of the F3Hickory region Monday late afternoon.  I was not sure I was going to make it home from work in one piece – but I did.  Then about 7pm I headed back out to the Granite Falls # AO for our 8pm start time.  The rain had mostly stopped.  As I was running around the AO and going through the workout in my mind I saw a rainbow to the East.  From my vantage point it looked like it touched down exactly where we start our workout.  Must be a sign!

5 other PAX were waiting for The Cropduster when he rolled up to The Square in Granite Falls.

Naked Moleskin:  The cooler temps were a welcome relief after the storm – as was the beautiful rainbow.  Thank you God for that!  YHC really enjoys the SoCal workout – the mood just feels lighter for an evening workout.  Like UB said – “digestion is a problem” – true that!  The guys all worked hard, sweated a bit, bonded closer as friends and generally got better.  It was a good evening!

Count Off

Name-O-Rama (Come on Guys – Birth Name – F3Nickname – Age)!!!!

COT:  Cropduster read from Mark Chapter 8 where Jesus asked his disciples – “What about you, who do you say I am?”  Peter answered that Jesus was the Messiah.  We talked about this a bit then I challenged the PAX to imagine Jesus asking them this question over the course of the week.  How would they respond?  How would they live their life based on their answer?

Prayer Requests:

  • UB – just got back from a mission trip to Red Springs NC – he asked that the work they did there would yield fruit.
  • Castaway – their daughter is pregnant and he asked for prayers of guidance protection for the family
  • Banjo – has a good friend whose grandfather passed away.  His friend is going through a difficulty in his marriage as well.  In addition, his friend’s brother is atheist.
  • 2-Stroke – he has two families on his heart who are going through times of challenge

We prayed.

Cropduster out!
