Ambassador has become an AO that is now frequented by PAX from Healing Transitions (The Healing Place). Thank you Zima for picking the four HT PAX up today, and Thank You Peach Pit for taking care of getting them back. The Blessings go both ways BIG TIME with our HT PAX/Friends. Country Wide (CW/DW) said there is a Taxi List being made up for everyone to be able to sign up and Taxi our HT PAX to Ambassador….be on the lookout for this.
We started Mary with 7 PAX, CW/DW arrived a little late which made 8, Mary consisted of the following:
- 25 SSH
- 15 Good Mornings
- 10 Sir Nigel Octavius Fazio Arm Circles (forward), then 20 backwards)
- 10 Merkins
- 20 Mtn Climbers
We then picked up another 5 when Zima arrived in his Clown Car from HT with his 4 HT PAX to bring our total to 13, as we fellowship ran over to the track for the main event. We circled up and YHC produced a pack of 52 Playing Cards. Each suit was assigned an exercise, with the four exercises being…Merkins, Burpees, Star Jumps and Freddie Mercuries. Number of reps were the card number with Face Cards having a 10 count (Thank you Sir Villa for introducing this exercise to the PAX). The PAX tried to have Aces count as one when the very first card was a Face Card in the Burpee suit, but YHC held firm on the 10 count. The kicker here was each PAX had to call complete cadence from start to finish with no errors; or, we ran to other side of track and back. We ended up running 19-20 times, but by the end everyone had improved significantly on their cadence.
Half-way through CW/DW EH’d a young man who was running laps around the track and shadow boxing to join us….and he did for the rest Ambassador.
We finished well, with much Mumble Chatter. Was great to see much of the Mumble Chatter coming from our HT PAX. We did a fellowship run to a shaded spot near the parking lot for Mary which consisted of:
- American Hammer
- 6″ Leg Holds around the Horn with each PAX giving a 6 count.
COT had us give our FNG the name “Gamboa”, which is a Hispanic Boxer. Gamboa is 17 years old and plans to join the Marines when he graduates High School. Keep a lookout for him at future F3 sites and speak to him if he comes.
Prayer Requests and the below devotion YHC read, then Steroid took us out in fine fashion.
Thanx all the PAX who attended. Lets here from others who can help get our HT PAX to this Saturday F3 site.
Get thee up into the high mountain.Isaiah 40:9
Our knowledge of Christ is somewhat like climbing one of our Welsh mountains. When you are at the base you see but little: the mountain itself appears to be but one-half as high as it really is. Confined in a little valley, you discover scarcely anything but the rippling brooks as they descend into the stream at the foot of the mountain. Climb the first rising knoll, and the valley lengthens and widens beneath your feet. Go higher, and you see the country for four or five miles round, and you are delighted with the widening prospect. Mount still, and the scene enlarges; till at last, when you are on the summit, and look east, west, north, and south, you see almost all England lying before you. Yonder is a forest in some distant county, perhaps two hundred miles away, and here the sea, and there a shining river and the smoking chimneys of a manufacturing town, or the masts of the ships in a busy port. All these things please and delight you, and you say, I could not have imagined that so much could be seen at this elevation. Now, the Christian life is of the same order. When we first believe in Christ we see but little of him. The higher we climb the more we discover of his beauties. But who has ever gained the summit? Who has known all the heights and depths of the love of Christ which passes knowledge? Paul, when grown old, sitting grey-haired, shivering in a dungeon in Rome, could say with greater emphasis than we can, I know whom I have believed, for each experience had been like the climbing of a hill, each trial had been like ascending another summit, and his death seemed like gaining the top of the mountain, from which he could see the whole of the faithfulness and the love of him to whom he had committed his soul. Get thee up, dear friend, into the high mountain.
