Praise the Lord! The bus was full. Nine girls and forty two guys showed up Saturday morning to travel 1 hour to the Word of Life camp for the Sports Marathon.
The girl´s team came in last place, but the girls were happy to have taken three friends with them to hear the Gospel.
The guy´s teams played hard, but were not able to win either.
Half way thru the tournament all the games were stopped and everyone gathered to hear the evangelistic message.
Joe Jordan a true evangelist preached the gospel with passion. Mário was his translator.
Sin that deceives
Sin that enslaves
Sin that scoffs
The escape from sin.
53 young people came forward to escape from their sin thru Jesus Christ. Of the 16 non beleivers that we had taken, 11 of them went forward at the call.
We might not have taken home any of theses trophies, but thank the Lord we are on the winning team. Christ in the lives of these young people is a rewarded that will never perish.
