Bible Reading with Team Hally

By Bible, Bible Study, Prayer No Comments

During these unknown days, the one steadfast, unchanging thing for all of us is God.

“for all flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass.  The grass withers, and the flower falls, but the word of the Lord remains forever.”  1 Peter 1:24-25.

He wants us to know Him, to spend time with Him, to worship Him, and to trust His goodness so we can glorify Him to the world. He will give us love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23) when our lives are rooted and grounded in Him. Just as we spend time with those we love, if we love the Lord we should spend time with Him. One of the best ways to spend time with Jesus is by reading your Team Hally Bible.

We are currently reading I Chronicles from the Old Testament. The Bible reading for Team Hally is as simple as the following steps:
1.    Pray and ask God to reveal Himself to you in the reading
2.    Read the chapter given in the Bible Reading Plan
3.    Take notes in a journal on three to five observations you have as you read
4.    Choose a verse that meant the most to you and write it out as well as a short prayer to God about that verse
5.    Share what you read each day with someone you love, and encourage them to read also

Medical Lodge Bible Study

By Bible Study No Comments
After three years of loving on the people at the Medical Lodge of Gardner, God opened a door for a weekly Bible Study for the residents! How precious to see these sweet people hungry for God’s Word, choosing their favorite Bible verses, and bringing their own Team Hally Bibles to “read” during Bible Study.

We are currently studying the Gospel of Mark. We recently discussed Jesus getting baptized and several of the residents shared their own baptism stories.

And the King will answer them, “Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.”  Matthew 25:40

We meet each Thursday from 2:45 – 3:30 p.m. at the lodge for Bible Study.  Please contact us if you are interested in joining us to make God’s Word come to life for these residents.

KSU Students Love Team Hally Bibles!

By Bible, Bible Study No Comments

Written by Parker Yust

Giving Bibles at K-State has blown my mind the past four years!

I came to college not really sure how many students would want Bibles. God continues to amaze me at the hunger he placed in college students’ hearts. Many of the students I gave Bibles to still read them to this day and use them in their personal time with God.

One student saw me working on the Team Hally Bible study (during class…).  After class we chatted a bit and he said he didn’t have a Bible and had been wanting one. He also revealed that he struggled with anxiety and had just gone through a tough breakup. He wanted to find something more in life. The next class period, I brought him a Team Hally Bible and he thankfully received it. I told him to start reading in Mark, and if he ever wanted to meet, I would love to! The next class period I asked him if he had read the Bible and he said he had. He had started in Genesis and had lots of questions already. We have been talking before and after class each day, and I’m hoping to meet one-on-one with him soon. It’s so encouraging to see what God is doing here at KSU!

March Bible Study – You’re Invited To Join

By Bible Study No Comments

The Ancient Kings of Israel
Read along with us!

“Only fear the Lord and serve Him faithfully with all your heart.  For consider what great things He has done for you.”  I Samuel 12:24

As we read through first and second Samuel the past two months, it amazed me how the people of old would seek the Lord faithfully for awhile and then turn to their own wisdom and ways and then go back to the Lord, only to stray once again!

How often am I just like the ancient leaders and people? I earnestly seek the Lord for direction in one area of my life, and then the very next day I’m asking everyone around me what I should do and have not even waited to hear from the Lord! Matthew 6:33 reminds us to “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”

I’m praying that each of us will consider what great things the Lord has done for the ancient kings of the past and for each of us today, and seek Him first!

If you aren’t currently in God’s Word each day, Team Hally would love for you to join us as we read first Kings in March. Visit our website at TeamHally.org for more information and to follow along.

WELCOME TO 2020 WITH TEAM HALLY!

By Bible, Bible Study, Dirty Dash, Events No Comments

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:22-23

As God has revealed a brand new ministry year for Team Hally, we are so excited to see what He will do with each of us, where He will send Bibles this year, and what new opportunities to share Hally’s story with the world will arise. I’m amazed already how God has shown us some open doors this month that we didn’t expect!

Our prayer team was diligently seeking the Lord in how to share our story with the crowd at the annual Team Hally game which took place on Sunday, January 19. Who would have thought that a beanie would be an open door!

This year several Team Hally members helped distribute beanies (hats) that read “Team Hally” on one side and had a K-State powercat logo on the other. The fact that K-State allowed this to happen is almost a miracle in itself, and then God allowed it to be a very cold, windy day so when fans arrived inside the gates they really wanted a warm beanie!

We distributed all 500 beanies in about 15 minutes and had many, many fans who were disappointed they didn’t get one! However, God didn’t stop there! This was the first time that many, many fans were asking what Team Hally was and why we were giving away free beanies. Then when the Yust family attended the Lady Wildcats next home game, there were several fans wearing the beanies. Please continue to pray that some of the fans who received a Team Hally beanie will look us up and maybe even get excited about partnering with us to give out Bibles!

Some other awesome opportunities that we all can look forward to in 2020 are:

  • Delivery of Bibles to a new Spanish-speaking church in Olathe
  • Partnering with new churches for VBS in the Kansas City area, Wichita, Manhattan and Topeka, as well as many churches with whom we already partner
  • Bibles being provided to several mission trips (including Romania and possibly Rwanda)
  • 2020 Dirty Dash – September 26
  • Continued prayer partnership with K-State women’s basketball team
  • Continued Team Hally prayer ministry

Bible Study at KS Water Ski Camp

By Bible Study No Comments

In the first week of June, Macy, Zoey, and I once again traveled to Maize, KS for the annual Kansas State Water Ski Camp.

Upon our arrival, we had the amazing opportunity to share our story of Hally with quite a few new ski families. We also invited each skier to the 2 Timothy Bible Study Macy and I would be leading each day during the camp. It was amazing to me that most campers chose to attend the daily Bible Study, to read God’s Word, and to share what they got out of the reading.

We had many wonderful opportunities throughout the week to share about Christ and to pray over individuals.I’m thanking God for His faithfulness to continue to use our family to point our water ski family to Christ and to share how He gives us hope each day!  2 Timothy 3:16-17 says, “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”
