Wild Kingdom Backblast: Zoo Field Trip Day July 9th, 2019 | Zorinsky Lake Playground | AO – Wild Kingdom | 73° and Pouring Rain 

6 PAX: CSI, Tonight Show, Hard Hat, Blue Suede, Crab Cakes, FDIC 


The Pre-Blast gave the PAX an idea of what they would be experiencing, and that experience included coupons. FDIC heard the rain and felt it’s ominous entry to the AO during setup and knew that modification from the original battle plan would be needed. FDIC remembered reading that a good Q would be able to keep calm, assess the situation, and adjust as necessary. That nugget would be put into practice today. 

5:30 was approaching and the already soaked to the bone Tonight Show and Hard Hat approached the shovel flags from their pre-run. The rest of the PAX exited their dry vehicles and gathered around for the 5:30 rally cry. FDIC welcomed 5 PAX to a warm and rainy morning of internal joy. Explained the mission of F3 and reminded PAX that FDIC is not a professional and to modify as needed, especially in the wet conditions with the coupons. FDIC led the PAX deeper into the rain with a mosey to the parking lot near the restrooms for the Warm-O-Rama

Circle Of Trust Count Off/Name O Rama Reflection (below) Announcements/Prayer Requests 

– The Pit – F3 location in Papillion – Sat July 20th FDIC ended in Prayer 

Reflection 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, 13 – Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love. 

FDIC recounted that in the midst of a culture that says ‘follow and do whatever your feelings and emotions tell you’ to remind the PAX that love is not an emotion, it’s an action. Everyday we have people, situations, events, outcomes that we encounter, and instead of acting on our initial reaction or feeling, to take a step back, reflect if it is love, step back into the reaction, and move forward. 

Aye! FDIC
