Bridges FC Newsletter – August 2013

“God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.”
– I Corinthians 1:27

We were given the great opportunity to see God’s work on our summer European Tour. We had great matches, 14 players sign professional contracts, and most importantly, a great opportunity to share our faith in God with these young athletes.

Please take the opportunity to review our most recent progress report.

Spiritual growth
  • Spent extended time in conversation about the importance of a spiritual foundation in moving to Europe and beginning a professional sports career. For us this foundation is our faith and trust in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
  • Continued participation at Willow Creek Church prior to our departure on our tour July 3rd
