Team in LA and I am in Cleveland

I found a new host family so I must thank everyone for all their prayers. The family lives in a sub in northern Columbus. My new temporary mom, Donna, works at the local church. They go to a Nazarene church so it is similar to one that I went to back home. My new host dad's name is Chuck he is a fun -interesting guy - (good thing). They have two daughters living at home. One is 21 and the other is 19. We all seem to get along which is awesome. They all have a very sarcastic personality.

I am continuing to pray that I can become closer to my fellow brothers on the my new team. I am also praying that God will bless all those on the team that have not come to understand what I believe. I would love if everyone would continue to pray for comfort and for guidance as I try to establish some type of weekly Bible study on the team.

The picture is of my previous host family from Cleveland. They where such a blessing so I have high hopes for my new family. I will continue to pray that God will keep on blessing them as they move forward in a new direction as my old host dad takes on a new job.

As many of you know I didn't make the travel team this week for our game against Chivas in LA. I was however, thankful that Coach took me aside and talked to me. Everyone needs encouragement every once in a while. He said I needed to keep plugging along and it would come. This past week was rough in terms of practice. I didn't play as well as I had been playing. I needed to relax and play my game. This advice was what coach told me and I will take it to heart to see what next week brings.

Pray for my team, myself, and our fans. I believe I can make a big impact in this new city, Columbus.
