Learning about Teamwork and facing Fear

5 men and 10 boys from the Bull Dogs Matters program spent another day at the USNWC (what a blessing we have for such a wonderful facility to be in our city).   Although it rained for the first half, our prayers were answered and God gave us a break in the afternoon.

Here’s what we did:

  • Zip lines and ropes courses
  • Rafting ( Rafting at USNWC )
  • Climbing wall over the pool
  • Biking (Chicken Coop and 2 boys)

Most of the boys had never been rafting so it was a new experience.    Several were nervous but were strong enough to see thru their fear and join us    Rafting without knowing how to swim can be intimidating.     General Patton went over-board but stayed safe (although disappointed that he missed the Class 4 rapid on their last run).  Rafting is great for teaching teamwork as the raft goes faster when everyone works together.  The guides do a great job of organizing us and the boys at the front are given a chance to lead.

Days like this cover Fitness, Fellowship and Faith plus are 2.0 friendly (service hours in addition to seeing some #HIM’s in action).   We can always use more “coaches” as the need is tremendous.   Please contact me at pchepul@gmail.com or @pchepul on Twitter for more information.   Also, for financial support, please send donations to the F3 Foundation and mark it as support for Bull Dogs Matters.  AYE
