A Brand New Season

Please pray for us as we prepare for a brand new season of baseball ministry through EPISTLE SPORTS MINISTRIES. We have been:






since 1975. Please pray that the cards, letters, e-mails, phone calls and personal contacts will be used by God to encourage, challenge and strengthen these ballplayers during the course of the 2007 season.


“For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.” – Romans 15:4 (NIV)


  1. Father,

    I pray that you would be glorified as your kids engage in sports and use this as a means to advance your gospel. Please use all the calls, emails, and letters to bring encouragment to your kids and praise to your name. And at the end of the day, I pray that you Lord Jesus would be glorified. In Jesus name i pray....Amen

  2. amen to bill's prayer ...

    do you sort of miss florida and spring training? i was wondering ...

  3. Bill, thanks for your prayer and Saija, yes, this seems like a strange spring, the first time I haven't been down to Florida in about 28 years. I didn't go the first two years that I worked with the Blue Jays but went every year since then. Thanks for asking!


  4. Dear Piglrim...I don't really see how you can do so many things.
    It seems that you put a tireless effort into all you do and the best thing about it is even if you don't see a lot of the results here, you will surely know all about it in heaven!!
    Isn't is so nice though that once in a while the Lord DOES show you some results? How encouraging is THAT?...From Terry

  5. May the Lord be glorified in all you do...I especially like the scripture you ended that post with --it's a favorite of mine to end with (I don't know if you got a letter I sent you 2 weeks ago, then you'd know what I'm talking about).
    I agree with Terry's comment--as Christians woking for our Master we do not always see the results, but do I ever look forward to Heaven!!! And any little result is so encouraging. Great comment, Terry, as always!

  6. Terry brings up a good point: how DO you find the time to get everything done?!?

    Rest assured of my constant prayers!
