He will now be 'flagged.' He will have fewer privileges and will be doing remedial PT, so he will have less free time. He will not be going to the promotion board tomorrow.
He is very disappointed and apologized to me. I can clearly see that this is God's timetable and not ours. Its not like Brad completed his test and didn't pass, he had a cramp that he has never had before...and I don't doubt for a minute that there is a reason.
We appreciate your continued prayers. Brad will take another PT test in 3 weeks, and will then go to the promotion board next month. Please pray for him as he continues to study. These next three weeks will be long and challenging for Brad. For some reason, a high PT score is a big deal for a lot of the leadership over there. While Brad was here with us, he chose to spend his time here with us instead of at the gym. I will never wish he had done otherwise. I hope he will benefit physically during the extra PT and that his next test will be his best. But, more than that, I hope he (and I...and the rest of you for that matter) will clearly see and understand that His timing is always right, and he will not disappoint us.
