Over the next couple of months, we'll be reporting and gathering content from two international sporting competitions. Please pray for these projects, for the logistics, funding, access and interviews, as we carry out our mission of introducing sports fans from across the world to Jesus Christ.
World Indoor Athletics, Birmingham, 1-4 March
Over 400 athletes from 150 countries will be competing at this global event in Birmingham at the beginning of March. Passion for Sport will be there too with Norman Brierley (left) reporting for our Planet Sport radio programme. Give thanks that Norman has received his media accreditation and pray that he will have opportunities to record quality interviews with Christian sportsmen and women to challenge and encourage our listeners about the joy of following Jesus.
Commonwealth Games, Australia, 4-15 April
On 29 March media producers Liam Flint and Tom Ellis head to Gold Coast, Australia to report from the Commonwealth Games for our radio, online and social media followers. Passion for Sport has reported from each of the last five editions of the Games going back to Manchester in 2002. Over 6,600 athletes from 70 Commonwealth nations will be competing at the Games. Give thanks for the Christian family that has generously offered accommodation and pray that Liam and Tom will be guided to athletes with a strong passion for Jesus willing to share their stories with our listeners and online followers.
