ICTA Travel Tour to 2009 US OPEN brochure

(click above!!)

Our ICTA Travel Tour to 2009 brochure is ready!

Check out our PDF pic version in the link above.  This link will show you how the software version of the brochure looks, before we print it.

When you look at the PDF pic, realize our actual paper/hard copy itself is a tri-fold brochure.  (When folded it will not look like the PDF, which is just a flat, unfolded piece of paper version.)

What that means is the right side of the PDF’s top pic is the brochure’s cover.  (Basically, the whole PDF top pic is the back of the paper before it is folded… if that makes any sense.)

The bottom PDF pic is the actual inside sections of the brochure… you will see a welcome letter, some ICTA Fun Facts, and our 2009 US OPEN  Travel Tour schedule and prices.

Visualize it all as a tri-fold brochure, not a flat piece of paper, or it might get confusing!

And, call me soon if you want to go with me to the 2009 US OPEN on our first-ever ICTA Travel Tour!

We have a limited amount of availability!

God bless,  Scott Paschal

The International Christian Tennis Association is preparing to send a group of Christian pro tennis player missionaries to South America for 4 straight weeks to compete in ITF Pro Circuit tournaments and share their faith in Jesus to those God sends!

I’m really, really excited about this special opportunity.

The ICTA Women’s Pro Tennis Team plans to journey to Buenos Aires, Argentina on November 20, 2008, and is scheduled to arrive in Quito, Ecuador by December 8, 2008, where they will stay until between the 18th and 22nd.

Competing in two ITF Pro Circuit tournaments back to back in Argentina, then two ITF Pro Circuit tournaments back to back in Ecuador, our Christian missionaries will have an incredible opportunity to shine for Christ in both countries, as well as test their ability to handle the hardships and adversity that come with such a long missionary journey.

Traveling for such long periods of time isn’t easy, it’s not as sexy as people like to think.

It’s hard, and it can be dangerous, particularly for girls heading to South America alone.

And as many of you know… Rachel and Melody Snelen, co-captains of ICTA Women’s Pro Tennis Team, are two of the most beautiful women on the pro tennis circuit.

They are noticed everywhere they go.  Both have amazing blue eyes, tan skin, long blonde hair, and are in world class physical shape.

That said, people notice them wherever they go.  They stand out.

They are also both outspoken individuals.

Rach and Mel have strong opinions and beliefs, and are able to openly and brilliantly share their thoughts and religious beliefs.

With this, they stand out even more….

But, as you can already figure, travel to certain countries can be very dangerous, particularly for those who stand out.  The news is full of stories about kidnappings and murders towards women visiting South America.

So why do Rachel and Melody Snelen constantly put their lives at risk and pour their money and time into Christian missions, both tennis related and non-tennis related?

If you don’t know, read your Bible.  More than read it, study it.  More than study it, live it and breathe it.

Maybe then you will get a clue….

Also going to South America is my “adopted” daughter, Anastasia Kharchenko, whom I have coached and have been legal guardian of for over 2 years.

In addition, up to two other players I coach could travel with the ICTA Women’s Pro Tennis Team on parts of this missionary journey.

Plus, I’m trying to fit a couple of the tournaments into my schedule!  I wanna go, too!!  I enjoy traveling to new places and meeting people.  And I love watching God work through the willing hearts of missionaries who have given their hearts to Him.

Please keep this potential month long missionary journey in South America in your prayers, that the tournaments will go on as scheduled, that our missionaries will remain safe, and that their ministry is all that God has for it to be.

We look forward to showing you the neat pics and video we will take!!

God bless,

Scott Paschal

Rachel Snelen Leads ICTA Christian Tennis Outreach to Rome, Italy

Posted in Faith, International Christian Tennis Association, rachel snelen, Teamwork tagged , , , , , at 10:16 pm by Scott Paschal

Here are a few pictures from International Christian Tennis Association’s foundation laying Christian outreach to Italy.

The journey was a big success and Rachel Snelen, ICTA Women’s Pro Tennis Team Captain, did a fantastic job preparing and implementing this event to a safe and successful conclusion.  Currently, Rach is making blog specifically for her Outreach to Italy!  Pics and journal entries should be available this week!

My hope and prayer is other pro tennis players and world class junior tennis players will, following Rachel Snelen’s exemplary example, discover a passion for allowing God to use their lives and talents to make Him known as they travel to all parts of the globe competing in tennis events.

Nothing is more important than living for Christ.  Nothing.

God bless!
