Pastor Miles McPherson of The Rock Church on Sunday interviewed San Diego Chargers' running back Danny Woodhead, who shared with the congregation how he surrenders to God in his life as well as when he plays his game.
Pastor McPherson, who played for the Chargers for 4 years, told the members of his San Diego megachurch that Woodhead's testimony is not just for them to hear and be encouraged by it, but for them to apply it to their life. "As you listen to Danny's story, I want you to think about your life and how God wants you to know Him better."
"I grew up in a strong Christian home, both parents served Jesus. It was all about Jesus," Woodhead, who joined the San Diego Chargers in 2013, told Pastor McPherson. "I had great examples. My mom and dad taught me that it was about a relationship with Him," the NFL star added. "It wasn't a set of rules. That was the example to me, that it's about a relationship with Jesus." more >>

Abedini, who converted from Islam and spent three years and a half in prison in Iran for his Christian faith, has slammed the teachings of Islam in several statements, arguing that it's a "lie" to believe that Islam is a peaceful religion. more >>

Mexico is eyeing reigning Copa America champs, Chile, in an international friendly soccer game that will be played at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, California. The match takes place on Wednesday, June 1, 2016 and kick-off time is 10 p.m. ET or (7 p.m. PT).
Both teams are likely favorites to win the Copa America tournament taking place across 10 cities in the U.S. between June 3 - 26. With the sheer amount of Mexican immigrants and descendants living in the U.S., Mexico should feel as if it was playing at home for this one. However, count out reigning champs, Chile, who have a squad capable enough to beat any team participating in the cup, including Mexico.

Police in Washington, D.C. have blocked evangelist Ray Comfort and his team from giving away close to $25,000 in Subway gift cards to atheists at the upcoming Reason Rally, and even threatened arrests of those who approach rally attendees.
Comfort has since said that the giftcards will be handed out to homeless people instead.
