I received an amazing text message from Casey Laulala who is a former All Black and a current member of the champion Super 14 Crusaders and Canterbury rugby team. Somehow he has heard news of my situation. He reminded me that “nothing is impossible with God” and that he and the other christians in the team are praying for me!
About a year ago we had Casey and a couple of the other christians in the team in Hanmer Springs where I interviewed them in church one Sunday morning. Some are now playing in France and Japan. I would never have thought they’d even remember their time here, let alone send a text and pray. Â Very moving and very humbling.
