I hear that the pastor wants to stick the congregation members. I’m not sure he’s going to get any volunteers. I think my congregation here just decided that the IV would be less painful than one of my sermons!

Today we had fun with a vehicle rollover simulator. Rollovers are a significant cause of injuries and death. The simulator is like a ride at the fair. It is the cab from a Hummvee that has been mounted on a machine that spins it on an axis that runs horizontally through the middle. They flip you over, then you have to undo the seat belts and open the locks (they’re not normal door locks), then crawl out. After that, you repeat the exercise in the dark.

We had fun, but it’s another thing that you hope you don’t have to do in real life.

I’ll be gone for a couple of days with no access to the internet. So, there will be no new posts for a few days.

Blessings… Randy

  1. Dear Randy,
    Hey there. I read your blog every weekend. Glad to see you arrived safely. We pray for you all, everyday, and so many of our friends who are also deployed. Todays sermon was in Romans 8:26-39. Nice input on predestination… keeping in mind the entire passage is about reassurance of salvation. We get a new chaplain from Iceland next week, horrah! Poor Craig has had a rough year, mostly avoiding the pew.
    We will be keeping in touch with Sheri. Glad to see your church is so supportive. We do love you.
    Carol (and Craig)

  2. That simulator action must be like the “mechanical bull” I saw in Urban Cowboy. When you get settled in, let us know what we can do to make you and your fellow soldiers less stressful. Drink more water!!! God Bless
