EMMANUEL SANDERS! GO STEELERS!
I am so proud of Emmanuel Sanders, one of my former Young Life Kids in Texas. He is in his rookie season with the Pittsburgh Steelers and he is having a GREAT SEASON! He was a standout football player at Bellville High School (where I was on staff with Young Life) and was very involved in the ministry. I was able to spend a significant amount of time with him and truly enjoyed getting to share a relationship with and to mentor him! He attended SMU where he became their all-time leader in receptions and receiving yards. I committed to Pray for Emmanuel every day when he left for SMU and that continues to this day. He is having an impact on his team and an impact for Christ in his new home in Pittsburgh. One of my youth group kids got an EMMANUEL SANDERS JERSEY (#88) for Christmas and wore it this past weekend at our youth conference. It was surreal to see his name on the back of an NFL Jersey! I was beaming with pride! The steelers are having a great season as they play the JETS in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday evening!

Have a great day! Praying for you all! More to come on our Resurrection 2011 experience from Gatlinburg this past weekend!
