• This week it was confirmed that my season is officially over. After an ankle sprain in practice, doctors discovered more damage that needs to be corrected for long term health and the ability to return to the court stronger than before. This has all come very unexpected, and it hasn't been the easiest thing to process right in the heart of a season. Nevertheless, I am sure this is the correct step and I'm thankful it was revealed before anything worse happened. Above all, I am comforted by the fact that God works all things for his glory, and for the good of those who love him (Romans 8:28). The King who rules it all has brought this to pass, and I know He is my good and trustworthy Father. While this will be a time of adjustment and transition, I see the value of being sidelined for some months, if for no other reason than to remember my identity is found in Christ alone – No sport, no achievement, no earthly delight can ever offer what He's already given me in himself. My greatest prayer is that, through this process, my boast will increase to be solely in the Cross of my dear Savior. He truly is all in all. I am so thankful for the countless moments of joy I've experienced this year (one of which is depicted here). Perhaps the biggest joy (and the thing I will miss the most) has been the journey together with my teammates. Above wins and losses, ups and downs, stats and numbers, it is the group of guys that I will remember for a long time to come. Like brothers, we didn't always get along, but the common goal always kept us "together" along the way, and closer for it in the end. They will continue to pursue the goal, and though my role will be different and I may not be there to battle with them, my heart will be with theirs all the same. Thankful to Rostock and the great fans for the time I got to be a part of this season! Lastly, I'd appreciate any and all prayers from whoever took the time to read this long essay 🙂 My surgery is happening tonight at 11pm Pacific time (8am in Germany). I believe that there is power in the name of Jesus and in the prayers of the Saints, and therefore I covet them all! Thank you in advance. #ps67adventures

André Murillo’s Controversy.

Unfortunately, this lost him the scholarship he was on at Concordia University. The German-born basketball player did not lose hope. Instead, he turned to religion, and this helped him beat his drug addiction. Dave Holmquist, who was the coach at Biola College, gave him the chance to play basketball again.
