The Lord new about His House Ministries forever. That’s something that blows my wife and I
away. Another thing that is truly miraculous is how the Lord will use the insignificant of people to do the significant for
His purpose. Time and time again the Lord displays this throughout the bible and is still doing it. The Lord has given each
and every one of us a gift. We have the choice to use that gift, or not.
His House Ministries was physically started in March 1983 but it would be another 22 years before it would come to term.
In November 1983, eight years after a crippled wrestler used his arms and first drug his body onto a wrestling mat, He gave
his life to the Lord. Things would never be the same again.
The wrestler was quite successful throughout the years but could never reach the pinnacle points of his career. By March
of 1983, that same wrestler became His House Ministries first and only wrestler. He entered tournament after tournament under
Team His House. After deciding to wrestle for the Lord, the wrestler was truly blessed by the Lord. He was given many of those
dreams that eluded him for so long. "And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing,
ye shall receive." -Mathew 21:22
After eighteen years of coaching young men and women in sports. Producing countless champions and successful athletes,
The wrestler finally figured out what his gift from God was. Coaching and mentoring young people. That was it. That was God’s
gift to this person.
In late 2002, My wife and I accepted the Lord and this time made a promise to live our lives for Him. We gave our
children to the Lord, everything we owned, and asked the Lord to truly use us. We asked Him to send us where He needed us,
not were we wanted to go. It was truly an act of FAITH and we are happy to say, we wouldn’t want it any other way.
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who have been called according
to His purpose."
With the great support of my wife, we have been involved in sports for many years now. When we came to Texoma Land we knew
what we were sent here to do for the Lord. We may not have known how but, He took care of that. We want to thank all of you
for hearing that same voice we did and making this all possible for these young people and all those that the Lord has lined
up for us.
We are proud and happy to welcome this years wrestlers to the His House Team. A team that is truly held in God's Hand.
You are all special and we hope that you use your gifts that the Lord has given and is molding for you.
