Want to see a GIFT IN MOTION!..

What type of woman participates in TWO Ironman events (both within just 1 1/2 months)?  For those who do not know what the Ironman competition is, it consists of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bicycle ride, and a marathon of 26.2 miles raced in that order and without a break. It is widely considered one of the most difficult one-day sporting events in the world.  

I'm proud to introduce you to my friend, Nadya.  Nadya did amazing in her 1st Ironman, but why did she participate in the 2nd Ironman?  


You may not believe what her quest was!  
She entered so she could encourage (bring joy) to the competitors and spur them on! 

What woman runs 6 hours, cold & hungry....and with butterfly wings on her back! A woman with a gift! Nadya has the gift of encouragement.  The word “encourage” in the Greek is paracletos, which basically means to call to one's side or urge.

Thank you Nadya...for showing God off through the gift He gave you. You truly are an inspiration!

God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the gift to encourage others, be encouraging. Rom. 12:6-8
