The Geumsan Region’s United Sports Festival held in Wolmyeongdong

 

Members of the Christian Gospel Mission (CGM) from Geumsan held a united sports festival on May 17, 2015 in the Wolmyeongdong Sports Field.

Before the sports festival began, a solar halo appeared in the sky above Wolmyeongdong. A solar halo is a symbol of eternity. The Trinity made the solar halo appear as a sign to show people that the Trinity was with those at the festival.

The festival kicked off with praise and prayer. Also, the representatives of each church vowed to play fairly. The festival was comprised of many activities, such as dodgeball, a plank walking race, hurdles, tug-of-war and a relay race. 

Husbands teamed up with their wives to play dodgeball, and, as they played the festival games together, they were able to reignite the love they had for each other. Each child was also able to team up with one of their parents to compete in a plank walking race. While working together, both the children and parents were able to learn how to understand and be considerate of each other’s hearts. Playing the games ended as very meaningful experience for them.

The members who ran hurdles gained greater confidence, realizing that even if there may be many obstacles in the future, they will overcome those obstacles and achieve the goals they have set. There were many turning points during the race, which fueled the excitement.

 

The members who played tug-of-war realized just how important unity with one another is. The highlight of the festival was the relay race. Excitement was at its highest peak. Everyone was cheering for their team to win as they zealously called on the Trinity.

The festival came to an end with a raffle. So not only were people’s hearts filled with joy, but their hands were also full of prizes.


The Wolmyeongdong Church placed first in the festival, the Geumsan Region United Team came in second, and a church from Geumsan came third. 



When everyone from the Geumsan region--from the Milky Way members to the Joy Star members--was giving glory to the Trinity on the Wolmyeongdong Sports Field, the Trinity made an eagle fly around in the sky above Wolmyeongdong as a sign of Their love.


We give all glory to the Trinity who taught us about the importance of exercise, gave us the opportunity to give glory to Them through sports, and gave us the opportunity for the members of the Geumsan region to unite.
