Scott Mendes, 1997 champion bull rider, came to Crossroads Cowboy Church September 25-27th to instruct a bull riding school. The theme of the weekend was "conquering the beast".
15 students, 1 girl included, came to learn how to properly ride a bull. Not only did they work on the physical game of the sport, but also the mental aspect. One thing that Scott Mendes preached on many occasions is that always walk with Jesus in all that you do. You can be a part of the rodeo world and still be a good Christian.
In all the school was a great success. One student was baptized on Sunday morning after Mr. Mendes preached. The impact that the school had on all the students and staff was tremendous.
"But when you give to someone in need, don't let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you." Matthew 6:3-4. (NLT)
