Lay Witnesses for Christ International has ministered at every Summer Olympics since Los Angeles 1984, with the support of a team of chaplains with the dual fervent goals of Christian fellowship and soul winning. Many of these chaplains are former Olympians who can act more easily as disciples by discussing issues of eternal destiny with fellow Olympians.
Dr Sam Mings, with Sharon, his wife of 46 years by his side, has been the stalwart of these well-planned and smoothly-executed campaigns. They have left no stone unturned in order to search out open doors for their style of ministry.

This award to Mark and Delma Tronson was presented by Olympian of the Century Carl Lewis and awarded by Dr Sam Mings' Lay Witnesses for Christ.
