Fields of Faith brightens up the night with theme of "Be the Light" ...

The sixth annual local Fields of Faith event in Waukon was held Wednesday, October 11 at the Waukon High School football field to share in an evening of faith-filled messages. The featured highlight of the evening was the presentation by Jake Vanada (pictured in center photo), a resident of Minneapolis, MN who currently serves as Chaplain for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) Supercross and Motocross Series of motorcycle racing. Within his energy-filled message that he related to the sports venue where the event was held once again this year, Vanada encouraged those in attendance to do two things in order to have a more fulfilling faith life: "Listen to the Coach" and "Obey the Coach," with that "Coach" being the Lord and all of those in attendance being players in the game of life. Vanada also tied this year's theme of "Be the Light" into his message, again in the sports venue realm, asking how difficult it would be to play a game of football that night if all the lights were shut off and emphasizing to those in attendance how important it is for them to "Be the Light" not only in their own faith life but, quite possibly, also for others to follow to help them find their way out of their own darkness and to the light of the Lord. Also speaking at the event and sharing their messages of faith in their own lives were Waukon High School seniors Nathan Smith, Isaiah Welch and Gabby Marti, and Waukon High School sophomore Micah Treptau. A skit was also performed by members of the First Baptist Church Mission Team (pictured in bottom photo) acting out how the Lord died for the sins of his followers and defeated evil and darkness with his resurrection.
