Out of This World…

Jonesborough Immortal Station (Jonesborough) Northeast Tennessee

11 PAX came out in 66 degree humid gloom to enjoy an Out of This World beatdown. The intent was to spell out ROSWELL UFO with 3 exercises for each letter (7/7/47). However, we didn’t get through it all. We were able to get in ROSWELL U…

      • The burpee’s discount store brother, where the fun gets rolled back. Drop down to a squat like a normal burpee, but go all the way to your six and roll back to your shoulder blades.

Paul told the church in Ephesus that they used to be strangers and aliens until they became part of the church (Eph. 2:19). In a similar fashion, we were outsiders until we joined F3. F3 gives us the ability to have relationships and support from other men when oftentimes we would avoid tough conversations. We need each other to grow and improve.
