In spite of the cool, misty day, seventy-four enthusiastic golfers showed up for the 2007 LifeLight Ministries Golf Tournament in Steinbach on September 18. Inner City Youth Alive earned twenty-one Bibles with a special game at one of the holes, a Bible for each first shot that went onto the green. After a scrumptious meal, some ministry highlights were shared, followed by the distribution of prizes.
One lucky golfer received a certificate from Powerland Computers for a weekend at Wilderness Edge in Pinawa. Tower Engineering Group donated a registration prize—four box seats for the hockey game the next evening. All the participants had the opportunity to choose a prize from the wide selection available. Each one also received a copy of The Message LifeLight New Testament.
About $11,000 was raised, which will be used to get the Lion Graphic Bible to the people of Russia in their language. David Loewen of Kingdom Ventures, who spent several years in Russia, says, “A Russian Graphic Bible is important. It is in keeping with many Russian people’s visual approach to learning, as they read pictures like we read words.” Lena Hamm is working on the translation of this Bible and hopes to have it completed by the end of the year.
Thank you to all the sponsors, golfers and other contributors who helped make this event a success.
