    Baseball - Panama / Guatemala

    Welcome to the Athlete’s in Action 2017 Baseball International Trip blog. Very exciting times are upon us as the trip’s report date is only 38 days away! Players, coaches, and staff will soon rendezvous in Miami to begin our month long journey of faith, baseball, and some more faith. Our travels will take us to Panama and Guatemala where we will have the opportunity to share the Gospel through ministry and competition for the entirety of June.

    Head Coach Snapshot


    Today I would like to highlight this year’s Head Coach Don. Coach is originally from Santa Cruz, California and attended Moorpark College and Union College. He now teaches at Monte Vista Christian School in Watsonville, California, and enjoys walking his dog, bike rides, reading sports books, and fishing. His favorite Bible verses come from Romans 12:1-5.

    Check back soon for more bios, pictures, and stories of how God is working on us and through us. We ask for you to diligently pray for every member of our team as we prepare to fulfill the great commission by means a game we all love.

      Austin Lubkemann is a Sophomore at Appalachian State University. He is a clinical exercise physiology major with aspirations of becoming a surgeon. He hopes to work within the field of sports medicine after he is no longer competing.

    "This will be my third trip in a row with Athletes in Action. I am so excited to have the opportunity to travel to Spain to be able to share my faith through my sport. I am so excited to be able to compete on a team of players that will be playing for a purpose greater than themselves! I look forward to seeing what God will do in the lives of the team as well as with the lives of the people that we meet while on tour! Please pray for our team as we prepare to travel!"|

    Isaac graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley with an associates degree. He is planning to return to school this upcoming year to get his bachelor's. He is still undecided with his major, but is interested in helping reintroduce ex-convicts into society. He played football and rubgy in high school, but joined the soccer team his sophomore year of college as a goalkeeper. He was awarded both the Most Improved Player and MVP from the WCC Championship.


    "I am extremely excited for this tour. It's a small miracle I'm even a part of the squad. I hope to grow in my soccer skills as I dive further in my faith. I hope to see my trust in God and His plans continue to develop and grow to where I finally rely on Him completely. I'm excited to play with individuals more talented than myself, and I hope to help make them better, tougher players as well."
