Sport Fest Testimony from Trong at RP

  1. 1. My Journey to God w/ RP thru Sport Fest Hi, my name is Trong – from RP (Redemption Point). Welcome to those who are new at Sport Fest I am shy from public speaking. That’s why we use these 9 slides
  2. 2. And this is my friend, Binh
  3. 3. Four years ago I was playing volleyball at a park with Binh. At the time I did not know about Sport Fest, Christianity, or even Jesus Christ. Binh invited me to play volleyball for RP for Sport Fest. I was hesitant because I’m not that competitive but since my friends are joining, I thought I would give it a shot. I had a great time practicing with the volleyball team. We started to connect and hang out…
  4. 4. One day Bing invited me over to Bumble and Jenney’s house. This is when I started to meet more people and connect with the community at RP. Hanging out with the community peaked my curiosity about Christianity, so I started to join multiple small groups. At one point, I was going to 3 different small groups during the week. I was going to join the 4th group, but it was for couples only :-) This is “community time” (hanging out with small groups) This is a small group around Christmas
  5. 5. Eventually with the guidance and support from RP I came to believe and accept Jesus Christ die for our sins. I was baptized after the third Sport Fest I played with RP
  6. 6. Before I became a Christian, I was a static person who was apathetic to almost everything. I didn’t find it necessary to put my emotions into relationships, school, sports, and situations in life. For example, I would rather stay home play on my computer than go and hang out with people. I didn’t understand the full value of relationships. Most of my friendships remained at the surface level.
  7. 7. But now looking back I realized what I was missing. I lacked the understanding of having meaningful relationships. Thanks to the community, friends helped me realized what I need to do to grow as a person. For example, I use to have a messy car (I mean really messy). It was so messy that people cannot sit in the backseats. My friends kept telling me to clean my car for the longest time…
  8. 8. ..The fact is I know that my car is messy and I know that I need to clean it. But the concept of someone speaking truth into my life is very foreign. I didn’t get close enough to people for them to talk to me before. To be honest, at first I was a bit annoyed thinking to myself “why are these people telling me this?” But then I realized that they care enough about me to tell me what I need to do; because I know that they want me to become a better person.
  9. 9. Because of these close, deep friendships I’ve grown closer to Christ. And now I’m here. With all I’ve shared, I want to encourage everyone to invite your friends to hangout with the community at any RP events, especially the Sports Fest.
  10. 10. Because of these close, deep friendships I’ve grown closer to Christ. And now I’m here. With all I’ve shared, I want to encourage everyone to invite your friends to hangout with the community at any RP events, especially the Sports Fest.
