While five members of the team are departing, Silver Team members are arriving. Fred Dallas arrived today, along with Jonathan Gray. This is Fred's eighth Olympics. Jonathan is a first timer. Within an hour of arrival they were at Copacabana engaged in ministry. Doug Compton hit the ground running as well.
Even with bags packed, ready to depart for the airport, Doug Martin is still sharing His story.
Today, five members of our team head home. It has been a glorious week serving together. If you have ever attended a family reunion where the family has not seen each other for a while, you understand how we felt as each team member arrived August 4th. Now, we say see you soon to those departing. Many of us have been serving together since 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Games. A few even go back to 2000 Summer Games in Sydney, Australia.
Our team members have had the opportunity to visit Christ the Redeemer Statue. What a brilliant view the mountain peak provides of Rio de Janeiro. Team members shared with visitors the story of the "Jesus Pin" at the train depot, during the ride to the top, at the top and on the way down. People everywhere eagerly await to hear the message.
