An Adam Wainwright Twitter invitation had over 13,000 fans saying they’d join the all-star baseball player in reading through the Bible in a single year. What an amazing way to use the platform God has given him!
Veteran pitcher with the St. Louis Cardinals Adam Wainwright posted a simple message on Twitter announcing his plans to read through God's Word in one year. In order to tackle the feat, Adam committed to reading selections each day from the Old and New Testaments.
But here’s the best part. The Major League Baseball player doesn’t want to do it alone. So, Adam extended an invite to his fans on Twitter, asking them to join him in the journey!
"Hey everybody," he wrote. "This won’t be for everyone, but it’s an important part of my life. Most of y’all probably just want to talk baseball, etc. BUT, if you want to read through the Bible with me In one year you can join my other twitter account ... @walkingwwaino."
