Circle of Trust:

Name-A-Rama, Announcements: 3rd F events set for January and February let Sarge know if you are interested.  Freed To Lead discussion group planned for Wednesday nights at 8:30pm. Let Beefsteak know if you want to participate. Chapter 1 Discussion on 1/13 via zoom. Prayer Requests: For Sarge’s family member battling COVID-19, For Ace’s brother-in-law whose mom passed away and their entire family. 

Moleskin: the mumblechatter was low today, with the PAX focused on the long plank holds and counting parking space lines. We managed to chat about how warm it felt outside, a good convergence had on 1/1, and the New Years festivities at home where many PAX reported they were asleep and warm in the fart sack by 10:30pm!  Great to enjoy the beatdown with these men. 

– Ace
