“This is special that you would give me this thank you card. It really touches my heart that you would come all this way to thank us.” A Sports Physiotherapist at the Olympics
This sports medicine professional’s reply was typical of the response AIA Global Sports staff experienced as they greeted many in the Westfield Mall in London. It was a place where people celebrated, relaxed, and escaped during their Olympic experience. It was a safe place to connect with people from all over the world. AIA staff greeted athletes and sports professionals and handed out small gifts and thank you cards made by the Kardia Foundation, thanking them for their contribution to the Olympic effort. Our goal was to share God’s love and make connections. These connections led to conversations with people, such as team physicians from many different countries. Through these relationships, we pray God will create ministry opportunities to serve these countries through Sports Performance. In each case, God’s love will be shared while we serve, and conversations about holding future projects within these countries can take place. It’s through this desire to serve that God will send His message of salvation to many around the world.
You are a vital part of this team by supporting AIA Global Sports. We appreciate your partnership in the gospel. Since athletes are heroes to many people around the world, those who know Jesus have unprecedented opportunities to be His ambassadors, and we, together with you, get to help facilitate that.
