A.I.A. Track and Field: Fiji 2008

I had the privilege to return to Fiji again this summer with AIA. It was an amazing trip! Our team of 22 came became extremely close knit. We were on the same page spiritually praying and worshipping as one. The trip had a huge impact on me and it was so cool to see how much God was working in our group and in Fiji all around us!

Here are some of my favorite pictures from the trip...the places we went and the people we reached.

I know I haven't posted anything in a while but hopefully I will get caught up soon on all my summer travels!

My summer started with a week in Xenia, Ohio for training camp at A.I.A. headquarters before the international teams were sent out on mission trips. On our last day at training camp we got the opportunity to volunteer at a local youth club track meet. It was so refreshing to watch the kids compete as hard as they could having a blast without worrying about winning or times, etc. They truly exemplified the pure joy of sport that we as athletes so easily forget.

Here are a few of my favorite shots from the day. Enjoy!
