One of the greatest parts of AIA’s global projects is how many ways God’s love can be shown. During our East Africa 2011 project, His love was demonstrated in both words and actions. You might say God’s love materialized in a “concrete” form with the construction of a basketball court.
Now community, ministry, and sports activities that emphasize Christ will be available year round at this facility. Everyone in the area sees this as a gift that will greatly help in the development of their youth.
AIA also shared God’s love by sharing His word using the I’ve Got the Whole Bible in My Heart curriculum at the Soweto Academy. A week-long Bible overview was given to over 400 children. Each student was given his or her own copy of an NIV Bible. It was exciting that some of the children prayed to receive Christ as their Savior in the middle of a class period.
We give God the credit for all this project accomplished. It was a very challenging project, but became a huge answer to prayer for all those involved with the Global Team and Soweto Academy.
