Monday We Had Fish

Tonight we had our twice-monthly chapel service called MONDAY WE HAVE FISH with the Peterborough Petes. What a night! We didn't even get to the questions on the handout I had prepared. The guys, led by captain John Armstrong (pictured) had more serious issues that they wanted to discuss.

How can we know that the Bible is true?
Why have there been so many wars over religion?
If there is only one true religion are all the rest wrong?
What happens when you die?

Great questions that taxed me and yet thrilled me at the same time. Many of the players had other commitments tonight so we only had 13 players present but it was one of the most thought-provoking evenings we've ever had.

I praise God for the opportunity He has opened up for me over the last 12 years to pour truth into the lives of these young men 16-20 years of age.

Thanks for your prayers!


  1. Praise the Lord!!!! Such an encouraging post David...
    God Is so GOOD!!!!

  2. It's wonderful that you can be such a blessing, and also be blessed the opportunity to minister into the lives of those young men! I pray that many seed were planted and that their hearts will be open to and touched by God.

  3. Wow David...what a wonderful opportunity you have with those young men! I'm sure you're making a long-lasting impression on their lives. Awesome!

  4. Pilgrim,

    You know something funny....Monday I had fish (the one that swims in water ;) for supper and I thought of you! and the Petes, of course! I was wondering if y'all had fish that night, and now I read this.

    Great questions they had. I'm sure the Lord will give you wisdom to always answer their questions.

    Love and Prayers,
