Dallas

Posted in Uncategorized at 12:25 am by Scott Paschal

Ok, I thought I was going to get a couple days rest. I mean, I did travel nationwide for over 6 weeks straight. Nope, God says go… so I go. To Big D.

Dallas, Texas. Home of the world famous Dallas Cowboys and the greatest team in the NBA, the Dallas Mavericks.

I love Big D. I was raised in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex. Staubach and DorsettAikman and Emmitt. Sport is Dallas is second to none in America. The Texas Rangers baseball team rocks and the Dallas Stars NHL team is always challenging for the Stanley Cup.

Sport in Texas is big stuff. Maybe that’s why I love sports so much.

So, the day after we did the TV show at the Sony Ericsson Open (formerly the Nasdaq 100 Open), God set up a phone call that led me to fly to Big D the next morning… early. Way too early for my sleepy self. But, I’ve been in ministry for a while so I know when God says to go and I do just that.

I met with a guy. For now, I’ll keep the purpose quiet. But, I will say this is the exact right guy for the situation… actually two situations. Two God-blessed, God-ordained situations and I think he can handle what is to come.

That said, let me change gears and roll down the windows. God’s perfect timing has much in store for my walk with Him.

I’m founding a new ministry. A sports ministry.

My time of God carefully developing my personal and spiritual growth through following Him as He worked through me to envision and create and grow to fruition the International Christian Tennis Association has led to the main purpose.

What does all this mean? Well, first let me say I will still be as actively involved in ICTA as my new schedule allows. Next, let me say ICTA will soon rock the tennis world. And I mean ROCK THE TENNIS WORLD. Those of you who think you might have an idea about my intentions… you don’t. You can’t see that big. Take your wildest dream and it is probably not even close.

That said, I like to build things and when they are built I get bored and look for something new and challenging.

I look forward to the next few months, then I look forward to the next phase in my personal and spiritual development.

Yep, I was tired when I woke up at 5:30am after a short 3 hr nap. The drive, flight, layover, flight, drive, 4hr nap the next night, 7am flight, and drive was good. Coming home was great. Getting to the tennis courts and working with my WTA players was great. Having my junior guys hit for 5 hrs in the awesome Florida sun was great.

I’m cooking Enchillada’s tonite. The weather is perfect. ICTA missions has reached over 370,000 in just over a month. My friends love and support me. My mom is doing better after breaking 2 bones in her leg in a fall. Grampa is well at 88 years of age. My brother and I are building a great relationship. My mentors are always a phone call away. My Pro Tennis Team is playing in a pro tournament on a mission trip in Alabama this week coming up and staying at Nasser’s house. I have a full week+ to hit balls in the warm Florida sun and lose the 7 lbs of belly I gained on the road….

Life is so good. God is so good. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else doing anything else. I love every single aspect of my life. There is nothing I would add or take away.

Spike, Chris, Robert, Eric, David, David, Dax (look for a call soon, I’m excited about SOAR)… so many friends, so many supporters… I am such a fortunate guy!

God is Good,

Scott
