Best of 2013: Swimming in life-giving waters
This week on Wesley Impact! TV we meet sporting great, Duncan Armstrong, and the Rev Dr Keith Garner explores Jonah.
At just 20 years of age Duncan won an Olympic gold medal in the 200 metre freestyle at Seoul in 1988. Duncan shares about the power and pull of the competitive sports world and how he became disillusioned, finding his life had lots of gaps. He had a real encounter with Jesus Christ when he was invited to church and has committed his life to following Him ever since. Duncan talks about the release he has found since becoming a Christian from feeling the pressure to want to be the best and in control of everything in his life. He talks about how his life has become more colourful, deep and exciting than it ever was before.
