These three words are a glimpse of the emotions we have experienced this past week during our third annual Sports Bible Camp. Each morning for four days, more than 70 teenagers as players, 18 Agutaynen believers as coaches, and 8 Americans visiting from the States as helpers, gathered together for a time of studying the Bible and building on their skills in volleyball and basketball.
This year’s theme was Olympics. We made an Olympic flag with five rings (similar to the Wordless Book). Each color ring was taught upon and a clear Gospel message was presented. The afternoon of the fourth day was filled with games with balls and water balloons for the younger children, and lots of candy brought by the American team as prizes. Each of the kids and each of the players received a bracelet of the five colors, which was provided by one of our churches in Michigan.
The last day culminated with a clear evangelistic message taught by an Agutaynen believer, followed by championship games in volleyball and basketball, and the awarding of medals and trophies to the highest point earners and MVPs of the games. All in all, God’s Word was shared clearly with about 70 teens, over 100 younger children, and nearly 200 adults. God is amazing!!
Please be praying that God’s Word will not return void, and that more Agutaynens will come to know Jesus as their Savior, for God’s honor and glory.
