“Greetings from YWAM Harpenden, England!”
Time is roaring by and the London 2012 Summer Olympics begin in less than a week! As you can imagine, things are moving at a rapid pace as athletes, visitors and outreach teams from all over the world are gathering in London and surrounding host cities.
Last week on Tuesday, there was a record 250,000 people who arrived into Heathrow Airport alone. Other airports are reporting the same things.
The Olympic Torch is approaching the site and we were able to see the run through nearby Luton.
One of the bands that we are hosting is “Fruhstuck” from Poland. They arrive on Friday, July 27 and will play for 3 days. We are asking you to pray for the band and other groups who are part of this outreach. The weather is a big factor, as this is England and outside stages can be affected by rain.
Here is their schedule:
FRIDAY, JULY 27……St. John Strafford……….14:00 (2:00pm)….30 minute set
18:00 (6:00pm)….45 minute set
This concert is near where the Olympic Village is located and the bands will be playing on an outside stage where many people will be passing by.
SATURDAY, JULY 28…..Wimbleton Soul in the City……14:30 (2:30pm)…….45 minute set
16:30 (4:30pm)…… 45 minute set
Another concert near Wimbleton Tennis Court area on an outside stage.
SUNDAY, JULY 29………The Velvet Bar………13:30 (1:30pm)…….45 minute set
16:00 (4:00pm)…….45 minute set
21:00 (9:00pm)…….45 minute set
This bar is located in The Long Acre area.
It will be wild and crazy for transporting the band around. Most of the time, we will be on the different Underground Train lines where thousands of people who will be “on board”.
