For ten days in January, AIA held the 1st Annual Athletes in Action Golf tournament in Kenya. (Golfing for God in Kenya) Our goal was to invite people from all walks of life to be reconciled to God and to receive the life which will change generations to come.
The tournament hosted 75 Kenyan golfers. Former PGA Pro Wally Armstrong (Bio Video) was the featured instructor and speaker who shared his life in Christ. The outing included planning for a youth golf organization whose purpose will be to combine golf instruction and spiritual development through the Kenya Golf Union for youth in the Kibera Slum of Nairobi. A golfing clinic was held for 45 youth and adults. The young man pictured (left) with Philip was a “diamond in the rough”. They spent time on the range talking about golf, life, and what it means to know God. Phillip was moved by the young man’s eagerness to soak up their teaching about golf and spiritual life.
Please pray for the staff and volunteers who will be developing this program to give eternal life, hope, and purpose to youth who live in the Kibera Slum. Resources for materials including golf clubs will be critical in developing this program. If you would like to help, please contact us.
