Spring MLO Update

Image
Our team has started to arrive in Croatia to prepare for our Spring 2019 MLO (Mission Learning Opportunity.) God has continued to open doors and hearts to us, and we will soon begin meetings with Croatians in our Intentional Walk Coach Conference, business leaders workshop and community service ministries. We are excited to build new relationships and build on the ones we have made in the past!

After the patio is completed, we will expand the "Upper Room" (our meeting space for large groups) and then get started on the desperately needed and highly anticipated commercial kitchen. The new commercial kitchen will allow us to comfortably sit and feed 60+ people. The addition will also incl…

Spring MLO - It's Here!

Image
Hello folks,

Well today is the day I leave to jump-start our spring MLO (Mission Learning Opportunity.) We are excited about all that God has planned and the amazing opportunities He is preparing for us while in Sisak! Reaching out to you reminds me that it has been a while since I’ve sent you an update and a lot of water has run under the bridge. So just to give you a few highlights let me tell you what has happened and what is getting ready to happen.  The 2019 Spring Mission Learning Opportunity will be from March 9-17. We will be hosting two major events: (1) "My Utmost Business Seminar" where we are expecting 30 - 40 businessmen and women participants, and (2) "Extra Point Football Coaches Clinic" which has 75 coaches from five countries registered. We also have planned several trips to the Food Bank where we will distribute food and pray with local families, and are planning a visit with teachers at a local elementary school.
On February 24 we held a Commissi…

HiS PRINT Expansion

Hello Folks,

Expansion! Sounds like a huge word that describes something that is going to be massive in nature. Well, we serve a God who is massive and is always looking for ways to expand the Kingdom! One of those ways is through more equipment being donated every week. We often say, "We will soon need a bigger warehouse!" and that is exactly what is happening! Just this past week we were blessed with over 950 football helmets, 300+ shoulder pads, along with jerseys, pants and pads. We were also blessed with a huge shipment of pallets full of hockey donations from the Aerodrome Houston facility and the Anaheim Ducks organization in California! We also received a call from Dallas to pick up thousands of football pants, jerseys and pads.  God is formulating great marriages with other ministries and we are excited to be walking alongside Fellowship of Christian Athletes and now Sports Reach! God is going above and beyond, and the donated equipment is opening doors to share Hi…

Still Trying to Process

Hello Folks,

We are back home safe and sound. I am somewhat caught up and for the most part rested from our mission to Nigeria. Wow, what an awesome time we had there and the friendships that were built will last a life time. We are excited at all God did and the open doors He produced with those we met.
We are looking forward to the future and the opportunities that we have in helping grow the game, develop relationships and share the love of Christ. In the coming year, we will be sending over more equipment to help Temitayo and his academy to further the game around the city of Ilorin and in the nearby communities. We are also extending an invitation to them to come and visit us here in Texas and develop a deeper relationship and establish ways to further help. Lastly, we are in the planning stages to return back to Nigeria next December to host Coaches Clinics and Player Camps in Ilorin. We are extremely excited and ready to do what God desires. 
Below you will see a thank you let…

Blog Days ??: Double T - Travel and Thanksgiving

Image
I start this blog out by saying ??, because I realize as I was starting to write, that this is actually Day 13 and that I have been miscounting the entire trip! Oh well, I can tell you for sure that today is travel day and that we are so thankful! 
As you can see from those opening statements I started writing this on our return trip back home and now that we have landed safely back on Texas Soil and rejoined our brides and family, I want to say thank you for praying for us and our families while we were away. I can tell you that from those prayers, God placed a dome of protection over and around us and His blanket of love and warmth rested on us! Never once did I feel threatened and although commotion would often happen around us, it was never directed at us! It was as if they couldn’t approach us unless we approached them or made acknowledgement that it was okay!

Twenty four hours is not long enough to process all that went on during this MLO and to be perfectly honest with you, I&…

Nigeria Blog: Travel Day

Image
Well, we made it safely from Ilorin to Abuja after a 50 minute flight. We made our way around to several places in Abuja today including sitting in on the Senate. But more about that later...

We are preparing to board the plane to Frankfurt and would ask for your prayers. We have been up since 6 a.m. Nigeria time and it’s currently 11:00 p.m. We will fly all night to Frankfurt, have a 4 1/2 hour layover, and then a nearly-12 hour flight home to Houston. We are beat and extremely hungry. We are praying to finish strong and would covert your prayers for the same! 

God bless each of you. Wow, have we had an MLO! It's been remarkable and helped each of us to be thankful for what we have and the friends who care about us! 
Have a wonderful God filled day!  HE DID IT!
