Did you know there is an Olympic team for….Evangelism?

I happened to meet Myrna Gregory in Dallas last week at the Gaylord Texan. She was at a booth promoting the youth sports outreach group called Upward. During the conversation she told me she was about to head to Sochi Russia as part of the Olympic Pastoral Team with an organization called International Sports Chaplains. They use trading pins like the one pictured below to start conversations with people and talk with them about Jesus. What a great way to witness to people from all over the world.

As you have read in the news, conditions in Sochi are less than desired. The group has asked for specific prayers that you can see here. I didn’t see a donation page but I am sure they would welcome any financial support by contacting them via email.IMG_0017
