JR LaRose event summary

Last night's event with BC Lion JR LaRose was fantastic.

Those of us who were able to go met at the church and left at 6:20pm. We drove to New Life Baptist Church in Vancouver and got there about 10 mins before the event started. There were about 60-70 people there. We sang some songs and then the pastor at New Life invited JR to come and speak. He talked about growing up in a very poor part of town with no positive outlook on life. How his family was split up his whole life. His father was from Nigeria and his mother is aboriginal. He talked about struggling through life and meeting Jesus. He also talked about struggling in life when you try to live both as a christian and as a non-believer and how that doesn't work. At the end there was an invitation for those who wanted to know Jesus to meet Him.

For those of you who weren't able to make you missed out on a great event. And the pizza afterwards wasn't bad either.

Lt. Garth
