Nicaragua Soccar Camp - 25 Saved
We just did a one week indoor soccer tournament where we had 36 local teams playing. The gospel was shared with street kids and youth during the tournament. We shared refreshments with the players and even sandwich at the final games at the end of the week. The winning teams had to come to a youth church service at our church to receive their trophies where a plan of salvation was presented and 25 street kids prayed to receive Christ. We have found out tournaments are very effective for the kingdom. The reason we didn't have more teams was because we limited the number that could register. We could have had a lot more teams. This is something the Lord is laying on my heart to do at least every three months in different areas. I'm telling you it's so easy to get them to play soccer and then share the gospel, but we need the resources to buy trophies, indoor soccer balls, pay referees, buy refreshments etc. This would be something great to do when we have a team here to do missions.
