My good friend Joshua Kendrick


I was able to squeeze in a lunch with my good friend Joshua Kendrick. We had been trying to get together for about 3 months and this week worked out for both of us.

Joshua is the Head Coach of the Varsity Boys basketball team at Hillcrest Christian School. For the last 7 years the Boys Varsity team has won their league and Josh is probably the main reason for this statistic. This year again Joshua probably did his best coaching job of his career winning the Heritage League title with a 13-12 record.

I have had the privelidge of helping Josh from time to time and he does an outstanding job bringing out the best in his players. I count him as one of my closest friends.

The thing about Joshua is that Coaching is his first love but currently his 2nd job, because you may or may not know Joshua is a police officer for the Burbank Police Departement. As we fellowshipped over lunch he told me about how difficult the job can be and how there have been several times were he has felt his life was in danger.

I just wanted to write and ask you to pray for all of our men and women who serve in the law enforcement agencies. We owe those who put their lives on the line each day a great deal of appreciation and respect. Thank you Joshua and thank all those who daily serve our city and our nation.
