Last night, I invited my football team for a pizza party, and had about 40 guys come. I also showed some football videos and talked to them a little about football. However, the most exciting part for me was that I took time to share my testimony with them. I told them how football had been so important to me when I was growing up, and how that was taken away from me through an injury. I also shared some other struggles I have had in my life. I used these stories to lead up to why I am here in Costa Rica, and how I have an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. I told them I am not about "religion" because religion is full of rules and things you have to do to please God. But I told them I am all about having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I explained how they could have this same relationship and told them I am available to talk to them at anytime. Though, I did not have anyone approach me last night to be saved, I am praying that through building friendships with these guys, seeds are being planted and that some will receive Christ. Please join with me in doing this. We plan to do more of these events and have others share their testimonies with these guys.
