Blaine Boyer: Jesus Can Work It Out
They leaned in, hanging on each of Blaine Boyer's words and ignoring the rock music playing 90 minutes before the Twins faced the Detroit Tigers.
A diverse group of 20-plus students intently listened as the Twins pitcher spoke candidly and honestly about his challenges... and his blessings.
"I was awkward, and I struggled with that," Boyer said, referring to his youth and highlighting some of his unique physical features and personality traits. "But there's nothing he can't take on.
"His unconditional love covered all my mistakes."
Boyer, who has appeared in 62 games this season, has a career-best 2.36 ERA. But Boyer isn't shy about emphasizing the importance of sharing his testimony. He embraced that opportunity at Twins Faith Night in August.
Kayla Flemmons of Young Life was impressed by Gibson and Boyer.
"I am so incredibly thankful for the opportunity to invite the kids I am in relationship with from North High," said Flemmons, a staff associate. "I loved seeing kids engaged and listening to both Blaine and Kyle's story because they see them, and they think money and fame and success (all things they desire).
"And to hear the Twins players talk about how there is so much more to life than those things and that they have not given them complete happiness," she added, "but having a relationship with God and getting to share their story to fans is where they find complete happiness."
