Athletes in Action's Global Sports Blog
Nov 20, 2014
Our day began with Marco Antonio, our AIA leader in Honduras engaged in a conversation with a boxer from Colombia. Marco was talking with this boxer about whether his success in the boxing ring was translating over to his life outside the ring. It quickly became obvious it wasn't. Marco then began to explain to this boxer how he could know God personally. After hearing the Gospel this boxer trusted Jesus Christ!
Our team had another opportunity today as we were invited to speak to the baseball team from Guatemala. After hearing a clear presentation of the Gospel, 14 baseball players prayed to receive Christ!
As if our day couldn't get any better, our Athletes in Action team received official accreditation as chaplains here and now we have access to all the venues.
The Lord is good! Keep praying for us as we minister to these athletes and coaches!
Adam for the team
