Last night was our first night of “Father/Son Baseball”. Every Tuesday night during the summer a group of dads and sons gather in a grassy field to play baseball. Moms and daughters talk and watch. Afterwards snacks are provided and one of the fathers shares a devotional with the group.
Last night for the devotional Stephen told the boys the incredible story of Josh Hamilton–a major league baseball player who was suspended from baseball for a year because of drug use. However, through a praying Grandmother and a time of rehab at the Winning Inning in Tampa, FL (A Christian Baseball Facility), Josh got saved and his life radically changed. He is now on fire for the Lord and playing baseball again (for the Texas Rangers) with a strong testimony that is reaching many. He got back with his wife and kids and he now travels and shares his story. He is also one of the best baseball players this year. We had a time of prayer for him last night that he would stay strong for the Lord and that the Lord would use Him mightily.
