Brothers, YHC writes to you again from Papua New Guinea, proud to report we now boast a terrific PNG Shovel Flag and have been maintaining a solid three-member PAX (latest addition is “Cinco”, Dr Nathan Mason, father of five). Continuing the Tue/Thur/Sat bootcamps, this morning marked YHC’s 19th Q for F3PNG. It has been nice to start running some Triple Checks now that we’ve consistently had three men attending. While the headlock is steadily applied every day around Station, there seems to be an ongoing reluctance for most to escape the fartsack, or for those who have tasted the pain,…

YHC couldn’t choose just one title this morning, so you get three. 5 early risers posted at a new location (River Road Church – Baptist) at a new time (5am) to test out something different this morning in the gloom.

Guatemala Medical Mission Trip 2019 – After a long clinic day in a remote jungle village, then a harrowing 4×4 trek across flooding rivers (had to tow the van stuck mid-river on one of them), we finally arrived back at the hotel and Seadoo joined YHC to cool off in the pool before dinner. No sooner had we arrived but the heavens opened and we swam a few laps while thick cold rain pelted us from above and drowned out the mumble chatter. YHC suggested a little Dora action might be fun, and Seadoo readily agreed. No sooner had we…

Two PAX once again showed up to meet in the gloom before another day of our Leadership retreat with LMR. Word around the resort is that there was a Wedding Singer sighting. Knowing that this was his anniversary weekend we figured he had good reason not to join the PAX this morning. Congrats Wedding Singer to you and the M on your anniversary. A 4.1 mile run though Kingsmill is not a bad way to start the day. Lots of mumble chatter about our weekend at the retreat and the people we have met. We were both excited to hear…
