The Games Is Coming To Town

When a big event like the Commonwealth Games comes to town, it's really exciting, not only for the locals, and also people from many nations (there are athletes coming from 71 nations for the Games). There will be numerous activities going on during the time, whether it's table tennis, aquatics diving sport, swimming, squash, synchronised swimming, gymnastics or non-sporting events like arts or shopping, really Melbourne city is going to be 'a happening place' from next Wednesday onwards for over 10 days. And I heard a rumour that ballroom dancing will be destined for inclusion in the next Commonwealth Games. Wow! All the more reason and motivation to learn ballroom dancing right?

Apart from sports, arts is going to be another big thing during this period. Groundbreaking work by artists from many countries across the Commonwealth will be available during the games, which include special exhibitions, artist and curator talks, live performances, film screenings and education events etc. Visiting International and local exhibiting artists will provide insight into their practice.

My visual artist friend David White will have the 'Word Art Exhibition' during the games. His works will be exhibited at three different location in city venues, and I'll help him be the greeter for the exhibition. I am so looking forward to all these. Let the games begin!

I was in Manchester, England in 2002 during the Games! What an amazing time! I was there to do mission work through a local church, and we spent most of our time doing street ministry and street evangelism.

Brings back great memories!

Hi Amanda, why don't you come down to the east for the games dear? Would be great to meet with you in person ;)

Hi Brother Douglas, thanks for your prayers. Please also pray for all Christians who are serving during this time, that God will use them for His glory.
