New Year's Resolutions

It’s that time again…..

Time for you to write that list of New Year’s resolutions that you will try (emphasis on “try”) to accomplish in 2011.

In 2011, I vow to….

Travel someplace beautiful…

Make a difference in the lives of those around me….

Meet new people of cultures different than my own…

Transform my faith in new and radical ways….

If you’ve got a resolution that sounds anything like one of these, than you’re in luck!

In August, 2011, we’re going to going to the most beautiful place in the world—Cape Town, South Africa!! Through door-to-door prayer and

Twas the Night before Christmas (Remix)

Twas the night before Christmas, in the Ace Hoops house

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;

The relationships we’re building are built with His care,

In hopes that Christ’s love with all we can share;

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,

While visions of basketball playing in their heads;

While Kristen is laughing, Miss Em’s in her cap,

And I have just settled down for a long winter’s nap,

When out on the court there arose such a clatter,

We sprang from the house to see what’s the matter.

Away to the gymnasium we ran like a flash,

Jingle Bells…

Nothing quite gets you into the Christmas spirit like 75 kids rocking out to Jingle Bells. Enjoy!

30 Hours to Live By

For most of you who have been following along, you know that a friend of mine and of the entire Ace Hoops family was kidnapped on October 20th of this past year in Juarez. Eventually released and unharmed (with exception of a few bumps and bruises), I had the chance to sit down with Joel yesterday and listen to him open up and share about his experience, recalling the moments as if it were yesterday….

Throughout his narrative, Joel paused to comment on some of the ways this has impacted him spiritually, and while most of the insights that he shared with me may not be revolutionary, they were nonetheless pow

Safe & Sound!

Hi Ace Hoopers!

From all of us in Juarez, we just wanted to send a quick note to say that we’re safe and sound at the Emmanuel Children’s Home in Juarez. Great (a little early for my liking) flight, no issues crossing the border….and just two hours in we’ve been entertained as we watch the kids from the home practice for their Christmas performance on Domingo (Sunday). We’ll make sure to get some good video!

Thanks for all the prayers, keep ’em coming!
