Justin Sullivan A Life Worth Following (ALWF) is an organization formed in memory of an extraordinary young Christian Baseball player who died tragically in a car accident. Justin had an incredibly close walk with God and his story has inspired thousands to follow Christ. Five years ago individuals involved with ALWF saw that baseball was an effective "hook" to captivate young men and teach them to value the gifts that God gave them, and could be used to inspire them to live out their faith. They wondered what impact might be made if young ballplayers were immersed in a Christian culture for eight weeks during the summer. What if they could be spiritually fed and challenged, in a setting where every ballplayer commits to serving God on and off the field–valuing service, accountability, courage, humility, and outreach? At that time, the vision for the discipleship baseball team called the Ambassadors was born. Our sixth season is now behind us, thanks to contributions from hundreds of donors this past year. In six years we have played in over 300 games and shared the gospel to over 300 baseball teams. We have conducted over 80 free baseball clinics for children in which the gospel was shared. We have had over 100 of our baseball players sign college baseball scholarships (three of whom were drafted by MLB). Most importantly we have seen thousands of men, women, and children surrender their lives to Christ all over the United States, Nicaragua, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic. Today we are working diligently to sustain and grow our programs.
