Well, the beginning of week two starts tomorrow; Sunday the 7th. We have been cleared medically, issued our battle gear, and have taken our physical fitness diagnostic. Now the fun begins.
I will be attending services of 3 faith groups tomorrow. We are responsible for attending 9 services outside of our individual preference this summer. I am going to try to knock them out early so when my weekend pass comes around I will get to go. Of course, I really don't have any place to go, but if I did I could...
I am pleased to report my mile time was 5:43 (no, that is not 5 hours and 43 minutes). My goal was 7 minutes. The time doesn't count for anything because we get graded on a two mile run, but it did make me feel good. Well, kinda. I actually didn't feel very good at all when I first finished the run.
We will be pushed pretty hard this upcoming week. God has taken me through a lot. He will continue to provide the strength for this. I will let you know later how many times He had to help through the push-ups my sergeant makes me do.
As you follow the blog, please feel free to ask questions. I will try to answer them in my updates. Also, as you read, please pray for my wonderful family at home. They were unable to accompany me on this vacation.
Joking aside...God is my first love; they are my second. May the strong arm of the Lord wrap around my girls: mommy, Hannah, and Cali. May His sufficient grace drench them with Living Water.
Speaking of water, it is hot down here.
Because of Jesus,
