Yep, you read that title correctly. So you’re thinking, what in the world does kickball and missionary training have to do with each other. Our ministry here is high intensity student involvement through E-LINC*. As an E-LINC Management Team (EMT) we work towards connecting our students and staff through both formal and informal ways. Friday Sept 9th we coordinated an amazing kickball tournament, running 3 games simultaneously with single elimination. We had 12 teams from our E-LINC small groups. The enthusiasm and competition was awesome! Afterwards there was a massive potluck were we all had more time to connect with each other.
One aspects of E-LINC is our students connecting with an Individual mentor/coach from our missionary staff at the MTC. During the time a team was not playing our new students were afforded ample opportunities to make connections and get to know some of the staff available for this vital role. Continue praying for Cheryl and I as we minister together with a great team, working towards mentoring new missionary candidates. Our goal is for them to succeed on the mission field. Your partnership through prayer, encouragement and finances help us succeed in this goal.
