A recent trip to Orlando also led me to Southeastern University Baseball team in Lakeland, Florida.  Southeastern has some awesome young men as I got to workout with them, speak about the parable of the talents in Matthew 25:14-28 and challenged them to use their Athletic influence for Jesus Christ on their campus, in the community, to their opponents and their fans.  I was also able to meet with their athletic director and my old baseball coach at Nyack to establish an Athletes in Action SportLinc relationship where we empower them even more and add to what the Holy Spirit is doing in their already flourishing Athletic Department.

Scott Mottice has been Athletes in Action Staff at University of Wisconsin for 17 years and will be the new director and my boss of Sportlinc in January when he moves from Wisconsin to Ohio.  Scott and I flew to Orlando for two days of stealing knowledge from Gilbert and his team who coach college and high school students all across the country with Campus Crusade for Christ.  It was extremely helpful for Scott and I and our Sportlinc Team.

It was great to spend time and interact with Dan and his wife Melissa in Lakeland, Florida.  They were the very first of many teammates to join our team.  Without people like Dan and Melissa millions of lives wouldn’t be touched.  Thank you Dan and Melissa and thank you to all of you who pray, encourage and support me  financially here at Athletes in Action!  I love you all!
