I am a big fan of the TV show “Amazing Race”. I think it appeals to my love of travel and my fascination of other cultures around the world. I have watched many of the seasons, though not all of them, and each year I have a team that I find myself rooting for.
This time around, I think it is the team of Andy Finch and Tommy Czeschin – professional snowboarders from California. They have been doing well, and unlike most teams that compete, have been completely laid back the whole journey thus far.
When looking into who they were, I came across Andy Finch’s story on a cool website for ThisIzMyStory ministries. They are a ministry that exists to spread the story of what God is doing in and through the lives of a handful of surfers, wakeboarders, snowboarders and more (Brian Jennings and Bethany Hamilton included). Check out the video below.
Through his story, we see why he seems so laid back on the show. He has had to deal with some hard times in his life – and now he is taking advantage of a chance to travel around the world, see some sights and enjoy it all as he does it.
He has some other videos both of his snowboarding and lessons about God he is learning from snowboarding on the YouTube channel for thisizmystory
