Bowl update

Athletics for people with disabilities by Fanie
-Visiting two kinder-gardens in Nelspruit- After the Commonwealth Games I went to visit my cousin and got invited to share my story with these young children.

-Sports Chaplaincy at the IPC European Champs- After my visit to Nelspruit I went to Whales, Swansea, to serve the athletes. Firstly on a spiritual level but also to serve in any way possible and where there was a need. Becoming all things for all men, so that some might be saved, doing it for the gospel of Jesus Christ, to be partakers in it as 1 Cor. 9 says.

Waiting to give the athletes an applause as they walk through the stadium at the opening ceremony:

Thanks to the Jones family who opened their house and allowed me to stay with them. You guys were a big blessing.

While in Whales I had the opportunity to share my testimony together with Rhys Jones (who won bronze at CWG) at 
Ainon Baptist Church in Bryncoch, Neath. The following Sunday I shared my journey at Ararat Baptist Church, Cardiff. Thanks to Helene Grant for letting me stay at your beautiful farm house in Usk and Dave Hibben for your hospitality.
