I had a very eventful week. This was the first full week living with my host family. It has been eventful. We have played everything from four square to basketball. The picture is of me signing autographs at a camp we did on Friday night in Bay Village. It is the coolest city I have been to while in Cleveland. It is right on Lake Erie. It has a unique little beach with a light house right next to it. I have a few photos so I will try to put a few up.

We also had our first home game on Saturday. We are expecting a sellout but it rained. We won 3-2. I got a play about 25 minutes and was able to make an impact on the game. I am hoping to get more playing time in our next game. We will have to see how practice and everything goes.

I do not know how many of you know this but I am working with Pro-Soccer-Ministries while I am out here. We are going through a series of videos from They are used in a lot of corporate companies right now but are bases on Biblical teaching. They are really awesome. They were created by the former CEO of Gallup and he is a Christian. They are compelling and go against typical corporate teaching. Check them out....

I have a few prayer request. I have had a great job offer and I am praying that if God wants me to take that position that He would keep it open until I am done in September. Also please pray that I can keep my focus on what is important and let me be a positive influence for my teammates and my host family.
