COUNT-O-RAMA

NAME-O-RAMA

+We imparted the name Big Worm to our 1 FNG…Big Worm is currently on the road traveling to Arizona where he is starting a new job with the Air Force. We encouraged him to find / start an F3 out there…

 

MOLESKIN

The shovel flag reminds us that as men, we have been given a God-given mandate to work…to move earth. We are called to live in such a way that things (such as our wives, family, church, community, friendships, etc) flourish…We do this by putting aside passivity and by following Jesus in being sacrificial servant leaders…

To summarize what I have learned through walking with Jesus and through F3, it’s this: Men, get your Sh!t together and get you A$$ to work.

I don’t typically use language as this, but sometimes as men, we need to be told exactly how it is.
