Yesterday, I had the good fortune to learn about an international endeavor begun my college friend, Bethany Haley. Beth, a licensed social worker and Ph.D. in Counseling was taken aback on a mission to the Congo with the number of children who’ve been forced to serve as children soldiers in war-torn sections of Africa. Through art and trauma therapy, Beth and her team help rehabilitate and provide hope for these children.
eXile International is a very worthy effort led by a very wonderful person. Take a few minutes this morning to click on the link and check out the work Beth and her team are doing to make a difference in the lives of children.
The Drillers won again last night, 9-3, pushing our season record to 8-2, good for 3rd place in the league. The only two losses were to a couple of teams tied for first. We get to play them both before the season finishes.
Congratulations this morning to Jamie Saveall, Ryan O’Neal, and all the Jessieville Lion baseball team. Last night in Harrison, the Lions masked Arkansas Baptist, 7-0, to advance to the Class AAA State Championship Game on Friday afternoon in Conway. I had the privilege to coach alongside Jamie for four years of stay in Hot Springs Village. Those days still evoke some wonderful memories.
