It has been a while since we posted an update. We have been busy with Derek's Baseball season, work, and life in general. I just got back from training at Fort Hood, and Dave is now attending First Sergeant's Academy. He is so excited to be getting this opportunity. I am so proud of him and know he will be an amazing First Sergeant.
He has three weeks of some intense training, so I will pray for him that he soaks it all in and has a great experience at school. If you think of him when you send up your prayers - I would be sooooo appreciative!
If you are wondering just what a First Sergeant does, here is a great article:
I know Dave will embrace this new position with the same enthusiasm and sense of duty that he does in his love of Christ.
"Be shepherds of God's flock, the believers who are under your care. Serve as their leaders. Don't serve them because you have to. Instead, do it because you want to. That's what God wants you to do. Don't do it because you want to get more and more money. Do it because you really want to serve." 1 Peter 5:2 (NIRV)
He truly does want to serve the airmen in his care. His heart and mind are in this for all the right reasons, and I am so proud to be supporting him on this new path in his career... I'll be sure to keep you updated on how he is doing.
