Athletes in Action All-Star Football
April 2011
Just recently I had the privilege of teaming up with some great friends and leaders from Athletes in Action to help put together our 37th Annual High School All-Star football game. The players come from across the greater National Capital Region and are selected by their high school coaches to represent their school and showcase their own talents as football players. We put them through two weeks of practices, coached by varsity coaches, and then they play in an East/West game before hundreds of family and friends. We also have the chance to share the love of Jesus with the players. It was my privilege over the past few years to give the pre-practice challenge, and this year I did it on the importance of character. Since the weeks were on either side of Easter weekend, bringing Jesus into the conversation was made quite easy. Here is a photo of what I look like on the field, as well as some practice shots.

Trip to Vietnam

February 2011
Patty and I travelled to Vietnam for about three weeks this February to visit our son David and his girlfriend Lucy who are teaching there. It was a great experience in a different culture, how to avoid eating peanuts and a society that is completely removed from our own. Here are some pictures of that time.
