PASTOR RICK WARREN’S VISIT TO MANNY PACQUIAO’S TRAINING CAMP

PhilBoxing.com




LAS VEGAS, NEV. (June 6, 2012) – On May 29, Pastor Rick Warren paid a visit to the Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood, Calif., to observe Manny Pacquiao train for his June 9 world title defense against Timothy Bradley, Jr.

Following the training session, Pastor Rick interviewed Manny and his wife Jinkee, conducted a Bible study and prayed with them. This link will take you to their video. Hit the “download” button. http://vimeo.com/43315952

“Manny Pacquiao is THE purpose-driven boxer! His huge heart for God energizes his heart for everything else - his family, his country, his sport, the street kids, and all his fans,” said Pastor Rick. “Right in the middle of a hectic schedule packed with training and media interviews, Manny made the time to sit down and do a one-on-one Bible Study with me, ignoring cameras and onlookers, and focusing instead on what God might want to say to him personally at the moment. What most people don’t know about Manny is that he has more of the Bible memorized than many pastors do. He not only quotes the Bible from memory; he applies it to his life. But what I love most Manny is that, in spite of his fame and wealth, he is training for this fight in a typical inner city gym, surrounded by the kinds of kids he used to be on the streets of Manila. Rather than training in some exclusive, over-priced and air-conditioned celebrity gym in Beverly Hills, he is modeling his workout for kids who also dream of one day living a better life.”
