Resilient Athletes

Resilient Athletes


Yusra Mardini demonstrates incredible resilience as she jumped from refugee to Olympian.

Yusra experienced inconceivable turmoil and war in her home country of Syria, but her sheer will for survival powered her strokes across treacherous ocean waves when she saved numerous other refugees by swimming their boat to safety. She went on to compete as a swimmer with the Refugee Olympic Team and continues to train to meet her next goal: competing in the 2020 Olympics.

In this message, we will look at one of Jesus’ most well-known parables and discover how his desire is for you to be a “resilient athlete” who stands strong and bounces back from every flood and storm that batters your life.
