Brennon’s TACP Poem from Sere

Brennon shared his poem and I just had to write it down.  I thought he did an amazing job!

Last Day at BMT Graduation

Started our day at bible study then on to church.  It was an amazing service.  66 people dedicated their lives to Christ this week.  Wow!

Hung out at the rec center.  Great place to hang out.  Wish we found it earlier.

Amazing emotional weekend.  So proud of Brennon.  Sad to be leaving him.  Can’t wait to see him soon at tech school graduation.
