“Welcome to the jungle, watch it bring you to your knees, knees… I wanna watch you bleed…” (Sorry for the cheesy G&R reference but I loved that song in college.)

19 PAX were struck with the chill of the first true fall morning and entered the jungle for what the Q hoped would be a beat down. However, I don’t believe anyone was brought to his knees and no one shed any blood as the song might lead you to believe.

At 5:00 this morning Orwell emails his verse of the day, which I had just read as we subscribe to the same daily devotional. He and I both agree that this verse sums up what the Third F means to us. Philippians 2:3-4 “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interest of the others”.

Prayer requests were made this morning for Tater Tot’s safe travel and productive work in Philly, Bull’s eye (Orwell’s son) has a concussion from a football game, as does Sam Caviness, and Caddie knows a family with a premature daughter weighing 1.5 lbs…. Lord lift these and all other requests up and embrace them with your healing power.
