With it being #GivingTuesday, Míša & I would like to share our story of what’s going on in Prague, as we serve there. My good friend, co-worker and now pastor, Marek Tyl, has some kind words to share about us and our work in Prague! Check it out! Wanna learn about giving needs? CLICK HERE! Wanna give straight away? CLICK HERE! Thank you in advance..!
I can’t believe my last full week is almost here! Where has the last 6 months gone? It’s amazing how quick life goes by and in the midst of it you have no idea that it is actually moving that fast! (CHECK OUT THE VIDEO BELOW)
With that said, I am, rather we are, excited that I will get back to Prague and jump into life, ministry with the football team and the church but moreover we are excited about the our BIG DAY JUNE 28th! Even though we are so excited, we we are still trusting God to show up in some big ways. As I have wrote recently here on my blog, the process of raising support, or ministry partner development, has been tough. There have been so many cool things happen, so many people excited about what we are doing and excited about us BUT there have been the days where we have prayed and talked about this all and wondered “What God is doing,” and “Where and how are going to see what we need to raise come in.”
In our praying and pondering this idea came to us, that is an idea to share all over the internet about our ministry, about Prague, about Czech and more. So in my last 8 full days in America we are doing, and going for, #800in8. Our goal is to create awareness, energy and opportunities for people to join us and help us reach our minimal goal for monthly support.
So in this video I talk about what the next few days will look like and what we are hoping to share with you all. You can find us on social media here:
We will be sharing both specific and general information through the many portals of technology with as many people as possible, so that we might increase our chances of getting #800in8. Our hope is that people will respond by GIVING, INCREASING and SHARING all of, or any of the information we share. Then as people give and help us meet those needs we hope to share praises with you all as people respond!
We have a need and we are trying to be creative and faith-filled in seeing God help those needs get met.
Thank you in advance. You’re all rockstars in our book! Ready. Set. GO. #800in8
Of course, you are always invited to join us in Prague at one of our gatherings of our church plant, TaCesta, but I thought it would be fun to give you a feel of our gatherings via video. I just didn’t want to just share what our gatherings look like but I thought it would be fun for you to here from Saša, our lead pastor, as he shared a bit about my work and my role within our church. I hope you enjoy it. If you would like to help Míša, my fiancee and soon-to-be wife, continue to make a difference in Prague, Czech and Europe through our work with TaCesta, CLICK HERE, and join us today! Enjoy the video!
…being made in Prague! Here’s another video for you all!
Micah, our newest STINTer (intern), wanted to share a few words with my ministry partners and my future ministry partners about what WE do in Prague!
Micah was on a 4 week summer project in 2009, so it’s fun to hear him talk about the change between then and now within our team! It get’s me fired up! Things are happening! WE ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE!
Thank you Micah! Thank you to tall those ministry partners that partner with me to make this possible! Be a Revolution!
THANK YOU MUCH FOR ALL YOU DO!
Today I’m speaking at Emmanuel Baptist Church and I thought it would be cool to share the words of my friend, and father to one of my players, Dan Hron about OUR influence in Prague! Thank you to each ministry partner who partners with me to make this influence and, Lord-willing, life change possible! For those of you that might be watching this and want to join my team of ministry partners, learn how by clicking HERE. BE A REVOLUTION!
Finally, after more than a year I have a new episode of zhtv up! Miracles of miracles! Enjoy this, the 29th, episode of zhtv. You will get a deeper glimpse of ministry, life and football here, even if the interviews are in Czech. Thanks for all you, my ministry partner, do to make a difference with me here in Prague, Czech & Europe! Be a revolution!
Will I get to see you this summer, while I’m on the “Coming to America Tour 2011?”
Here’s the dates and the locations of the churches I’ll be speaking at (click on the church name for their website).
- July 31st, Xenia – Emmanuel Baptist Church
- August 7th, Oshkosh – RiverVally Church
- August 14th, Elkhorn – Southern Lakes Evangelical Free Church
Beyond coming out and seeing me at the church gatherings, you can also see me at a local coffee shop in those three areas – Xenia, Oshkosh and Southern Wisconsin (Lake Geneva). Times and locations will come later here on zACHhARROD.coooooooom!
Beyond, that I’m needing to raise more support, as I said in the video, so if you can help me out by connecting me with more liking-minded people, who want to make a difference here in Prague, Czech Republic and Europe, that would be great. OR if you want to host a support party that would be even better! CLICK HERE and let me know!
Thank you and BE A REVOLUTION!
That’s right lives do get changed in Prague! Believe it or not! Our Dutch colleges (I love the Dutch!) came during March and shot some footage (with cameras I wish I had) for a couple of documentaries and promotion for their summer projects as well. Here is the latest one! It’s a great video, even if you don’t understand Dutch, because some of the interviews are in English! There is one interview you NEED to hear, Jarda. If you don’t want to watch the whole video (you’ll regret not watching it all) just start at 6:40.
As Jarda said in the video, it was AIA staff and STINTers (interns) that God used to impact his life! I love his story. I love his heart for his countrymen! I agree with Jarda that, “It’s quite difficult to change it [the unbelief and atheism of Czech], but we would like to try!” I will keep trying! Thanks for joining me in the adventure!
BTW you can watch the video with English, just use the cc-button in the YouTube-player.
…I said more vids were to come, I didn’t lie! My boy, Kachna, and I finished this one this morning. Check it out! It’s for our recruiting campaign – Zkus Hrát – which means, “Try to Play!” There will be more to come, of course, all in Czech! With that said, I hope you enjoy it, even if you don’t speak Czech!
Merry Christmas from Prague! I hope you enjoy this little video postcard from a very Christmasy Prague!
For those of you who are new to zACHhARROD.com, might not have seen last year’s Christmas surprise. So I thought I would share it with you once more. My dad recently thought I was in the midst of “sneak attacking” them again with another visit, but sadly it will have to wait! At least I’m keeping them guessing!
Thanks for being you! How will you be a revolution this Christmas Eve?!?!
