“This is what it is all about!  This is why I am not interested in retirement!” 

Seventy-two-year old Lonnie Hodge has been discipling a soccer coach in Bolivia.  The coach asked him to speak to his team of 15-16 players about “What is Truth?”  Beginning with Pilate asking Jesus that question, Lonnie pointed out how each book of the Bible speaks of Christ.  The young men listened attentively.  One asked, “Just what is Holy Week?”  Lonnie shared the events of the week, showing that Christ was the Passover Lamb.  He concluded, giving opportunity for them to pray silently.

Later the coach texted Lonnie that 4-6 of the soccer players had come to know Christ!

The President of the soccer club was also present and said he had never seen a group of young men so attentive.
