“Then you will call, and the Lord will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I. If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk, and if you spend yourselves on behalf of the hungry, and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like noonday.” Isaiah 58:9-10
Each night I sit in the bullpen or dugout waiting to answer the call to enter the game, waiting for the call to make an impact on the outcome of the game. I have spent most of my life and my entire career waiting for the call, realizing that my impact extends further than what the scoreboard says at the end of the game and past the fans sitting in the stands. We all have an opportunity to impact the lives around us and make a lasting influence
This opportunity I have been given to play baseball for a living is a platform that God has given my wife and I to impact the lives of those around us. We have realized our biggest call in life is to have a lasting influence on those around us. To help provide opportunities, support dreams, and be a positive influence in the lives of others.
*For every strikeout Josh has during the season, $43 (Josh's number) are donated to a chosen organization in the city for which he is playing*
We realize that we are only two people in this world, but with a dream and a desire to help those around us, we can make a difference. Our goal every season is to help others Answer Their Call in life. Join us during the season, and help answer our call by making a pledge with us. Through this program, each night I will continue to sit in the bullpen or dugout and wait for the phone to ring. But, now that call has more meaning and a purpose. The call is magnified and with each call that I answer the impact in the lives of others is that much greater. Join us teach season and make a pledge to answer your call.
