2014 SPORTS REACH
order to share important news with someone, you must first get their attention.
We live in a society where people love sports. So how can we use sports to get
people’s attention in order to share the best news anyone could hear?
I am writing this on behalf of Sports Reach, a Christian sports ministry based out of Kentucky, that for 28 years has been using sports to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I would like to invite you to the 9th Annual Sports Reach Auction. This is an event to help raise funds for this ministry so that they can continue to use the avenue of sports to make a difference in lives of others.
The auction in on Thursday night, September 4, 2014 at Christ Church United Methodist, 4614 Brownsboro Rd., Louisville, KY. The silent auction begins at 4:45 pm with the serving line for the meal beginning at 5:15. The auction will begin at 6:30 and will be over by 8:30.
Our theme this year will center around the Matthew West song “Do Something.” You will be challenged to see what God would have you do. You have a great opportunity to make an impact in the life of many others.
You will have an opportunity to meet many sports and media personalities during the evening and while participating in a fun filled “Living Silent Auction” and the Live Auction. Items that will be auctioned off are Louisville football and basketball tickets; Kentucky basketball and football tickets; golf outings; fishing trips; autographed memorabilia; romantic getaways; celebrity wives purses; and more.
Guest and Item Updates will be coming to this site soon!
This is a casual dress event that allows you to buy and contribute to this ministry. Your help allows this ministry to not only share the Gospel directly with others but to help individuals grow in their faith. Here are a couple of comments from those who went on recent trips.
- “This trip has changed my life!”
- “I realized that I must be God-confident in every area of my life.”
- “I can’t wait to get home and share with my parents.”
As you can see, people that go on these trips come back different. When they come home different, they have a chance to impact those around them.
Finally, the goal of Sports Reach for the remainder of 2014 and for 2015 is to lives impacted in every way. We want to see people come to know Jesus, people to grow in their faith, and people learn how to share their faith. But each year, it gets harder and harder to reach out. But your help will make a great difference.
How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “ How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!” [Romans 10:14,15]
I am praying that you can come be part of a fun filled, life changing night.
Please let me know as soon as you can.
Tour #2 begins
May 17, 2010;
11:00 am- We have arrived in Chongquing from an early morning flight from Beijing. The team rolled out at 5:15 am to get to the airport for our 7:20 am flight. We don’t have a great deal of flying on this trip which is always a blessing. You are only allowed 42 lbs per person regardless of number of pieces of luggage that you check. It makes for an overage on the first flight since we have so many giveaways for the other teams and people.
Had some great friends great us at the airport. Weiming, Mr. Yang’s assistant and Sarge, in charge of the bus and travel, were friendly faces meeting us as we flew in. Mr. Yang is the guy that sets all of our stuff up. He has been in the government and part of the basketball federation but now also has a sports marketing company. He is always great to work with.
We are now on the bus, a very nice one at that, heading for Changshou. Supposed to be an hour ride but you never really know until you get there. The guys have really been great. They have jumped in and helped with luggage and really made it a point to try to talk with the locals.
4:30 pm- Finished our team time, led by Max Appel. We are excited about learning new things about ourselves. We had Ampicillin cheap online a good shoot around. The arena is really nice and the floor is super. That in itself is amazing in that we many cheap Amoxil times have slick floors, which I am expecting more times than not. Guys are resting a bit as we are getting ready for pregame meal. There seems to be pretty good chemistry at the moment, but you never know.
Game one is in the books with a Reach USA win 87-75. A real tough game physically but one that seemed to be in hand for most of the game. It was a close game early when Skylar McBee, now know as “Skylar McThree”, hit two threes to put the USA team up by 7 and managed to get it up to 15 in the first half. The Bayi Rockets fought back and cut the led to 7 at the half. The Chinese team got within 5 but again behind the hot shooting of McBee, 16 was the biggest second half margin.
