Spring 2020 Blog: May

Image
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…

Doesn’t it say somewhere in scripture that we are to go and make disciples? Oh yeah! In Matthew 28:19 Jesus told us specifically to do that and throughout scripture we see that modeled for us. Question for each of us: Do we do that? Do we purposely bring people into our lives, to walk life with, to pour into and to teach so that they can go and do the same? Or are we to caught up in doing it all ourselves because we don’t have time to teach, or they won’t do it as good or maybe jealousy that they may do it better! Jesus told us to go and make disciples, Paul modeled it throughout the New Testament and we should be doing exactly that today: so that those who have walked life with you, can lead as you have modeled. Do we allow that to happen?  Well, God has a way of shoving you to the side, if you haven’t allowed that to happen and will slap you upside the head with a 2x4 if you're not careful, to ensure you are carrying out His commands. As most of you know I have had my share of …

Thanks to you all for your prayers and concerns over my health. I am blessed to have so many pray and reach out! Thank You! I guess I will share with you what occurred during that time. Even though I was down, was not out and was extremely blessed with all that God still had go on around me. Although I wasn’t up to full speed and for much up, at no speed, God kept the ministry going and the outreach extended to those we have had the pleasure to have met over the years and actually were blessed to host.  Many of you may not know, but we have a ministry of outreach where HiS PRINT extends in-country scholarships to out of country players, coaches and individuals to come to the United States and spend week to two weeks here with us. The only obligation the individual has is to provide their own transportation to get here. This has been a blessing to host many over the years and look forward to more in the future. BUT, this all would not be made possible without the open heart and openne…

2020 Blog 1

How many of you have started the year off with a New Year’s Resolution and 5 days into the new year, the resolution has already been broken! Hands raised; Mine are! I had every intention to start 2020 with a new blog at least twice a month, to keep you all posted on all that is going on and keep you up to date with new developments. Well, here we are in March and I have yet to get one blog out for 2020.   Let me take just a moment to catch you up on all that is going with me personally and maybe you will cut me a little slack for not keeping with my new year's resolution. Starting in the middle of November, I started losing energy and felt like I wasn’t catching my breath. Right after Thanksgiving it got worse, to the point I couldn’t walk 20 feet without getting tired and needing to rest. I got in to see my general practitioner and failed my EKG. She immediately got me to a cardiologist, and he put me through echo, bloodwork and stress test. I failed the stress test and was imme…

Winter 2019 Blog 3
Sometimes you just have to let the pictures say the words and fill in all the blanks your words can never quite begin to describe. These are just a small sample of the thank you’s we have received from all over the world from the 100,000 of pounds of equipment we have sent around the globe! Shipments around the world! We pray that we would be able to meet every need, but that is not always possible. We receive the requests and fill them from the donations we have received from individuals, teams, schools, universities, leagues and professional teams. The needs are great and God has blessed us with collections from all over Houston, across Texas and from around the nation.  We ask that you join us in prayer for the supplies of equipment requested and the finances necessary to meet those shipping needs. We have seen God open door after door, allowing us to share where we send, because those who ask and receive, will always ask why!  Remember Jesus loves you and so do …
