COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
23 HIMs met in the gloom to kick off the week at JUCO. We had two more FNGs today. Welcome Kevin Hanson (Sergeant Slaughter) and Woody Huguley (Bambi)!
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Even Jesus, being perfect in every way, faced rejection multiple times throughout his time on Earth. His reaction was always to continue soldiering on in the work of the Lord. We will all face rejection at some point in our lives. How we react to that rejection is what matters. Be like Christ and use rejection as a teaching moment and continue doing God’s work.

MOLESKIN:

There must be something in the water here at JUCO as we have grown our numbers exponentially in the last month. Let’s keep this ball rolling! Keep inviting FNGs to come out and get better. Reach out to those HIMs who have been absent and encourage them.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
A JUCO shirt order should be posted in the GroupMe soon. Shirts are only ordered in bulk, so if you want one, get on it.

MOLESKIN:

This was my last Q before moving to Greenville, SC. F3 has meant so much to me, and I’m blessed to be a part of such a great AO and region. I’m looking forward to coming back and visiting when I’m in town to visit my in-laws.

Prayer requests for different family members and a friend going through a life crisis. Pray that God brings his comfort and peace and uses these situations to bring people to himself.

Focused on one leadership trait we can learn from Christ’s example: Integrity.  Maintain it. Leaders who lose it, lose the trust of those being led. Constantly study your heart and compare actions to God’s instruction and Christ’s example.  A great resource from pastor John Piper: desiringgod.org

The very best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second best time to plant a tree is today.  Take a moment today and reflect on something that you should have started already, big or small.  Saving for kid’s college, fixing a broken relationship, cleaning out the garage, developing a prayer life, etc.  Take the first step today.
MOLESKIN:
Two times up Jucomanjaro!!!!!!  Well done gentlemen.   Well done.
