a changed man
This weekend grand final fever will hit Sydney and the Northern Beaches where our local team Manly will play. One of the unsung stars of the Manly team is a guy called Brent Kite, who is pictured below.
The following article appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald on 29th September 2011.
'Sitting among the 82,000 fans at ANZ Stadium on Sunday will be Brent Kite's grand final inspiration - his cousin Mosiana Vaigalo.
A month ago, Mosiana, who grew up in the same house as Kite, was fighting for her life in hospital after she was swept out in a rip at Maroubra beach with her sisters, Rubey, 14 and Manu, 15.
When Rubey and Manu were discharged from hospital, Mosiana, who had celebrated her 21st just two days earlier, still wasn't breathing. She was put into a coma and, while the doctors were hopeful, her family weren't given any assurances. Kite didn't leave her side.
''I was in there praying with her and talking to her,'' Kite said.'
As I read this article I was so encouraged because I know Brent Kite's faith is real.
Can I urge you to take 5 minutes 16 seconds of your day to watch the following video where Brent explains, along with his wife, his conversion.
It is real and wonderful!!!!!
I hope Manly win on Sunday but even if they don’t, Brent Kite and I know that there are more important things than Rugby League at the end of the day, and at the end of life!!!!
