Okay my brothers were all a huge sport. My dad was one of very conditional people who thought you should like every hometown team that was available okay now I'm like well you know me now.

I doubt like you really want to think like, you know, Redskin fan and I'm like, like the team they're playing itself out of rebellion that I killed the bear to go well. We got about nature we gotta do that. Anyway, though, so get in there all these years later still appears yet.
Well good for you while I kiss it I mailed out one of those big like Rob, like all I you I grew up in Minnesota right not coursing right all the listeners out there by now you should realize I'm not from Russia right so but will get to your question is can relate to that. But so yeah so so you Minnesota Viking for the course, all these years later you have lived in the Carolinas longer now than anywhere else comps to their number one.
I mailed all the time. I let you know some still Viking fan, right?
Right yet Fike is embarrassing over the years the blood of the call. Don't they just call the black and blue division. I don't know that he was still do these call the black and blue division Risa Katz. It was a fan of the bear's blood, but I respect all of the teams right so yet at this point I just like a good competitive game. So I'm a good game. So Ms. so you grow up in a house full of of of men.
Bless your heart that had to be challenging moment now but being the only girl you learn how to manipulate them from time now. Tick tick event is to take advantage of it will be behind all the girls to stand I raised four girls so I can understand a little bit about the euros fours as far as the soft tender heart of the of the girl wrote. Gotta take care of the girls so what how'd it will be escorted because we get to your room and go to your your your wrestling question here in the second so hot when the wrestling come into into play there. What were we to dad your brothers away with arresting fans how that come to be that we can watch wrestling going in on any my one and only, where he went right through to get to. Have you left it on it. Now the brotherhood closest to my pretty much someone comparable or becoming such diehard fan and I like my very first favorite wrestler was Tito Santana. Okay, go way back. And yes I love him part forever and like it started bear, you know you just find one that rhymes your entrant and then from there you just aren't so infected. Well, I appreciate really appreciate you.
Such really honestly loyal fan and in all these years later in Utah sit all the time. It always bears repeating that we love love love our our our fans and this is so thank you for for business along long-standing loyal fan and I appreciate the effort that in the hardware and you know the unconverted pain that you know that you all go to to perform recommended and back to get the blessing on our side and have something positive to look forward to each week for seductive and nothing more more people. If you have come to appreciate what you just said really realizing you know that yes wrestling is entertainment. But, yes, Gothic ice really arrive. I had my share. I have my share of injuries in in the ring and some some a little more serious than others fortunately have never had any major's major serious injuries like some of the guys you have sustained you know stone cold meal break in his nectar is different. Different know, just lots of guys blowing off the shoulder further near different things like that fortune. Fortunately, I do that on the gridiron.
I did that on the football field. So I guess I got it all out of my system on the football feel worried and helped her. Although I will say like even now might like my lower back at me these last six months is just been aggravated me that that the heck out of me and and it's you know it's it's from from being that human crest on the right and that wrestling react almost body you know yeah so what your question was, was your Russian accent hard to master.
Well Lori, let me tell you something right now.
She thought it was tough that they give back a little bit easier. Like I really thought it was authentic to the everything you know wrestling like we didn't hang out.
We were at the mercy of my show and magazine that came out late weeks after the event happened fell into information that that's available now. Yeah, I would like him and I would really like well is God's doing with the other the Internet because I still fat. In fact, we I was doing autograph signing this not a three for years will not use record time, but it was in Virginia.
I'm doing autograph signing the Virginia got I got the total package. Lex Luther sit next to me and and and were to sign in way and also in this long line also and I hear this fluent Russian right and I'm like oh dear Lord. I'm not Russian nor do I speak Russian I threw a few phrases and words out. That would convince someone like yourself, Lori, but I really was from Russia and sought out like will move.
I ignore her, she would just go away ride it to something else. Fluid in Russia like she's not going anywhere have to address this my look up we make our contribution contact. She got little daughter with her. She's glowing right she's like glowing sheet. When I look at her. She says something else and Russian not have understood not one thing she said yet and I look at her and I go ma'am ma'am I go I'm not really from Russia that was like a character that I portrayed in Lori. She goes from this glow. She takes about 1/2 a step back from a glow to us to a scowl as she so your not really from Russia go ma'am it was just a character that I portraiture. I drove three hours here to meet you know because my good buddy Alexis just started up though nope nope he sure is that unlike I got here, how the picture started up Lex and Ed and I like them so I'm I'm subsided. She was so mad was she never did. She got online took her daughter never got an autograph six hours and found I know she was that bad right someone all my muscle but as far as mastering that I mean I took about six months before ever smoke a quote word of English on a television interview six months. I was just destroying guys every week without saying a word and in the process. Though I got I got a Russian back in the day cassette tape Russian workbook. I learned to sign my name, and Russian. I took it serious. Obviously as you believe it, and many others did right. I then retired before I even realized that you were from Minnesota. Great yeah no properties. I did take it as a compliment and and and and and so six but six months really meant time to master.
Okay, I really was from there. How would this word sound. How would that word sound. How would a sentence sound. I'm not all that in the meantime and listen to some of the Russian cassette tape on learn to summon a journalist often and yeah it was you said you were one of the better secrets of wrestling to show the with the Internet and all that back then so you know what time to be an angry aggression in America like perfect timing. It was Cold War era and believe it or not.
I believe there were six different times starting with the Great American – Rick four 1985 the first fan they got over the barricade actually in the ring and got his hands on me now. The other five times my radars up. My intent is rubs nobody else ever got their hands on me, but five other guys tried to get their hands on the right and just that did not like me. In fact, right the magazines right. One of the most well the number at one point the number one most hated guy professional wrestling so tell me you are doing your job well was take that as a complement will limit.
Let me get you your second question want to say that one from last it's a great question. You said last year 2020 for everyone was was a very real was a very challenging year you are you are spot on your church is still struggling either to open or or stay open to hold the tendons and I like what he said we need Jesus.
Now more than than ever. And boy of if that's not true that that is for real and is Christ's Christ followers.
How do we reach the lost was was part one question, how do we help them establish a relationship with Jesus, especially during this quarantine or during the soul craziness is going on two really great questions, let me address the first one. How how do we reach the lost. I mean certainly for me. You know, as an evangelist.
It's part of my calling as part of what I do right when I go out traveling and ministering churches in it and door conference is like I'll be in a bead on Pesek near Pensacola, Florida due to men's conference that you can't skulk old man camp with Lex Luger Tecumseh's call man up conference right so so mom in front of a lot of guys and really challenging and you know in the wonder they have a relationship with Jesus. Secondly, if they don't, you know, to make that decision to do that before the person is not like me like say an evangelist or just you know, maybe a marketplace person or a mom recent raising children. Are you I think for me, one of the best ways to do that to to reach lost his is just to to be growing and maturing in our own relationship with Jesus and then in doing that just being salt and light to everybody we come in contact with. Whether it's the raising of children.
Working out in the marketplace with coworkers running to someone at the gas station walking through the grocery line and being kind to the couch or the guy checking out Dragon your groceries or checking out are you know just being us being salt and light just just living it so not a silly preaching to somebody else. Although that can be a part of it.
I like what the other was that this court I believe is Sir Francis of Assisi was quoted as saying this at all times preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. And when necessary use words in the Bible, to the point being, just live it just just live it and then in the face in this eventually go also different about you or how come you know you don't react at work. When this happens, are you just you respond, but you don't get upset or you don't blow up or you'll cut somebody out or whatever.
Well, you know well I'm glad you asked.
You know ahead at lunch break and we can assure that story with you and and then the system just sharing your story. I like to call your story, your testimony right were known by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony and so is just bearing good fruit to the people that you're around I think is one of the best ways we can reach the lost. Just being authentic, being real and showing you know your love for Jesus through your actions even more so than your words is that that that helpful extremely helpful yeah quick on church that I belong to wait all week in January every week of prayer every night we come together we pray night we were kind like thing that we praying like what we Americans see that their you know what direction you know that I not exactly what I like. It all starts with ourselves and we can expect other people to know that the car not exhibiting his lot great other Dell's good exactly exactly what we are talking about last night that that's that's good in his first help them establish you know that relation with Jesus whether whether through the quarantine or anything else again the word that comes to mind there. Lori is discipleship discipleship.
I heard recently of a good friend mind pastor friend of mine and in formal South Carolina thought it heard an interview with Rev. Billy Graham one times, and if you know there was something you could change Rev. Graham you know what, what would be something you do different in and believe what he said was I would had more disciples and less converts more disciples and less converts you'll certainly want to see everyone. You'll get converted come to come to know Jesus in a personal way. Write a personal relationship but but but that's only that's just the beginning then then you like a newborn infant. You don't leave it to fend for yourself right. You gotta nurture that infant you got a take care, raise it and hold the same thing with it with a brand-new believer in Jesus we got we got a disciple them, people we gotta nurture them disciple them and help them establish that new relationship that they just formed with Jesus and and that's something I believe is incredibly lacking in the church as a as a whole and something that the church as a whole needs to begin, especially in today's time.
Start focusing on more and more. Amen. Angry. Well let's you go here, just a second Lloyd by preach. I appreciate you Matt, thanks for being on the questions and answers Q&A with with with coal off today in the course of this can be great because you know the shows call this time to man up, but it's always good to have a female voice on that show to you know I think absolutely and help helpless up.
