Iron Arizona

The Arizona Ironman in November was a great success for FCA Endurance. Many FCA-E teammates raced—some competing in their very first full ironman event—and those who didn’t race were able to cheer on and support the athletes on the course. While the Ironman race itself was a great way for FCA-E to show a Christ-centered presence to athletes and fans alike, the expo and Ironprayer provided an incredible platform for Christ to impact the lives of those who attended.

The Phoenix huddle took charge of the event, setting up an FCA-E booth at the expo and helping with Ironprayer as well. Phoenix huddle leaders John and Debbie Foster were thrilled with the opportunity they had at the expo to share Christ with others. “We had great conversations at the booth and got God’s Word into a lot of people’s hands,” Debbie said, and the Phoenix huddle met one man whose story confirmed the importance of doing just that.

Gary Vermette, a triathlete from Canada, traveled to Arizona to compete in the event. After meeting the Phoenix huddle at the expo and beginning conversations with other FCA-E teammates, Gary decided to attend Ironprayer. “The speakers at Ironprayer were eloquent and inspiring,” Gary said, “and the praise and worship team was great.” Gary also appreciated the presence of FCA-E on the race course. “FCA-E teammates encouraged us all the way.” Gary could not deny the impact that FCA Endurance had on his life while he was in Arizona. “I want to thank the FCA Endurance organization for helping me reconnect with Christ. Without them, who knows how long I would’ve been a lost soul.”

It’s incredible how much Gary learned—how much his relationship with Christ changed—after interacting with FCA-E teammates for one weekend. The support, love, and grace extended by the Phoenix huddle proved to Gary that life was about a lot more than racing triathlons, and because of that Gary turned toward Christ and began seeking Him. We never know how our presence as FCA Endurance teammates is influencing those around us, and we cannot take that lightly. For Gary, FCA-E was the starting point of a new relationship with Christ, and he will never forget the way his life was changed. “This weekend will go down as one of the most spiritual journeys I have ever experienced.” May we constantly strive to be Christ in order to impact people like Gary.

“For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.” – 2 Corinthians 5: 14-15

Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with?
I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm having a
difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your layout seems different
then most blogs and I'm looking for something
completely unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
