Wasn’t sure how to share this with you all, but felt it needed to be shared, something that me and my sister and two brothers are extremely proud of. 

This past Monday, August 24 our parents, Charles and Cora Moss, celebrated their 72nd wedding anniversary! Yeah you read that correctly, 72 years of marriage. Since my folks live in Indiana near my older brother and we have recently had to move them into a full time care facility, most of the family was not able to celebrate this wonderful event with them. My Pop is 91 and in failing health. Pop has recently suffered some small strokes and is living in the hospital area during rehab, while mom is living in their small apartment. Because of this, they have not been able to spend much time together. But on this special day the staff bought flowers, decorated the chapel and wheeled Pop down to visit with Mom to celebrate their 72 years together. Although saddened that I was not able to attend, I was blessed immeasurably by the pictures take…

Coach Antonio PoljakSisak, Croatia

The HiS PRINT family, and me personally, are deeply saddened by the passing of our dear brother Coach Antonio Poljak in Sisak, Croatia. For several years, Coach Antonio served the ministry of HiS PRINT as our local in-country coach and the coach of the Sisak Storks Little League baseball team. Coach Antonio also served as our Croatia Warehouse Manager and shipping operator. He held that position until the middle of 2019. We would not have been able to help the thousands across The Balkans and Eastern Europe without Coach Antonio's hard work and organization. He was dedicated to everything he did and led with a servant's heart that was unmatched. 

Coach Antonio served his country in war during the early 90's and was called into duty to serve with the Croatian army in Afghanistan for several months in 2009-10. He and his wife Tanja have two children: a daughter Ejla (22) and a son Borna (18.) Antonio walked this earth for 52 years and was tak…

I forgot to mention on my birthday post that this was the first year in 12 that I have spent my birthday at home in Texas (not overseas on a Mission Learning Opportunity in The Balkans.)  It was nice to be at home for a small, peaceful, quiet celebration.  Although I miss my brothers and sisters overseas and they have taken care of me on my birthday those 12 years, it was good to be with my bride and just veg on the couch!
Relationship Series: American Football What a blessing the American Football Relationship Series has been to connect with the coaches and players overseas since we were not allowed to travel to them and conduct the summer camps. In May I started interviewing 65 high school, college and former NFL players and coaches from across the country as well as team chaplains, pastors and ministry leaders, who I asked …

Spring Blog 2020 - June 23

Where does one start? Do they reflect on the year and what has happened? Do they look forward to what the rest of the year has in store? Do they contemplate on all the things that need to get done and let those concerns and worry rule the day? Do they look down at the things checked off on their to do lists and take a deep breath and smile or see the unchecked boxes and frown? Do they sit and wonder what they missed in life or question how they have gotten where they are today? I don’t think there is anything wrong with any of these questions, UNLESS, all of those questions were not bathed in prayer. Life is life and it moves pretty quickly and if we are not careful we can get caught up in it and miss our purpose for being here and the real Hope in life that gives us the purpose to live it.Today is my birthday and I just spent the early morning with my Heavenly Father and resting in His arms while sitting in His lap; there is no greater place to be than that. Those times are precious …

Spring 2020 Blog: May

Hello there!  Where do you start? So much has happened since my last blog in April, but also very little (we all know what I am talking about there with COVID-19.) So much has changed and so much is unknown. Questions arise as to what the new normal will be and will hugs and handshakes be outlawed or carry a fine with them. One thing we are taught in scripture is that we are not to worry and to lay everything with and before Him. In Matthew 6:25-34, Jesus tells us to not worry about our life, what we will eat or drink or what we will wear. God knows, provides and protects. We are not to worry about tomorrow, because each day has enough trouble on its own. That doesn't say we are not to plan for tomorrow, we should and that is time well spent, but never to worry about it. Then in Matthew 11:28-30, Jesus tells those who are weary and need rest are to come and lay all those cares with Him and He will give us rest. To sit and listen to His kind and humble heart and we will find rest.…

Easter 2020 - He Did It!

Joyful EASTER Sunday!
The day of Rejoicing, HE HAS RISEN!
As I was thinking and praying, asking God to reveal what He would like me to say, I felt the overwhelming presence of Him around and on me. That would not be possible without the Victory that is Ours Today, through what occurred over 2,000 years ago. God, whose love is rich with Mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in our sin. It is by grace we have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ, who gained victory or death and sin, and seats us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus! Why? So that He could show the incomparable riches of His grace, in the coming ages which was expressed in His kindness to us in Jesus. 
This time in our lives has become a time of Cancellations! Schools, business trips, work, shopping, and group gatherings have all been cancelled, BUT nothing Canceled, can Cancel, will Cancel, Jesus's Resurrection. His Victory over death, defeating Sin and Rising in New Life, is our…
