Sports and Drama Team!
Today I went with the sports and drama team!
The morning started with Freddy, our translator, sharing his faith story. He talked about how he pushed God away for so long, but God and his brother never gave up on him. His brother was always inviting him to go to church. Finally he came and God saved him! Freddy said, don’t stop asking your friends to church and don’t stop talking with them about your faith.
Everything officially started at 9am with clinics and drills. The Christian coach from Ciudad Deseada (Desired City) Church in Malacatan kept saying, “Great players have great skills.” There were a lot of cone drills. Our team participated and helped with the clinic of over 140 boys and girls ages 12-18. They played a few games too and got beat. I think I was the weak link on the team and that was the reason for the losses. Ha! :/
At the end of the clinic the team performed the “Everything” drama. I was impressed by how much they had improved in just a week. Drew did a great job sharing his faith story too. One of the coaches from the church also shared a testimony about how his son recently and suddenly had died at the age of five. The other coach asked him why he was here at the clinic after such a tragedy. He responded by saying, “I love Jesus and I want all of you to love and follow him too!”
Thanks for all of your prayers,
Pictures to come later tonight!
