Portugal Masters Vilamoura Marina October 7 – 10
The final week of the European based part of the Tour is very popular and many players, caddies and others at the event bring their families out with them, disappointingly this year went out, not with the usual sunshine, but with a thunderstorm or two or three, as the event was reduced to only 36 holes …. In my four years going there the Thursday was the first time I’d seen rain, that day and Friday brought enough to do another four years, for when it rains, it really rains …
You may recall, I have asked you to pray for a chap who was looking for a caddy job after our last meet up in Switzerland and he has found one … I also met up with him and his girlfriend a couple of times so it was good to share the role of what I do there in more detail and I’ll meet up with him again over the next few weeks in Belfast … Do keep him on your prayer list ….
I got together with the caddy, with whom I had a long talk at Aberdeen and then he intimated wanted to do a bible study the other week, so we duly met up and I have to say I don’t think I’ve ever come across someone with so little idea of God, who he reckons is a myth, as is all to do with the entire “Christian myth” as he sees it … he confidently predicts he will return as reincarnation exists and so it goes on …. He is such a friendly bloke though and always leaves with a smile, which I think really means he thinks what I tell of Jesus is ludicrously humorous to him … As we know, God can open any heart …
The next time I’m away is when the tour reaches Sth Africa in late November for a four week spell, and it really isn’t right me having to go there in the midst of our winter and their boiling hot summer, But Logos make me do it!!!
