What an amazing tennis camp we've been enjoying during our mission trip to the world's 6th largest pro tournament!
The glory of God is radiating throughout the Pac Life Open as your ICTA heads into the final stretch of our mission trip.
People have come up to me all day telling me thank you for our Christian witness, then they share their own personal stories.
In other booths workers are telling their customers "God bless you" as the customer leave... then the customers smile and say the same!
In the stadium people are talking about their faith! ICTAand faith are being discussed all over the place, and it's ok! Word of our ministry is spreading like wildfire.
One volunteer told me we are one of the most talked about aspects of the tournament! Awesome! I like that. I even like those people who can't stand us!
Positive or negative, it's good faith is being discussed and our ministry is getting noticed!
Emboldened by our presence and tireless passion for Him, people are saying such wonderful things to me about our ministry work, and I've gotten more hugs today than in all our mission trips combined since our beginning! To say God has us in the "zone" right now would be accurate.
Retired senior citizens are grasping hope for a life that is still useful. They feel they have a purpose! Wow, we have so many new members who are senior citizens!
Today, a coach shared with me how pro players speak about the impact ICTA has made on the tour. Apparently, more than just tennis fans are counting on ICTA to keep on truckin'.
This has been an incredibly God-blessed large scale mission trip to the Pacific Life Open, the world's 6th largest pro tournament.
Melody flew back to Florida last nite and this morning. She's worn out from being on our missions tour for nearly 5 weeks straight. Tonite, she and Rachel, her twin sister, are taking a much needed break and attending Chris Tomlin's How Great is Our God tour in Jacksonville. I know that will really feed them spiritually, and they are having a great time.
She will fly back in a couple of days with Shantel to help wrap up this mission trips and prepare for our journies to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon.
