Goals, scary stories, and well…fire farts with boys

by | Aug 15, 2014 | Uncategorized | 10 comments

I sit here next to the fire as the guys settle the boys down for our first night. Tonight we spoke about goals. Great conversations about listening, staying out of trouble, playing less video games, being more social. A great first night of goals conversation! We then tested out the awesome new glow in the dark bibles!!! Thank you again to the VanDyke foundation!!! The boys are smiles and bonding.
However this is not without struggle. A handful of reminders and redirects have been passed around. Please keep our boys in prayers as satan will challenge them tomorrow during team building and coops.
But the power of Christ prevails as the bible has already been opened and verses recited as to what each one remembers
Ephesians 2:8-9
John 1:5
John 3:16!!!

That’s what it’s all about!!! Praise God

    This is for all of the young men
    I will be praying for all of you. I know the only thing that got me through eagle tower at FT Benning and the rest of it was GOD. I was very scared and nervous but god got me through the best 15 weeks of my life. God bless everyone of you.
