An Awesome Friday



On Friday, November 2, 2007 was an extra-ordinary day for me. Two significant events took place.


First, I had the honor to meet, see, and take a photo with the President of the United States. He had stopped in at the chaplain school to encourage the leaders and students. I was blessed to hear from his heart and see the humanity and the depth of his character. (http://www.jackson.army.mil/PAO/WEB%20UPDATES/Bush%20visit/images/index.html) I am standing behind the right shoulder of the President. We had the opportunity to pray with the President, at his request. Pretty amazing!

The second event was that I passed my Army Physical Fitness Test. I did my run time at 15:25 (2 miles), and 50 push-ups, and 50 sit-ups. In addition, I lost nine more pounds, my waist is at 37 inches, and my body fat percentage is 22% (it has to be under 24%).

Well, 5 more weeks, then graduation. Hooah!

Hi Angel,

It is so good to see how you are progressing. I am just now catching up on your blog. How exciting to meet the pres! I would have loved to be in the room when you all were praying for him.

I hope Nicole and the girls are doing well. You are in our prayers.

Love,
Aunt Sandy

Brother, that is indeed awesome!! I'll bet we would not even recognize you. Navy Chaplain School is getting ever closer (Jan 7) and we found out that we are being stationed with the USMC at Twentynine Palms, CA after graduation. We are excited. Hope your wife and kids are well. God Bless and have a great Thanksgiving!
