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!
…I guess! This Christmas will be remembered for many things but one of them surely will be what is now resting snugly in a purple brace, yes purple (I guess they had no other colors!) – that would be my shoulder! Earlier this week I ventured north to the Great Mountains (a.k.a. Krkonoše) with the abominable snowman (see evidence below), I mean my dear friend and director, Billy Crossan, for our almost annual pre-Christmas ski trip.
They day was going great. I was enjoy the beauty and the opportunity to worship God as a got my shred on!
Then the unexpected of all unexpecteds happened! I FELL! Even though I don’t get on snow 5-6 days a week as I did when I was a kid, I can’t just go out and be a “recreational skier,” that’s not fun for me. I enjoy speed, good hard turns and occasionally flying through the air! Well, to keep the story short, I was cranking out a turn over a small roll of the hill, when my binding released on me as I left the ground. Needless to say, it’s hard to land on one ski going 30-40 mph, I tried to pull it out, but when my skiless boot barely touched the ground I went flying into the air once again, with all my weight coming down on extend arm – BOOM – first dislocation (besides fingers, which I fixed on my own!;-)). Our ski trip came to an abrupt end, as I was taken to the town’s medical center.
The doctor and his staff did an amazing job caring for me and after an x-ray they popped it back in and it looks like I should be good to go! Hopefully no surgery and just three weeks in the brace. I won’t be on snow any time soon, but I’m thankful it’s not more serious. So I guess I gave myself an early Christmas gift a purple brace, some awkward situations with just my one hand and little pain! MERRY CHRISTMAS ME!
Here’s the corrected shoulder, I can’t get the pic of the x-ray of it dislocated, but I’m happy this looks right!
Here is me celebrating the relief of having my arm back in it’s proper place!
As promised some time ago, here is a little taste of Barcelona in zhtv fashion! I hope you enjoy it and I hope it encourages you go get a passport and see this great world that God has created! Get out there in the midst of it and be a REVOLUTION for the King and His kingdom!
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?!?!
Hello to you my faithful reader out there in zACHhARROD.com land! As promised in the last entry, I said I would get you another episode of zhtv about the Velvet Revolution, which took place last month, the 17th to be exact. It was fun to be part of celebrating 20 years of freedom here in Czech. I hope you enjoy this episode of zhtv, if you’d like to see past zhtvs click here or you can use the view to the right and watch past episodes right here on zACHhARROD.com. Thanks for being you….
Here’s a video I made 5 years ago about the 15th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution. Enjoy…
Lions Win! Lions Win! Check out the newest episode of zhtv and learn about our BIG WIN! It was an amazing season and I’m so very thankful for every bit and moment of it! Stay tuned for another zhtv about the 20th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution and, hopefully, some blog posts again! But before I get to that, I’m jumping on a plane with my sister and heading to Barcelona for the weekend! I need a little change of pace and scenery. Have a great Thursday and an even better weekend!
Here’s some more footage from the game…
Lastly here is some video of our big come from behind victory over the Panthers in the regular season. If you don’t want to watch all of it, pick it up at about 2:00 into the video.
Thanks for stopping by zACHhARROD.com! Be a revolution today!
It’s a miracle! Their is blog activity at zACHhARROD.com! Here is a little zhtv love, this is what I’ve been doing over the last two months since my last post. We have our Championship game this Saturday. Please lift my each of the players up in prayer and also please also pray that I would rep Jesus well to my players, the Panthers, the fans and even the refs (which might be the biggest miracle!)! More to come. I hope to never have blog silence that long or intense again! Sorry. But hey, thanks for being you! Be a revolution today wherever you are!
Before I left Prague I wanted to put together a short video that would kind of sum up my two years back in Prague with some pictures and some random videos. I hope you enjoy this and if you are a ministry partner either in prayer and/or in financial giving please know your partnership is vital to my work and OURministry in Prague! God hasn’t just used me, but He has used US! Thank you! Thank you for two years! Can you believe it, 2 years?!?!?
Oh yeah, the music from the video is from my friend Phil Wing, and ALL the proceeds of the CD sale go to help them adopt a child from Africa! GO buy the CD and help a great cause in the midst of getting some great music!
Here is a zhtv that is a bit different from normal. When Rach and I were trying to get some interviews shot of us we got poured on. We saw rain south of us, but where we were was dry, so I thought it would be cool to time lapse the river (which was very high) while we waited for the storm (mainly thunder) to pass. Well, as you can see the rain made it’s way towards us. Pay attention to the second bridge (Bridge of Legions), beyond Charles Bridge. You see the wall of water coming and then I grab my camera and throw it in the bag. No worries, camera, Rachel and I survived by hiding under a big balloon for an hour+! Thanks for stopping by and as always be a revolution today!
The bags still have yet to be packed, the taxi comes in 3 hours and 15 minutes (4:00 am!). No fears all is well. Things are coming together well and I have had a really good day in the midst of having a ton of things to do (thanks in large part due to my sweet girlfriend! Thanks Rach!). Stress levels are low, I’m doing good and I have some growing anticipation for this summer and what God will do as I’m back for 5 weeks!
With that said, here’s a little zhtv love for you, before I head out! It’s about coming back this summer and how I would love your help in connecting with people who would want to join US in reaching this city, continent, and country! I hope you enjoy it, even in the midst of me asking for help! As always, know my support page is sitting there waiting to be visited by you or your friends! Thanks for all you do!
Heads up! First stop, Warsaw, IN and the GRENTS (a.k.a. my gangsta talk for grandparents!) and fam for the 4th, then to the Xenia/Dayton, Ohio area for a few days! Stop by to see more dates as they develop! Thanks and be a revolution!
