The World is Coming to London
Hi, this is Chuck Swindoll. I can remember the newscasts of the celebrations in London when the venue for the 2012 Olympic Games was finally decided. That was back in July of 2005. It has taken a lot of work and a lot of investment to get ready for the Games, but here we are – summer of 2012, and the whole world is coming to London.
I hope you get the chance to meet some visitors, to learn about their cultures, to walk alongside them for a moment while they take in the sights and sounds of that great city.

So pray for the doors to open for you to tell the world about God’s love.
