“More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die.” Romans 5:3-7
An Ironman Triathlon consists of a 2.4mile swim, a 112mile bike ride and a 26 mile run…WITHOUT a break! Most Ironman events have a strict time limit of 17 hours to complete the race. All competitors must complete the triathlon by 12midnight, Meaning, if they finish 1second after the clock strikes midnight, they do not receive the “ironman title.” The Ironman competitors range from professional athletes to those with prosthetic legs. Amazing huh?
Love was in the air, as usual as yet another random person proposed to a member of our evangie team.This time it was David Barr’s turn! Not, only was she immediately receptive to the gospel when the girls spoke to her, but then she immediately feel in love….apparently.

Just after this I got into a conversation with a newly wed couple who admitted to being fully involved in Satanic worship.Though tempted to end the conversation there, something told me to stick to it. We began discussing morals, evidence of the bible, etc., Suddenly the man of the couple began letting it all out. He began spitting out all the reasons why “the God of the bible was entirely unjust.”Fortunately for him, all the things he described were not true attributes of the true God of the bible. We were able to break down his misconceptions and then finally he stopped talking and actually smiled. He shook our hands, thanked us for the clarification and said he would certainly consider the claims we made. God is Good:)

…Whatever your gifting and passions are use them to serve Christ and serve others, as he did.
