Tuesday, August 8, 2017 QIC: Uptown Girl
AO: Charles Frias Park, Las Vegas, NV Time: 05:45 – 6:30
What a glorious day in Paradise. Starting temperature and sunrise in Las Vegas was a cool 82 degrees no humidity. A lot of activity in the park when I arrived. Would you believe not one person was there because they heard from a friend or PAX about the workout. This is nothing new for YHC. So with all the activity; it was easy for me to speak to four guys prior to start; and get two hard commits.
Cowboy Wisdom: FREE is the most expensive word in Las Vegas or life for that matter.
This statement was contributed wisdom from FNG (E-Money) that was waiting for the sales pitch or hook; but never found it. He waited and waited, not attachment. Free Gift! Give to Give as Dark Helmet puts it.
In truth, If you don’t ask; you will not receive! (Matthew 7:7)
These guys didn’t need any help with mumble chatter. They were yelling out cadences, complaints, groans, like pros from beginning to end of workout. It was music to my ears.

Name-O-Rama: E-Money (Bengie) and Hila (Lol LW)
Prayers & Praises: We gave thanks for day and that God put these men in YHC path. It turns out Hila is a taxi driver so he gave me a ride back to the hotel. On our car ride he shared his wife and he have been trying for some time to get pregnant. Working with doctors. So I promised him we will be praying for his family. Hila has seen E-money a dozen times or more at the same park. They never spoke. Today change happened for these men.
