"Because he hasn't pitched this year right. Yeah i think a lot of it is relying on what we saw. Twenty nineteen and not really doing much beyond that. It's just really difficult to confirm things without game action especially because if you look on a lot of player development to pitch design circles in hitter improvements you could replicate one thing in practice or a non situations. Then get into the game. Issue say replicating that picture for application anything. Someone just hit a home run the background. Pretty cool replicating pitch shape. And it's just it's a little bit complex in the fact that like getting it to happen in game. It's difficult so for me. I really took the approach of. Let's look at what happened in twenty nine hundred twenty twenty markaz up the major league level pitched in i think in the south actually a game so i react to that a little bit. Take that as we're going to sell and then reality was i just adjusted down a little bit because of the injury and again that'd leaves the that leaves open the opportunity for a quick reassessment backup if again marquess can easily jump into that top tier. He comes out is throwing ninety eight plus the change of. Let's get everything. Looks good then next thing. You know It's going to be you know it's it's evens out. I think it'll work out at the end of the day but the injuries are called franklin same idea. Michael mcilveen probably another individual. That i think could have made the honorable mentions who are pretty much just the twenty three twenty four and my opinion twenty one through twenty four mcilveen coal franklin I'm sure miss some of the names but the injuries are really difficult there. Yes peak roms you mentioned. Do we talk about him a little bit. He's a guy like i. I do think that swing swing rate is something that stabilizes relatively quick and we saw that really early on that he was able to recognize spin and i think it was brooklyn where he was playing with the mets organization. So i although that's a small sample and he's not gonna have a five whatever he had. Ob p. five it'll be but the fact that he was able to lay off advanced breaking balls in things along those lines very early. I think it's pretty predictive of he was probably a little advanced for that level. So it's also one of the reasons why i really liked cuge. Huge on the floor and the defenses. Go off Calibrate center ins. I don't see too much variance in that profile yet. And you mentioned too like with co franklin and michael mcilveen those two guys that were on the preseason iteration of this list that we were really high on yet to matt dory the cubs vp of player development and he in the cubs were really item coming into this year. And i know mcilveen is a guy that they're also very high on Who i think mccain nineteen on your preseason list i believe england was about six or seven so two guys obviously impacted by injury. But would stand out to me most when when i read through your list lantis Just how many guys weren't in this in this farm system a year ago like more than half of the lists eleven guys were not in the farm system if we looked at august eighteenth of two dozen twenty eight even a couple. Other of those few others like ed. Howard borough caraway caraway's twentieth. They were drafted last year and then ended as well. You know signed internationally but then trades you you have three guys in the steel What six guys i count. Crow armstrong messed me up. Because it's two names so no seven guys three four six guys. I'm sorry six guys from the two dozen trade deadline Hall in there as well but just with a major influx of talent. How did that affect where you ranked some of the holdovers. We mentioned the injuries with maybe marquez. And and franklin and a maya but also like with christopher morale ryan jenner koellreuter. How did how did the influx of talent affect how you ranked some of the other holdovers from your preseason lists and guys that have been in the in the farm system for a little bit here. Yeah the reality was the injected a lot of talent that it is very young In that complex to able level side from job tilmann and vizcaino up at high. But that that a bit of a complex situation. I think where when guys get higher level i think you get the. Let's say the range of probabilities kind of contracts. A little bit. You start to get a better idea of where that nina optimism where maybe the outlier ceiling optimistic but on a lot of guys in the complex that ranges much bigger because they're younger number one and also because you just don't understand enough about bodies about their hits full their power projection etc. So i do think that maybe have a little bit of bias towards the younger players. Because i see a little bit more of a ceiling there so in terms of what they injected. They injected so much young talent. That i did. I think as i was going to have to put some of those guys that i thought were more predictable and eddie. Maybe this maybe a huge. It's all bump with A little bit higher per se than a morale we. We think no morale is going to be really sad. Actually later today But he's a critic. makeup on. That kid is insane from every scott. I talked. I've talked to a statue. Hasn't started by saying like the leadership for him is evident and i'm excited. See that scotty. In our producer are excited and someone's talking to be in the background leader excited about christopher may but it's it's it's really interesting. It's just a morale jensen twos another one. It's just maybe just a little bit younger. But i think it's just a mix of that. You're not exactly sure you know the ceiling. The ceiling is really for a lot of this guys a little bit higher. I just have a tends to push towards those. I ended up in those guys ahead but again. I don't think there's really an issue. There's really not too much. You know waffling between Anything there's a case where else should be ten. There was a case. Any of those guys johnston. Some of the who've been around should be higher. I i'm open to hearing those arguments. Tweet me at twitter. I shot that there in terms of being willing to be pepper by questions. And i'm happy to talk through any of my rights as i thought through all and talk to people about them so it's it's a thorough list. Even if you disagree. I'd like to think so As you were talking to people in the scouts you mentioned that you know in running through your rolodex. Although i don't think those are really around anymore but just your digital rolodex. And i'm talking to people in breakdown video and stuff you're yourself and then putting together lists what was most surprising to what head you think like. Oh wow i didn't know this about you know hearing from moscow. We're talking to a guy. Like i know we talked after max your conversation with In-depth he goes in analytics. But just in general putting together kind of the twenty four including the honorable mentions what stood out to you most as surprising. The macro seem is that young talent is really really good. And i think a lot of these mattress at the major league leather going to slow down. specifically related to how hard guys hitting balls how throw how hard guys are throwing the pitch movement. How incredible it is. You're seeing like like otani trianon sliders. That are just going insane. I don't really think that's going to slow down. Based on my interactions. Because the guys that hurt. Like the max baynes and high like their understanding of what they need to do to get better is so good. And i think that that's been one of the the hidden things player development over the last years is like we're getting much better at understanding how to make is better how to take objective actions. Make them better. Which is extremely important. I think that that objective or subjective nature of like we dated to back this up versus like. I think this is good and i think this will help is is a contrast in player development. I think that a lot of trying to really cut out as much as possible. Blend is camp purely rely on the data. And i'll stand by that. And i imagine that the best relations in baseball by that as well so it's it's just evident that a lot of these guys are extremely talented and have a really good understanding of what's going on at the major league level player development. I think that really helps them in terms of in terms of their future projection..

"Maybe mid two thousand twenty two can really hit. If he stays healthy he might move quicker. But i also see unfortunately where we make sense from the cubs from business standpoint. Say hey we're gonna we're gonna wait till twenty twenty three. I mean not solvable. I mean kris bryant could come up. You've used aaa could been up in midseason that year and been in the big leagues but it didn't make sense from a business yet. Veggie mentioned that about brennan to that just like chicago is gonna love him. I had the opportunity just to talk to him for the first time in spring training this year in One thing that stands out it almost kind sounds weird but like his smile. It's like it radiates. You know in like it's very kind of infectious Interest just kinda funny. It was introducing myself so many other writers. And here's brennan to everybody. We're like yeah. We know aspect in the system but no he was absolutely fantastic. Great first impression But also on some of these other guys have been in the cup system we've mentioned before marquez and cold franklin have been sidelined by injuries all year in all fans no marquez. A big left yet. There was one hundred plus miles. Now were cold. Franklin somebody that cubs have been very high on internally for the last year or so but just affect that they haven't been able to pitch or get off amount in games this year obviously last year as well. How does that affect their stock. Jim moving forward. It's a good question. Because i mean obviously a part pitching his health You know. I think the good news on those guys look at it as glass half empty glass full glass half empty. I mean those two pitching prospects along without soleil coming into the year and look. I mean the reason. The cubs didn't win as much as we thought they would. After two thousand sixteen is developed pitching so these guys were were were hugely important and they still are. Not the good news is neither one is happen. Like i think they're throwing like when i talked to the country silly. You guys are part of the same thing. I the anticipation is that we may not see. I think the cubs air being very cautious when you especially coming off a year nobody really through lot of game innings or simulated game innings but. I think we'll see him. In the instructional league in the arizona fall league. I think riley thompsons in the same boat. None michael mcilveen another guy who they liked the sheer none. Those guys is sideline to the point where they're shut down for the year or they have to have surgery. We may see all four of them may just might not be until you know october in instructional league or they're on a folly but it you know i think the nature pitching is you want them playing. But i think it's less harmful than if you have a hitter losing a full year of at bats. Just because i think it's hard to make up the at bats you're oversimplifying but stuff stuff. You know what i mean really marquess can hit a hundred and you can have a hammer breaking ball. He was so good at the end of two thousand nineteen assuming he's healthy if he comes back in twenty twenty two with that stuff.

"I says what's Rene Young's contract situation read more than just no compete. I don't know what her contract situation is. Today's our last day. I strongly suspect. I don't know for sure. I think he's got a no compete I. Don't think she does I I. Don't know that one hundred percent but. We may be seeing or anywhere anytime. She put it that way. Well I mean you know they don't a lot of these deals I mean. I could see it absolutely having Indo compete for a while or cool off period or something like that. I can absolutely could too but I don't think it does. Again regardless I mean I know I know everybody's got this I there are there are a lot of people having now actually the ability to have some time on her hands I mean there's about a zillion things woman could do. So I know there are a lot of people that wanted to rush to get the W. but I don't. I don't know if that's necessarily in the plans really at all. Well. I would be the least bit surprised if we saw her there sooner rather than later. I mean her husband's going there. They just they go together and go back home together and it's one day a week, and actually it's usually going to be one day every two weeks so. We'll see what happens everybody you never know look. Okay, the with the pandemic to mean there's their ability to work remotely and work from home and have that ability to do that too I mean it can open options for you as well. So you know again, you know she she. Is should be in demand for sped shows. The permeate the airwaves you know to have a new. Base out there with you know name appeal with some some actual value already you know going on with her, you know quality something somebody would on the look into. For says, can you imagine having Pat McAfee mcilveen developmental for six months? Can you imagine how good and Polish he could get course they would teach them how to wrestle their way. That's what they would do. So I think I mean, this isn't the nice way. Possible seeing what I saw to Pat McAfee not having spent a lot of time in Developmental I. Think I'd rather send him back to rip. You know he needs though you're everybody needs this. This is not just this is not just the the me developmental guys but I mean people. A as well. Then he'd. Chances to work. Like the days to the days of getting out there and working forty hours a week or done. There ever coming back in wwe. But people need to watch it and you don't mind people not being very good. Just getting ring time than watch it, but it's not on national. TV. And like twelve thirteen, fourteen matches scheduled for dark. It's just a way to get people ring time. Get Him ring time get him ringtone need ring time and pad McAfee like if he's really going to do this the guy needs ring time no matter how good he was in his match with Adam Cole the guy needs ring time everybody needs ring time more than just like practicing matches and the performance center with your buddies going over spots fifty times. The need to work live in the fans a lot. And the businesses change so. Eight of US association with the indies or a they have got to figure out a way where TV is Wednesday Thursday a Lotta promotions began to run an obvious. You know it's like their. Division and they're going to have you know, Lisa good short band aid put on that with Thunder Rosa. Coming in I. think that's great and her, and she'd they'll be fantastic having a presence there is going. To. Be Good but you know the women's divisions. Great you know sign that you know these people do need to a lot more. It's not their fault that they're not ready for TV or not ready for prime time and. Look at look at Alan. Angels, in that whole crew, you know imagine if they reynolds and Sova if they were working nightly night after night after night, you know. Over an entire weekend and then they come back on Wednesday again how much better it often would be, and you know hopefully the indies can come back and hopefully Awa can figure out a way where they can take advantage of that and continue to get people like Nihilo. Rosa. Great example of. Watching the MVP versus. Crews made for the bell here to the Thunderdome. And IOS really weird I didn't mention about the Thunderdome is. There the Thunderdome isn't. Really. A dome. It's like a it's like a semi. Circle. And over by the hard cam, there is no thunderdome. So like every now and then somebody will be out of the ring or the cameraman. We'll get shot right there. There's nobody over there. Why couldn't they just extend that thing in a giant, dome? I because the how much are they spending all this stuff? Anyway new their. Way. To. Did you see their profit this past quarter I'm sure they could afford to finish the circle at when you can see it now when they're showing nothing in the background there. It's a person year says I cannot. Believe my eyes when I watched brody just squash cody and then how the dark order completely massacred the nightmare family last year I hated the Dr Quarter after Saturday they are my favorite stable in wrestling Brodie. Lee is a phenomenal he'll knows. At a get the right type of heat. Well I, mean I mentioned this last night. There were two ways cody story ends. A. Mystery opponent who beats him. or he just gets so worn down that this happens and they. Chose this way and I watched it and I loved it. I mean, it didn't hurt cody. If anything it just made brody look like just this monster and cody dude how much does it hurt cody guy who was there every single solitary get bro You over and then the angle afterwards I thought the whole. Thing was great. Loved it simple. So simple answer rocky story and he goes in there against battered he gets beaten we'll be able to come back now from this you know how's he going to come back and defend his his manager his coaches honor with our Anderson. Getting laid out there was a real surprise. You know putting the hands on our Anderson there at the NFL is a great way to ratchet up what we had just seen. You know how do you how do you is that cake well, they? Certainly, did it right there I mean that was very impressive way to go off with that show and it's a very impressive way to finally really give you know that whole group via now it feels like you know a main event group it feels lake you know somebody legitimate that I should be paying attention to and. Will see how it works with cody immediate. Looked you know this is sports here's where the athleticism when you throw out the sporting aspect of pro wrestling when you get rid of it, that's where you lose stuff like this. And you lose that value I. Mean This was treated as sport. This guy was overwhelmed..

"We're very worried about it and what I heard was the partnership between the state and locals and FEMA has been tremendous on this now that they're getting what they need at the state level. But I absolutely want to continue the communication, with love to hear from your office. If there are opportunities to improve that thank you. We'll continue to walk through that famous cooperation has been excellent. And we appreciate that continued engagement there. I need to ask you just a couple of quick things. One is on the coast guard process. You and I've talked briefly before that, as far as interdiction on the water, the coastguard process renovations, and customs and border patrol have two different structures to do interdiction, and coastguard processes much longer than customs and border patrol and I've always wondered within DHS while we have two entities both on the water one has one process. One has another and other coast guard processes a much much longer process, and I'd like to be able to take a look again, in detail help our coast guard folks, I do faster interdiction as the customs and border patrol does currently as well. There's also some nonlethal resources that customs and border patrol have when they're on the water that goes guard does not have access to, and it'd be helpful to be able to help them both those interests on the water to be able to get that level of engagement interdiction faster. Let me shift a little bit to cybersecurity. What did in the twenty eighteen election was pretty remarkable and your engagement in lean in a lot of threats? Lot of lessons learned from twenty sixteen very different GHS engagement in twenty eighteen I know you're saying engaged to ask you about that house. The engagement for election security, and knowing that every federal agency looks to you to be able to help them with cybersecurity for that entity. How's that going as far as resource was? Yeah. So this is something I've been working on multiple times a week in, in my six weeks is acting but it's also an area where I have high confidence in Chris Krebs and the leadership of our team. I think they have a great strategy to capitalize on the success is a momentum from eighteen for the twenty twenty election. Protect twenty twenty hour calling it. They wanna get to all eight eight hundred jurisdictions in the country, not just all fifty states. But all the jurisdictions that are overseeing elections, and make sure that they have the right systems in place that if they want scanning or penetration testing, we can do that in advance and help them. Repair in really. I think the relationships and the communication is robust. We built a lot of trust from sixteen to eighteen enter partnerships with state and local. So I feel very good about the election security strategy in terms of the agency on the federal network side. We do have good buying on our our protections at gateway Einstein system and others. We need to continue to work on that talking with this team, their top three priorities are getting better at what they already do federal networks election security, and soft targets. And then, of course, working supply chain issues where we see components being brought in supply chains and could have on abilities in obviously industrial control systems. That's a huge challenge for cyber can have the biggest impact everything from powered to pipeline. So we're going to stay on top of it across those areas. Please do. Kevin, thanks for all your work on this. Senator James Langford, and Kevin mcilveen acting homeland security secretary, Senate religion. Thank you. Thank you for bringing important hearing here today. And I wanna thank you for your service through for so many years. It's really important, and your knowledge is, is great and compassion, as well. And so I want to ask a couple questions on family separation a couple of weeks ago, my colleague, congressman carbohydrate, and I sent a letter about misleading information. We receive last year, when we visited the border, I haven't yet received a response from your department, but maybe you could provide me with some answers recent news reports indicate the DHS, and HHS officials and exchange emails and June twenty third twenty eighteen acknowledging that the departments, did not have necessary information to reunite migrant children with their families. And those Email exchanges VHS HHS admitted. And I'm going to quote here in short. No, we do not have any linkages from parents to children. We have a list of parent alien numbers, but no way to link them to children and cloud. And that same day DHS issued a fact sheet, claiming the department knew the location of all children in custody at the department had a process in place for the families to know the location for the children and had a central database, you can access and update, so just two days after that congressman Carbajal, and I enter your twenty fifth travel to the border to torture Neo the unaccompanied minor facility. We were falsely told by leadership, and those DHS and HHS facilities departments had the necessary information to reunite the families. So my question I'm hoping to ask Mr. acting secretary taking a step back. How, how could you or how would you explain the discrepancy between the private emails exchange between the government officials and the fact sheet published to the public the same day? Thank you for the question. Senator, I'll do my best to explain it here. And then make sure that we have an appropriate robust response to your inquiry, so the there are five different components involved, primarily in dealing with with immigration, three agencies within health and human services, aren't our informative Justice, you. I are all five manage different IT systems there. Let's start with that. That's the challenge on April nineteenth twenty eighteen at the request of HHS implemented, in adjustment to system to be able to capture parent-child relationships more explicitly in our data at the border now. That that's the system. It's not necessarily available directly to all ages personnel as of June twenty eighteen. So when, when you're seeing an Email like that, and I would want, I'm giving you a broad answer not answering what the individuals who are sending an Email Miller, thinking or talking to. Specifically. But my interpretation of that, is that having to go to a list of parent alien numbers means that they have to go to a different system. They can't automatically see the Lincoln ges between the parent and child and the two different systems. They have a lack of communication entering agency a lack of system, inter in integration interagency, I think communication was very good. And I wanna come in on the reintegration in a second. But first, we're gonna fix this. It's my one of my priorities as acting secretary to have a unified, immigration portal that allows that data to connect and be integrated across agencies. That that's, that's doable. We did it for forty seven departments and agencies for trade data, when I was the deputy Commissioner TV and the automated commercial environment called a single window. We can we can improve this process, and certainly help ensure relationships are captured between people arriving at the border. So that's a priority. The reason I know that I can I can say with confidence that the data was captured. And the intent of what was said publicly about our systems. I was born out is the reunification actually happened pretty rapidly. And the reason vacations were broadly successful by HHS, working with ice NTV data on mad of the children that are still separated from their families. And we know there are still quite a few out comedy in your estimate. How many cases still lacked the information necessary for reunification and could you provide that information to us, that's being provided by health and human services in, I think by weekly filings to the Michelle court, the exact status of that. And I would refer you for an official answer to that data into HHS my understanding is that every single child has an identified parent relationship at this point, we'll refer to that. And I have another couple of things in my estimation. Of course, your department has a lot of work to. Due to regain the public trust including mine. And so as you leave the department forward, well, you personally commit to all of us to act with really respond to the committee, that your department won't mislead us. Again in the way, we were misled last year when I visited the border, no matter what the severity of issues are at hand. So law enforcement depends on public trust. That is a fundamental requirement to carry out our mission and carry out our jobs. I will ensure that as long as I'm acting. We're going to do our level. Best to explain what's happening to congress to the American people on all aspects of our mission. Thank you. I have one last question quickly on. Tammy separation and a training that you're providing for the officers determine or not, whether families are falling into the criteria of meeting to be separated, what you're going to do going forward. You said, you have a lack of bedspace lack of detention space. What are your plans going forward to train, your officers to take care with these families when they're going through this? So thank you for the question. And so this case where a child and apparent are separated now is extraordinarily rare. It's done for the safety of the child. If there's a serious criminal violation in indication that the parent presents, a risk to that child, if there's a communicable disease issue for us as a parent with a child, they need to care. It's happening one two, three times a day out of up to three thousand families arriving. So I just want to be very clear. It's very rare situation, and it's got defined criteria that we've by policy mandated for. Our personnel in the field in accordance with miss L quarter and the president's executive order from June twentieth of last year. So extraordinarily rare in terms of, of the process for doing that. I think there's an opportunity with our civil rights until the liberties office to look across our department. And see if we can ensure that we're doing it, consistently four sepia rice, for instance, and we're taking all steps to consider the care of the child. The middle concerns child might have and that scenario and explain it effectively. So I think there's an opportunity there. I'd like to work on. Thank you. Senator cinema. Thank you. Mr Chairman, our nation faces a crisis along the southern border and I'm working with local leaders in Arizona, my colleagues in congress and the administration to stop the flow of migrants to the southern border and ensure the fair and humane treatment of migrants who do come this situation on the ground with our communities NGOs, and our Boorda workforces not sustainable. So we must work together to find bipartisan common sense solutions acting secretary graduate here today. I look forward to our discussion. The lack of transportation resources to manage the flow of migrants is a serious problem in Arizona. We need help transporting migrants between interception detention facilities, and ice and getting migrants to NGOs to facilitate for their transportation..

"But you also have sports fields. We find out whatever the people love, their whatever sport is their sport of choice. And then we create a place for children youth and adults to come and do what they love that sport. And while they're there they hear about the one that loves them. Imagine that sports soccer. A lot isn't it and the country of Africa? It is we're we're in two different countries on the continent of Africa were also in Haiti in one of those countries, we built the highest elevation running track in the world because the community enjoys running but all of the centers, so far I have a major soccer component because that's the sport of choice. All right. What is the allegation of that highest track? Man. I'm I'm bad with the the numbers the details that it's high. Let's say higher than Denver for sure. Yeah. Would be I guess wouldn't it? I want to go back now, Mike, and we'll come back to these centers. We'll come back your ministry in Africa. But I'm gonna get started on your background because you have an interesting one in want you to go back to the age fourteen. And no you've told his story before and it's not it's not a a real positive one. But the way that it turned out. I think very much is at the age of fourteen you had a surfing accident. Could you talk about that a little bit? Yeah. You know, backing up just a little bit growing up. I I really if you were to ask me what my goals were. I would've said accolades and asset, right? I mean fame and fortune and really just was pretty set on my plan for my life play ball love playing ball and really just became an idol for me. It took an improper place in my heart. It just consumed me. And so on Tober ninth. Nineteen ninety six I was wrestling with this kind of consumption for a game in my father challenged me. The life wouldn't about a game. There was a higher purpose, and I should sell out to that. And so I was resting that tension, and I went down to the beach, and there were some big waves, and I went running down the beach, and I dove into this giant wave it. When I hit the water something happened. It was like shock. Just rush through my spine knew something was wrong. I didn't know what instinctively I knew lay still the next way that rolled the ogre. I remember rolling over. And I could see the surface I could see air when I tried to get up. My body went work panic race through my veins here. I am underwater tries I might I can't get the surface in a last ditch effort. Put my lips together. Couldn't reach sucked water passed out. I was caught in a long shore. Current I was pulled under down. My brother divan didn't think anything was wrong went to get football made his way down to where I n eventually. But when he looked he couldn't see me he thought. Maybe I was playing jokes. So we begin to search in the bushes. And and to make a long story short, my family, eventually came down and found my brother fantasy frantically searching for me. And they asked the mate that about five to seven minutes past the time I dove in time my family sold a stranger about one hundred fifty yards down the beach flack pool of water. And he was raising the hand on a body. My mom, she hit the beach and begin to screen. God don't take my son father ran down. And pulled me out of the surf laid me up on the beach begin to do CPR. I really at nine one one story ensued from there. I was ultimately put it helicopter lifeline Tampa General Hospital. I don't remember much of the first week. But when I came to I was in ICU, I'd shattered four vertebrae in my neck, and I was totally quadriplegic. Was her chance. Mike, you could drown certainly. Yes. Yeah. Technically, I did when at no heartbeat. No polls. Nobody functions that flatlined. So technically clinically. I was dead. But I had my spirit had left. My body. Do you know what happened? Did you? Did you hit the the water or the? Would you hit the you know that that caused the paralysis? Yeah. Lot of mystery around that. But at the end of the day, they believed that the fair of the wave, and they wave at the the most of my body kind of coming in full tilt is just a freak accident. Yeah. I've I've read about those before it's like hitting a wall, right? Like hitting a brick wall sometimes hit water, and so my head just push back into my by. And there was a compression fracture. So too shattered in my my cervical cord swelled. And so I was rendered a total quadriplegic immediately. You're fourteen years of age this time, Mike when you look back and think about the the first memories of the hospital, and realizing your physical condition you remember what the what you were thinking what was going through head back. Then. Yeah. Initially of hopelessness. I remember just kind of looking out my window or Saint Pete. I was in Tampa General Hospital just thinking my life is going to be live for feeding to. I'm totally quadriplegic on life support in and really a sense initially of I wish I wish I did make it overwhelmed with the pain that was experiencing physically emotionally in broken. Parents worst nightmare. Maybe not the worst. But close to it when their child goes through something like you went through. How'd your parents handle all this at that time? I my parents were so thankful that I that. I was brought back to white. They really thought they lost me from there. Destroy troopers. They always shouldered a big load. Didn't let us know how much they carried. I've learned more than adult. How taxing that was? But they they did everything they could to make sure I had the love and the care that I needed, and I can never repay them. But they did go through a lot. We'll talk about the next segment, but you obviously got better. And it was a long process was it not of rehab to get any kind of physical activity back. Yes, sir. Was that like, yeah, you know. So in stays is of what happened was initially. I was at a total budget Japan. I see you, and I was in a halo vest for for about three months. I was in the hospital about a month and a half there in. So there's just you enter this this rigorous process of physical therapy occupational, the I mean, it's just it's a everyday just trying to see if if they can get any any functionality possible to attend him. So initially, I couldn't move anything on my body, and I couldn't even touch my face. So the first thing I could move my body was actually my right big toe into that. That was the very first thing I could move in the hospital. Mazing stuff. We're talking to Michael mcilveen. He is the founder and CEO vapor ministries, and at the age of fourteen surfing accidents off the coast of Florida left him on life support two months in a hospital years of rehab is well, but the years of rehab turned into something extraordinary later on in his life and college and after that one of the mission to Africa, and that that trip completely changed his life and the direction of it. We're gonna talk about that. That's what was the motivation behind vapor ministries. We're talking to Michael.

"The founder and CEO vapor ministries quickly recap at the age of fourteen mica mcilveen suffered a in. It was a surfing accident and became a quadriplegic and working through years of physical therapy. Got the point where he could use his legs became a soccer player soccer player in college and didn't inner city ministries through soccer clinics and college, and then he's talking about the end that last segment taking a trip to Africa. And that was in January of two thousand five believe, Mike, and you you describe there right before went to the break, you went over there, and you stayed and you saw was happening in this place. And it changed your life. Did it not? So statistically, there's an estimated one point three billion human beings surviving in extreme poverty, which means they're living on less than one dollar and twenty five cents a day. So I had never seen that type of poverty. I was aware of inner city, poverty, which is very serious and needs to be dealt with your for sure. But I'd never seen an environment where there are no safety. Nets. The bottom is literally the end, I'm so here, I was in over three hundred thousand people in in fall in meeting people in in building the Latian ship with some of the most amazing beautiful people that had struggled that I'll never be able to fully capture, but you'd have rows and rows of ten shanties ten by ten twelve fourteen people living in meal stall, I went to a lady's house named Belmont. There was twelve people sleeping in her home being tire home with maybe twelve by fourteen dirt floor. I looked at all. And I asked her I said Boma, how do you even do sweep here? She inherited her. Others kids because brother had died of aids and another sibling died, and so she said, I take the kids and two of them probably three of them sleep with my husband, and I miss soya bed. Then she pointed to this rickety table sitting across the dirt floor, and she said three of the kids lay across this table each night, then she pointed over to this rickety bench. There was a lining the ten side. And she said the rest sleep there. Then we rotate because the best night's sleep is the bed, and I remember just looking at Boma and walking I've her home into this that the swamp of three hundred thousand in a month story after story statistics took on names and faces poverty became personal. I'd I'd heard in God's word his heart for the ports. And now a sudden all this theory, it became my problem. And I knew just just wrestling through what I was seeing in in working through. Like, why am I? I still hear it. In my here in this law that my still here on planet earth because God was wanting to do something. And and just wrestling in that tension God really began to birth vision. And I I knew coming back from that one month experience in slow I knew that I was going to spend the rest of my life trying to forget what I saw or spend the rest of my life trying to do something about it. And just wrestling that tension, either leave God just burst this vision that we now call for ministry. He got back to states that experience and Mike the so incredibly powerful than my family. I took a trip to the Haiti and it was life changing. But but nothing like that. We've we spent a couple of days at a nice little hotel, and then went to the orphanage. But when you came back the states, what was the game plan wouldn't when God told you. Hey, this is what you're gonna spend the rest of your life doing. This is my plan for you. What what was the game plan? What was the action plan after that? Great. Great question today. There's a lot of sophistication in the ministry. We have over four hundred eighty staff, and it's great strategy at that point in time for me. It was all birding all heart a sense of collie. And and honestly what I actually did. I came back. I dropped out of school, and I moved into my car. So I I lived in my car for eight months and during that period got actually granted us, a nonprofit, we applied for nonprofit, we assembled aboard crystallized division. And then eight months later, I was actually living in Africa trying to execute on this idea that got put in my head. You were serious about this. She started living in your car for eight months. Traveled all around the country sharing with anybody who would listen in. And and there weren't a lot of takers back then but thousand miles speaking little churches, or simply the school things anybody who would who would be open to hearing about the vision. It was Mike MAC at hotmail dot com to have a web page. We didn't have glaciers and and low and behold, God provided some resources, and and so I moved to attack. We partnered with an entity there that we were able to work on about eight acres of land. We now by property all of our centers winning a land lease there, and the division was was was really threefold one to develop a group of local indigenous people that had a heart to serve their people and really raise them up and sect him up to be the change agent. So we wanted to to make disciples and really invest in more. Local leaders who would in turn be the face of the ministry. The second thing was we had to oversee the physical building of the center, and in the third once we had the physical assets in the human resource in place that now it was time to set up your rate and components and systems that would guide the day in and day out structure, the ministry, so low and behold after one year focusing on those three things we had a team about fifty Kenyans we open to the community and on opening day. We had over two thousand people show up to three hundred fifty spots in sports leagues. And we got off the down running absolutely amazing mica that a quick question here. Those loving parents you described earlier in the first segment when you had your accident. What they think about you living your car for eight months and then going moving Africa. Well, I called my dad, and and and told my dad, I said, I think I think I I think what God wants me to do me a couple questions to just to get me thinking that I understand what I was getting into it before we got to he said son, we will support whatever you want you to do you have our blessing until my parents have been there with me the entire way wherever a point when you first started trying to get this ministry together that you got discouraged thought. Maybe this something I'm supposed to be doing. This is a pipe dream. Did you ever have that moment? Oh, man. I can't tell you one moment. I'll share with you. I was actually hit. We'd raise some capital, I moved Africa. We were we were diving in the trenches. I was in every day. I lived on less eight on a dollar fifty a day limited to Kenyans on the edge of his lung. Didn't they show for years? So it was very incarnation. And I remember certain point where I was losing side of the vision from the standpoint of like, it was it was so clear in my mind. But it was like I started thinking maybe it wasn't gonna happen in one morning. I I was looking over the portion of the dump that we were actually trying to reclaim 'cause the center is literally built on top of a form of dunk, and I looked out there. And and I I couldn't see it, and it broke my heart and so bottom line. I just started saying about six AM and just said God help me and about an hour later, division return and the descript guys and gals have been pouring into asked him. I said, hey, sit down with me, they looked out. And I said, what do you see? They say we see this the dump and I said, no, no coys rise, and they close their eyes. And I said there's a beautiful complex centers in. You all are the leaders that are serving the people, and they they open their eyes. What do you see? And they said feel that no close in the closer is. And I said there's thousands of people that were ministering to every day. And so it was so cool is it knows low times where all the news site of the possibility right that the potential guy would always find a way to crack through and those that have chosen to come alongside with me up, and we would just find a way of the encouraging new CHAI. And ultimately now today, we see exactly that amazing. We have over three hundred forty Haitian and Kenyon in totally staff in bay or the change agents. They're the ones that are transforming their communities. Just like the vision we saw. Micromax vein is is an amazing American. He's the founder CEO vapor ministries stories and incredible one and we'll go to break. We'll come back in this. Final segment, and we'll talk about the impact they're having an Africa with the center he is talking about. And I think there are other guests can appreciate where he has been. We had a guest on Susie Crocker a few weeks back who went on her own to Haiti found herself in the slums a port a prince in the middle of the night and not knowing what to do and ended up with a seven-year-old boy taking her to place of shelter. I think Mike can probably appreciate that story as well. We'll take a break. We'll come back with final segment with Michael mcilveen. He's a founder CEOs may for ministries will do that..
