God at centre of Harper’s run

LEROY HARPER has finished his race and committed his life to God.

And Reverend Anderson Kellman encouraged those gathered at the Western Light Nazarene Church to bid their final farewell to the well-known athletic official, to do the same.

“This race is an endurance test. It’s not a sprint. It will cause us at times to slow down. It may cause us at times to speed up; sometimes you may have to put your hands around a brother or sister, but we will all get the same prize,” Kellman said in his sermon, while reflecting on Hebrews 12 and connecting it to Harper’s love for athletics.

Members of the athletics fraternity, a number of sporting associations, former students, family, friends and colleagues came out to pay their final respects. (RG)
