divots to dreams...

as many of you know, our church and its non-profit (the for the city network) have had a huge partnership with the schools in the st. john neighborhood. our goal is to seek the renewal and shalom of the city of austin. last year, reagan high school was in danger of being shut down by the state due to academic struggles and many from our church and community intervened and got involved, turning things around.  this year, the for the city network got reagan entered into a contest sponsored by the MLB to redo a baseball field.  the project started last june and after much hard work is completed! and it is BEAUTIFUL!  i went out yesterday for the ribbon cutting and my eyes filled with tears as i saw how the Lord brought all of this together and i began to think of the implications it would have for the future! i have never played on a field so nice! here is the news story:

greater things are yet to come, and greater things are still to be done in this city!
