Let it Rain... Networks that is.

Yesterday, Jason and I met with Chris from Rain Networks to discuss redesigning our website. Chris seems to know what we are looking for, and we are excited to see what he comes up with for our interactive web flier. Please stay tuned.

Scion Xb Please

M.A.D. Skates & Rec Center is looking for someone to graciously donate a 2004 -2006 Scion Xb in good condition. Any light color would work, but our preference is white. Manual or automatic will be fine. M.A.D. Skates is a 501 C3 corporation.

What will we do with it?
1) Carry small ramps and rails to various outdoor skate parks and church facilities to spread the word about Jesus Christ and M.A.D. Skates. Mini-Mobile Ministry!
2) Put our graphics on it and drive it around the area advertising for M.A.D. Skates and making our name and logo recognizable. It would be taken to skate boarding and youth events as well.

**If the donor so chooses, we would gladly put "donated by xyz" on the vehicle.

Please contact me (Brett Elizabeth Spore) at brett@madskates.com if you are interested in donating a Scion Xb to expand our outreach. Thank you.

Uganda Skateboard Union's Video Preview

As some of you may know by either knowing me or reading my other blogs, half of my heart is always in Africa. Recently Christian Skaters sent out their email update and included a link to this video.

For anyone who thinks "We can't afford a skate park here." Watch this.
For anyone who thinks "Youth can't put something like a skate park together." Watch this.
For anyone who has given up on their dream. Watch this.


May God bless you all and may He use this video to light a fire in you for whatever it is He has called you to do.

Remember: Nothing is impossible with God.

10% from the board

On Monday, June 2nd, MAD Skates held the quarterly board meeting. At that time, we discussed a new idea of setting aside 10% of all income and received donations. That 10% will be used to support other skate ministries, missions, etc. This is our way of passing on what God has given us to help others reach others.

Thank you for your continued support. A little goes a long way in God's kingdom.
