The Story

In 2014, I visited Mexico for the first time to help build a house, alongside other professional athletes, for a family who had lost their home in a fire and was in desperate need of a helping hand.  Because of that one single experience, I spent the majority of 2015 living in Mexico as I attended Discipleship Training School through the missionary organization, Youth With a Mission.  While attending the school, I continued to help with home builds and realized my passion for this act of service, and my heart for seeing athletes recognize their value outside of their respective sport.  I'm now excited to announce that I have been invited to become a permanent part of the organization that gave me my first experience with missions, changing the trajectory of my life! 

Beginning in April of 2016, I will be making a permanent move to Tijuana, Mexico to work full time with Youth With a Mission.  My initial commitment will be a two-year period.  While there I will be working with various outreach ministries to the homeless, local communities, after-school programs for children, and many, many more home builds.  My heart is really for the mission of Homes of Hope, and Hope Sports--to provide homes for families in desperate need, while giving athletes the opportunity to find their value beyond their God-given athletic abilities.  

Based on a rough budget, I have estimated I need $1000 of monthly support.  This will go to cover housing, food, and other basic needs, as well as allow me to bring my truck with me and have personal transportation available.  By supporting me, you will be partnering with me as I try to show God's love in Mexico and work side by side with professional athletes as they have the same eye-opening and life- changing experience that has led me to move to Mexico.  Any amount you can offer, whether a one-time donation or monthly donation, is deeply appreciated. 

To learn more about Youth with a Mission and Hope sports, follow these links.  There is a great video on Hope Sports that will show you how both the family and the athletes are impacted by the experience.

These last two weeks have been very difficult and uncertain.  I recently learned of the severity of my dad's health issues and have been unsure about my course of action.  This week it has become very clear that I have to leave my plans in Mexico behind and go home to Texas to be with my family.  I'm extremely grateful for the support that has made this time in Mexico possible. I desperately ask for your prayers for my father as his health is rapidly declining, and my family as we  stand together in this.  Please also pray for me as I make the twenty hour drive home to Texas. 

God bless,
Shane

This weekend will be the second Hope Sports build this year. We will have over 70 athletes here to build three homes this weekend, including the US ski and snowboard team! 

I have begun the training process to become a B builder on the build sites, which means I will lead the construction of the trusses, roofs, and shingle installation.  Basically everything that would give my mom a heart attack. 

I'm enojoying my time here, and getting involved in lots of different daily operations of the base. Possibly the most exciting is the kitchen! 

I would appreciate your prayers for housing, as I am still searching for a more comfortable living situation within my budget.  My father is also continuing to fight against his cancer, and needs as much prayer for hope, encouragement, and healing as he can get. Lastly, my most pressing need at the moment is a new laptop. I have been using the public computers and a borrowed laptop for the majority of my needs,but they are either slow or lacking in functionality. If you could help me in this I would be exceedingly grateful. 

Thank you all again for your continued support! I pray that God bless you all for your generous hearts.

Yesterday I arrived to Tijuana after two days of driving. I'm happy to be reunited with so many good friends.  These next few days I'll be looking for a place to rent before beginning the process to join as staff at the ywam base. I'd appreciate any and all prayers for me to find something comfortable and affordable. The first hope sports build I'll be helping with is just a week away! Thanks again to everyone for helping me follow this dream. You will all be a part of every home that is built and every life impacted. God bless!
