I’m just home from Sydney and the World Masters Games went well. Just thought I’d send you a follow up report. In the long line waiting for over five hours for Registration, I managed to put the time to good use by sharing Jesus with a Malaysian badminton player, a younger Australian swimmer, members of a USA women’s soccer team and a New Zealand netball team. During the three hour wait at the marshalling of athletes for the Opening Ceremony, I put the time to good use and was able to share the Good News with Lebanese weightlifters, some of the volunteer staff, other swimmers, USA shooters, and an Australian men’s soccer team.
The Games opening ceremony was long, tiring and a bit stretched out – with 30,000 athletes. However I was able to share the Lord with so many needy people and had the privilege of leading many to Jesus. That’s what this is all about.
Some of the athletes included an 85 year old fellow competitor who he met on the board walk leaving the pool who gave his life to Jesus Christ after some one to one evangelism in the change room.
Another was a fellow swimmer while chatting at the pool after the event, congratulating him on his swim. This man gave his life to Jesus Christ too. At the coffee shop in the Aquatic Centre I met and shared Jesus with three Ukranian athletes who smiled at my attempt to share the gospel in Russian.
