What a night! It is always amazing to have Alumni come back and help out! Sam phoned me last week asking if he could lead the Bible study and of course I was excited to give him a chance! Sam went through Battalion and now he is teaching! This is what Battalion is about! Sam had us reading stories about Samson, Paul, Gideon and Samuel. In each of these stories we were supposed to see that God doesn't require the strongest men or the people with the best reputation to do his work. He just requires that we are willing to do his work.
1 Samuel 16:7 - But the Lord said to Samuel, "Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart."
Later Sam talked about rap and its place in our culture. He also talked about how we should pray for those in the rap industry as well as those around us. Sam reminded us that we are all the same and are in need of God's salvation!
Romans 3:23,24 - for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
It was Mike Night this week! We decided that we would play until one team made it to 50. The score was 49-46 for Joe and Chris's(The King)team. We had one final round were we threw out 9 balls and Charlie's team came up with 6 of them making the score 52-52! It was an amazing comeback! We needed to break the tie so we went one more round. It was Joe and Charles in the final round and Charles got a lucky bounce off of the strobe to take the victory!
If we had a play of the week at Battalion it would have to go to Zach this week. In Bulldog he knocked down three guys at the same time and then got up and took out one more guy and all in the same round! I have played a lot of Bulldog in my day but I don't think I have ever seen anyone take down three guys at the same time! It was amazing! He later took out Chris with one hand while laying on his back! Fortunately for Chris(The King)it didn't matter because he was still the last man standing! This win gives Chris his fifth Helmet of the year. Congrats Chris!
After Bulldog we had a little time left so we played Fire Fever Flood, a throwback to Stockade. While playing Charles some how managed punch or kick(Not sure what happened.)Joe in the face giving him a bleeding nose.(This is the contact in a non-contact sport thing, check out the Top Ten if you don't know what I am talking about.)(Insert the Welcome back Joe...I mean Kotter theme song here.) Anyways Charlie managed to beat Zach in the final round to win F.F.F. finishing another great night at Battalion!
