When he spoke to the 18-30 yr. old young men at BWAP LXIV (8-11-16), he urged them to be grateful for what they had. He also urged them to work hard to make the most of every opportunity.
Accompanying Jenaro to his Nine Minute Speech was his beautiful and intelligent fiance. Between the two of them they speak five languages. Jenaro came through the YWAP Program as a shining star leaving traces of his positive character traits on other young people who came across his path. We're grateful to God for allowing Jenaro to be a part of the BWAP program today after being a part of the YWAP program many years ago.
Plenty of other folks also visited BWAP LXIV. Pastor Al Robinson from Spirit of Truth Urban Ministry brought his whole basketball team and volunteers. It was an honor to have Pastor Al and crew in the BWAP house. We hope Pastor Al and crew will be regular collaborators in our efforts to teach, train and send young men out on to the courts of Life.
We also had the honor of a visit from the very first member of the YWAP Block Club Basketball Team. Donald (Buddy) Dahlke came and laced up his basketball shoes. If you need some drywall work done, Buddy is also known as "The Finishator" for his prowess in drywall finishing. At BWAP we like to finish with the words of Jesus; "It is finished."
From the Island of St. Vincent in the Caribbean, we were honored to have Pastor Sandy and some of his ministry team in the BWAP house. Who knows, maybe someday God will take BWAP on the Global courts of life!
Conflict is needed for growth to happen and BWAP is experiencing some growing pains. We did have some conflict on Thursday night, but it was needed. Conflict when embraced and dealt with properly will cause a greater prosperity.
"On a good day, enjoy yourself;On a bad day, examine your conscience.
God arranges for both kinds of days so that we won’t take anything for granted."
Ecclesiastes 7:14 The Message
Thanks for your time. Go do something nice for somebody.
