weekend I was part of a soccer tournament put on by a
group we partner with called "Living Hope".
We had kids from the different
townships come to play, fellowship and learn of God's
love for them.
There were many different ethnic groups
(South Africa has eleven official languages). Even so,
as my friends at "Athletes in Action" say...
sports is the one language that knows no boundaries and
sees no distinctions.
It unites people and cultures, transcends
values and defies prejudice.
I am committed to using the language
of sport to communicate the most powerful message of all:
God’s passionate love for his children as communicated
through his Son, Jesus Christ.
It’s a story that’s changed
my life, given me purpose and hope, and I long to tell
this good news to others!
week we will have our last Discovery Bible Study in Ocean
View (until we return in the fall).
For us, this is what it's all about!
Here is a few quotes from our Bible study
Those that live in Ocean View say it's very difficult
to find other people you can simply talk to and share
your heart. Gossip permeates everything and many people
don't feel they even have one person they can speak to
The Discovery Bible Study is so meaningful because
it's a safe place to share your life and discover what
God is speaking to you personally.
We start every meeting with "what are you thankful
for?" and "what is your biggest need?"
Two great questions that create true community, build
lasting friendship, and lead to meaningful prayer. We
then read the Bible together and everyone shares what
stands out and what they feel they need to do as a result
of reading those verses. It's amazing how life changing
this simple format can be!
