ICTA-Egypt Pro Tennis Tour!

Posted in Uncategorized at 10:43 am by Scott Paschal

International Christian Tennis Association is sending a Pro tennis team to Egypt for up to 4 ITF Pro Circuit tournaments.

Egypt…I’ve written about Egypt lately.

So did God…in the Bible. Egypt is a big deal in Biblical history.

After writing about Hassan a few weeks ago, I was randomly contacted by a Christian tennis guru who spoke about Egypt. God really used him to put the letters E G Y P T in my brain!

WTA #600, Anastasia Kharchenko, laughing during workout in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Then, less than 24 hours later, and randomly, Anastasia Kharchenko (my academy student of  over 3.5 years and an ICTA Pro Team member)  informed me there are going to be 4 ITF Pro Circuit tournaments in Egypt…starting in a couple weeks!

Hmmmm…

Here we are preparing for a last minute (and HUGE) ICTA Large Scale Outreach to the world’s 5th largest pro event…and we are in the middle of ICTA Pro Tennis Team competing on a USTA Pro Circuit hard court tour..and now God says “get er done” in Egypt!

What!? You gotta be kidding!?

God gave me a couple of weeks to prep the Sony Ericsson Open outreach to 300,000 tourny attendees…and I need a minimum of 3 months!!

Now, He says, “Send ’em to Egypt, Coach!”

Planning a month long pro tennis tour of a place we’ve never been takes weeks!  Not days!

Now tires are squealing and gears are grinding as I hit the brakes and turn the wheel, again, as God quickly says, “Turn here!”

Well, anyway, all the documents have been sent to the proper places for visas..and our goal is the ICTA Women’s Pro Tennis Team begins arriving in Cairo by next Thursday.

The ICTA Women’s Pro Tennis Team competes on the ITF Pro Circuit worldwide. Each team member is trained to help other players in need. The pro circuits are lonely, can be dangerous, and are beyond question..Godless.

Please keep International Christian Tennis Association in your prayers as we strive daily to shine for Christ and to Serve Hard!

God bless!

Coach Scotty
