8 Years Ago in Vancouver & Whistler: My journal of life as a chaplain at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games

With today being the opening ceremonies of the 2018 Pyeonchang Winter Olympic Games, I’m remembering the opportunity the Lord opened up for me to serve as a chaplain during the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games. There was so much the Lord did there in Vancouver and Whistler, British Columbia, Canada.

The Bible says this in Psalm 77:11-12…

I will remember the deeds of the Lord;
yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.
I will consider all your works
and meditate on all your mighty deeds.

It’s good to look back from time-to-time and remember the great things the Lord has done! If you’d like to read any of the day-by-day journal entries, I’ve listed the links below. You’ll read about:

  • Serving with chaplains from all over the world
  • Ministering to the team from the Republic of Georgia after a fatal accident in a training run
  • Q: “What kind of chaplain are you?” A: “The kind that sits on a couch with bobsledders to watch the cross country race on TV”
  • Much, much more

As for these 2018 Olympics, I am at home in ATL, praying and cheering for the Games. Click on the links below to read a day-by-day journal of my experience as a chaplain during the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games:

  1. I was just thinking about you the other day and how much I enjoyed following your Olympic experience. Hard to believe its been 8 years already! Time sure flies. Wanted to ask if you still keep in touch with John Napier, whom I know you were very close to. If so, how is he doing, and what is he up to these days?

    1. John is spending lots of time working and providing leadership at the bobsled track in Lake Placid, among other things. We stay in touch. God continues to lead and guide him and work in his life. Thanks for asking about him!
