Jack Ballou serves as treasurer for CrossTraining’s Board of Directors, but in addition to his service for CrossTraining and his work as a Certified Public Accountant, he has a heart for the people of Juarez, Mexico. Ballou, who resides in Arlington, Texas speaks some Spanish and has been preparing for a mission work trip across the border to build a house for a family in Juarez through Casas por Cristo. During Ballou’s recent time in Denver for CrossTraining’s Board Retreat, it occurred that there might be an opportunity to take some Colorado Rapids gear down to Juarez to give to the poor children and families served by the team working with CPC. As the idea continued to form, Timothy project: Juarez 2016 was born.
CrossTraining’s Executive Director, Brad Kenney spoke about the opportunity for Ballou to take the uniforms to Juarez,
CrossTraining has sent a lot of gear down to Juarez in the last few years. I wouldn’t be surprised if there ends up being a sister or partner club for the Rapids develop out of all the jerseys and gear we’ve sent. But joking aside, we know that these jerseys will be a special gift for people who have, literally, nothing. Many of the poor in Juarez don’t even have running water, so a brand-new, in-the-package-never-been-worn jersey will be like a Christmas gift to them. We pray that it opens their eyes to Christ, himself.
Ballou is in Juarez for this week and we encourage you to lift him and his team up in prayer as they build and serve.
