Opportunities to share

IMB missionary Carlton Walker shows volunteers an Army Air Force (AAF) fabric map of Japan during a training event that was hosted in preparation for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. The map belonged to his father-in-law, who served as a pilot during World War II. Carlton used the map as an illustration to encourage the volunteers to consider the opportunities they will have to share the gospel during the Olympics.
