DJ-Q: YHC provided some background, patriot music (or some good old American rock and roll) in an attempt to further motivate the PAX.

Mary: YHC was the last to return to the flag. All I saw was boat/canoe. Time.


  • F3LM Christmas party info given. HC to See Alice or Uncle Rico
  • Small home improvement project lead by Rafter/See Saw in Newberry next Saturday, 11/18 after bootcamp. Need HC’s, just a few items that need attention. Rafter will provide more details through the week, but this will help a single mom with multiple 2.0s that are struggling and have faced many recent hardships and tragedies. Work should be complete before lunch.
  • Speedtrap needs a Q for Tuesday, 11/14

Prayer requests:

  • Praise for Creole’s healing and bringing him back to bootcamp. Still mending, but improving.
  • Pray for Creole’s friend Daniel Bourbon who was in a car accident this morning. First reports are that he’s fine, a little bruised.
