Hiding His Word in Our Hearts

"I have hidden Your Word in my heart that I might not sin against you."
Psalm 119:11
When Joshua did his birthday outreach this summer to collect new basketballs for the at-risk young men of Philadelphia's inner city being ministered to at Rock Ministries, we did not know the great way Buddy Osborn and Paul Orr were going to have the young men earn the new basketballs. (Joshua's family and friends donated over 30 new basketballs for Joshua's birthday!)


Recently, when Joshua presented the basketballs to Buddy, Buddy told us that the boys would earn a new basketball by memorizing scripture! Wow...we were thrilled! Click here to see more about this. We just received this link from Rock Ministries.


Buddy Osborn ("Uncle Buddy") and Joshua

Please be praying for the young men of Rock Ministries! May they know and abide in the perfect love of our Heavenly Father and Savior. May they yield the hearts and lives to Him.

We encourage you to visit the Rock Ministries site and see all God is doing through this ministry.

Also, if you haven't read Psalm 119 lately, take some time to read it. It's lengthy, and it is so refreshing and encouraging! One of my favorite Psalms!

"How can a young man keep his way pure?
By living according to Your Word."
Psalm 119:9

Sharon,

I'm so excited for Joshua to see the fruits of his good deed!

That is wonderful!

Praising God for shining Joshua's love so far and wide in the young men's hearts that are touched by the good deed!

Praying for a harvest to bloom so tall that Joshua gets to watch it grow strong!

Love,
Jill
