#115 Anger Turns to Surrender: One Man’s Journey To Major League Baseball – Tim Fortugno

Before his was a major league baseball pitcher, Tim Fortugno was the angry son of a single mom and then an abusive stepfather.  He struggled with poor choices like stealing, drugs and alcohol abuse that led him to trouble with the law and a juvenile home.  Tim had thoughts of suicide and murderous rage for his stepfather, but God protected him.  Tim was rejected when at 16 his mom told the court that she no longer wanted him at home.  

Tim was put into a Christian foster home and at 17 he gave his life to the Lord.  At 21 he came to California, met his wife and was brought back to his love of baseball.   Tim was pitching and no longer checked in with the Lord.  He hurt his arm and entered a very dark time, until he came back to God.Tim Fortugno

After years in the minors, Tim found himself pitching for the Angels in Anaheim as a 30 year old rookie.  Now Tim works as a scout for major league teams.

This is Tim Fortugno’s Testimony…

#114 Astrophysicist Helps Spread the Gospel Through Science and Reminds Us That There is Nowhere You Can Go Where God Won’t Love You – Dr. Jeff Zweerink

As parents, we all strive to ensure when our children reach a pivotal crossroad, they listen to the words that we’ve taught them, but most importantly, that they listen to the Lord. Dr. Jeff Zweerink is an astrophysicist and Research Scholar for Reasons to Believe. Jeff grew up in an upstanding Christian family in a small Midwestern town in Missouri, and like many of us do, he found himself moving down a sinful path to a place of concealment.

While he did practice Christianity, it wasn’t until his ways were exposed that he truly found a foundation for his faith. His parent’s, while disappointed, left faithful words of encouragement and love to him that would prove to be a pivotal point in his Christian Life.

Today Jeff dedicates his life to helping others understand the correlation between Christianity and Science. Like his other colleagues from Reasons to Believe, he uses scientific discoveries as a tool to prove Christian truths, rather than contradict them. He also works with 3rd-5th grade level children, teaching them how to fine tune their basic moral compass, and helping them grow into better Christian adults.

“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”
Romans 8:1

#113 God Delivered Him to the Ark of Noah Foundation, and Through the Lord, He Delivers Hope to Others – David Rivera

 

“God, Family, Career.”

This is the order in which David Rivera listed his priorities during perhaps the most pivotal job interview of his life. God called to him and asked him to be honest, and that all pieces would fall into place thereafter, and they did. David has enjoyed a beautiful life as a Christian, but he hasn’t always walked with the Lord.

Today his life is immersed in an organization many of us have seen or read about in the last six months, the Ark of Noah Foundation. This organization, with David as it’s President, is working to bring a full-scale replica of Noah’s Ark from the Netherlands to Brazil. The Ark is an interactive, informative, cultural Biblical museum and event center. The Ark of Noah will provide a Judeo-Christian Bible based experience for young and old in the underprivileged communities around Brazil, and they need our help to make it happen.

Please help them and donate. Every dollar counts. Visit their website and facebook page so you can play a part in this incredible movement.
