Two Former AIA Baseball Players

This was an article I could NOT pass up sharing. This young man played with Athletes in Action's Xenia Scouts team a few years back. It is a very sweet story of a kid who grew up in a Christian home, headed to Yale University to play baseball, enjoyed the 'freedom' of college and then fell face first at the feet of Jesus. What a great story of God's redemptive power in our lives! I would encourage you to take a few minutes to read it.

Also, we also wanted to introduce you to Emeel Salem. He played baseball on an Athletes in Action team that traveled to Latin America actually the year that John and I got engaged. He is presently playing with professionatlly with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in the minors. Emeel has a few songs that he wrote on itunes and we thought you may be interested in listening to a few.
