BIBLES TO OUR LOCAL COMMUNITIES
June 1 truly launched our summer distribution of Team Hally Bibles as we took 800 Bibles to Heartland traveling day camps to be given out at over 50 churches in Kansas and Missouri. The staff was so excited to be sharing the Gospel throughout the summer with the children who would be attending their camps.
In addition, over the next six weeks, we also partnered with many churches in the Kansas City area to provide another 800 Bibles to local VBS programs, backyard Bible Clubs, and camps. One local church member said that they had always wanted to provide Bibles for each of their children attending VBS but did not have the funds and that these Bibles are truly a gift from God!
BIBLES AROUND THE NATION
In addition to opening doors locally, God has also provided several opportunities in other states. Pennington Park Church in Indiana has a Backyard Bible Club and it was so exciting to see them ask for 150 Bibles in May and then a month later need another 150! God truly does exceedingly, abundantly more than we can ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20). Then further south God opened up the door in Alabama. Several Bibles were given to McDonald’s employees who had recently heard the Gospel and were beginning a 31-day Bible reading plan to explore their faith. Team Hally loves that God is an individual God who cares about a personal relationship with EACH person! Whether Team Hally gives 1000 Bibles at a big camp or a grandma sends one Bible to her grandchild in another state, God is using it.
BIBLES TO GUATEMALA
At the end of July, a group from Worden Church near Baldwin, Kansas will be headed to Guatemala for a mission trip and 6 Spanish Bibles are headed there also! We would love for you to pray over the individuals who will receive these Bibles and consider if your church has any upcoming mission trips that Team Hally could provide Bibles.
FCA ELITE BASKETBALL CAMP
On Tuesday, July 26 God is truly providing an opportunity to bring together all the things that encompass Team Hally! Bibles, Basketball, and Believers! The past few months Team Hally has been given the amazing blessing to partner with Fellowship of Christian Athletes Olathe to give Bibles at several FCA events including this upcoming elite Basketball Camp. This camp will also include Ayoka Lee and other staff/players from K-State as well as Team Hally family and friends. Truly Hally’s love for Jesus and basketball is brought together in this event. As Psalm 139:13-14 says, we are fearfully and wonderfully made and God truly gives each of us a passion and skills which are meant to be used for God’s glory. Team Hally is providing 100 Bibles this day! Please pray that the Gospel will clearly be given and that many of the young children attending the camp will receive Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior and then be obedient to make disciples of themselves (Matthew 28:19-20).
K-STATE PRAYER PARTNERS
Team Hally is super excited to be partnering once again for the 2022-2023 with the K-State Women’s Basketball Team! Our partnership with K-State began 8 years ago when Hally went to heaven simultaneously as K-State hired a new basketball coach, Jeff Mittie. Neither Coach Mittie nor the Yust family would have ever imagined what God had in store for our two organizations! The partnership started out because the Yust family wanted to honor Hally in two ways: giving Bibles and supporting Hally’s passion for basketball through a scholarship to the K-State Women’s Basketball program. This relationship has developed into a “family.” Team Hally support the team by attending a women’s basketball game, sending the team and staff cards of encouragement throughout the season, and prayer partners for each player and staff. The K-State team in turn attends our Dirty Dash, helps run muddy shoes back and forth for the runners, and some of the staff actually run the race! God has continued to grow this partnership in such an encouraging and meaningful way beyond our biggest dreams.
We are putting together the prayer partners for each of the players and staff by August 1! If you would like to be a part of this impactful ministry please message us by July 28.
Dirty Dash is a 2.5 mile obstacle challenge course benefitting Team Hally. Bring out your friends and family and get ready to run, walk, crawl, wade, slip, and slide as Dirty Dash gets you absolutely filthy. Each year we dream up and build creative obstacles, so there’s always a chance you’ll see something brand new. From start to finish this is an event you don’t want to miss! Register your family or make a donation by visiting our official Dirty Dash page.

- FCA Elite Basketball Camp-campers to hear the Gospel and begin reading their new Hally Bibles
- 2022 Dirty Dash-Gospel to be clearly shared and provision for Bibles
- K-State partnership-open doors to encourage the team spiritually!
