GLOW is pleased to help support the new Athletes In Action (AIA) ministry in Puerto Rico, led by Gary and Cristen Schmalz who are there on a 1 year outreach. Gabriel, Wilito and Luis are leaders in the new campus ministry. Christian is a new attendee and Rodolfo is a new follower of Christ thanks to AIA!
Trials bring blessings: After a long frustrating day on campus, Gary decided to head for the track stadium to pray. While there, an athlete walked by once, then twice and even a third time. “OK, Lord I will go talk to him.” That led to a long awkward conversation in broken Spanish and English. (Gary is still learning basic Spanish.)
Two days later Rodolfo was at the AIA Fall Retreat and the next week he started to attend the AIA weekly bible study. Just this last week he decided to follow Christ! His life is changed for all of eternity. Please pray for Rodolfo as he begins to mature in his relationship with Christ, and for the other Christian leaders on mission for Jesus at Puerto Rico’s Interamericana University.
Gary is regional director of Athletes in Action and as such also coordinates outreach and leadership training programs across the USA. Many of these students end up on global mission trips, spreading the good news around the world.
