Break Free Dallas,Texas

Well, I (Josh) had the privilege to go to Dallas Texas for a long weekend to see how Break Free is doing over there and to spend some time with Mike (bishop) and Ellen Swalley. I was so encouraged and thankful for how things have been going in Dallas. Mike is a great friend and co-partner in this ministry. Mike has done an awesome job at pouring into young guys at the Lions Den. The Lions Den meets at a house that is a Christian run ministry to help young men in the more lower class areas. Mike has been pouring into three of these young guys (daniel,Giovani,Carlos) by teaching them Gods Word and breakdancing. I was very impressed with how respectful and loving these young high schoolers were with everyone. I think of the words the Lord spoke when He said " People will know you are my disciples by your love for one another." Then we also went to another practice where Mike reaches out to Bboys at UTD (univeristy of texas Dallas) and this practice is more evangelism focused in which Christ is being shared to other bboys. Overall, I was very blessed to see what the Lord is doing through Mike and Ellen. Please pray that when Mike and Ellen plan to leave Texas in a couple years that they would be able to enturst the ministry to other faithful workers to continue Dallas Break Free. " And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses, entrust to reliable men who also will be qualified to teach others. " 2 Timothy 2:2
