Praise be to Jesus for the month of March. It was a complete blessing and I thank you all so much for all of your prayers.
The month started off on March 8th with a powerful visit to Athens, GA. Ron Coursen, Head Athletic Trainer, invited me up to share with the Georgia Football Team. My Brother in Christ, Keith Pace from Destin, FL was there with me and we witnessed the Power of God move young men’s hearts.
I left Athens and traveled to Clinton, SC on March 9th for an FCA Prayer Breakfast at the Clinton Family YMCA. It was fruitful, there were high school students, college students, church leaders, homeless, juvenile delinquents all in attendance and all were blessed by the Word of God.
After Clinton my next stop was Tuscaloosa, AL on March 10th at First Baptist Tuscaloosa Downtown for a Vision Awareness Dinner and Fundraiser along with Pastor Gill McKee, former strength coach Rich Wingo, Jack Rutledge and many friends along with a very good quartet singing. God really blessed us all.
I made a stop on Friday morning, March 11th to speak to the 3rd grade at Pleasant Grove Elementary School. I love any opportunity I get to speak and share God’s Word to young children. They were a great group of children, they were nice enough to give me a laundry basket full of snacks which Shelly and I are still eating. 🙂
I ended the week that night down in Linden, AL at Linden Baptist Church for their Wild Game Dinner with Pastor Randy Creel. It was a great group of people and God really blessed the night.
On March 23rd I traveled to Hattiesburg, MS and shared with Former Alabama Coach Ray Perkins Men’s Bible Study Group. The next morning I spoke to two groups, 7th-9th grade and 10th-12th grade at Presbyterian Christian School. Both services had young people confessing and rededicating their lives to Christ. That afternoon Coach Perkins and I went out and played a round of golf. We ended up all square with a little upon further review. 🙂
The next morning I was back in Tuscaloosa speaking at TCHS. Patsy Howell along with Sue Brewer headed this up, and with the principle consent I was able to come and speak with the students. It was the same format as PCS in Hattiesburg. This school was particularly special because Patsy had Coach Club Volleyball with my late wife Ellen. It was an emotional yet powerful event for all. Patsy have been sending me some very good feedback from the students.
March 26th I was in Childersburg, AL for an event to benefit Sharon Stewart. Sharon has a disease called Sarcoidosis and has set up a foundation to bring awareness to this affliction. Please be sure to visit her website at www.sharonstewartsarcoidosisfoundation.com
The next morning I traveled to Birmingham, AL and spoke at Mt. Canaan Full Gospel Church. It was such a powerful service. God Blessed us in a might way that morning. Their website is www.mcfgc.org and their church phone # is 205-929-0707 if or should you want to order a copy of the DVD which I highly recommend. I believe this message to be a mighty move of God. Pastor and co-Pastor, Willie and Patricia O’Neal were very receptive of me and their staff and elders were first class individuals.
On March 29th my princess turned 8 years old! We had a birthday party down in Destin, FL with friends. And God blessed Shelly with a little Pomeranian puppy named Fuzzy.
I am closing out the month on Thursday, March 31st doing a fundraiser for my good friend Clyde Goode who has been stricken with Lukemia. Alot of former Alabama football players will be out signing autographs and autioning memorabilia. This will be at Steel 1st and 23rd in Downtown Birmingham it starts at 4pm. Everyone is welcome to come out.
My Ministry is continuing to grow, and I know I would not be able to continue to have the impact for God’s Kingdom without so many Saints of God praying for me and my family. Please be sure to check out my schedule and come visit if I am in the area, and also feel free to contact me through the booking tab if you have an event or church you would like for me to visit. Also, in closing be sure to check out the web banner on my page for Cruise with a Cause. You can click on this and it will take you directly to their web page. This is a Missions Cruise to Jamacia that I will be attending and speaking along with many other amazing speakers and artist. I would love for any of you that could to join me for this May 30th – June 4th, the rates are incredible and it is a wonderful opportunity to be a part of a Mighty work of God in the lives of the men, women and children of Jamacia. Thank you again and I look foward to coming to a city near you.
