Ben had testing today for Bushido Kai Karate and passed up to his orange belt! YEAH, BEN!!!!!!

He had to work really hard to pass this belt, memorizing ka-da's, moves, stances, blocks, sparring well. We are very proud of him for the determination and effort he puts into karate and see him growing spiritually, emotionally, physically from his karate lessons.

Sensa Nell really stresses the Biblical aspects of reliance on God
in all of life; and being strong in HIM.
Memorizing Bible verses is part of the testing as well!

Romans 8: 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

(Once he gets his belt we will post another picture, but the belts are special made!!!)

Phil 4:13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.

Psalm144:1 Praise be to the LORD my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.
