FIFA World Cup 2010

This year, the biggest event in South Africa was the World Cup. Dad says it's not because of the soccer, but because God is bringing about 1 million people from around the world just to receive God's word. That was the main focus of the World Cup this year, as we were passing out about 23 000 John & Romans in Nelspruit during 4 of the 64 games being held in June and July. FIFA had organized Park & Ride areas in each host city, where all people attending games would be filtered through here to get to the stadium. This allowed us to pass out these J&R at many different points in Nelspruit. Our church had lots of help from 3 other Independent Baptist churches from Mpumalanga, making it a great time for fellowship. Anne and Gordon were blessed enough to go to a game or two. Gordon went to the Italy vs New Zealand game (ITA-1; NZ-1), and both Anne and Gordon went to the Australia vs Serbia game (AUS- 2; SER- 1). The game was loud with the buzzing drone of Vuvuzelas that never stopped, even after the game. Enjoy the pictures (Notice the Giraffe shaped columns around the Mbombela Stadium:)
