“I realized how dramatically sport can facilitate growth and change. It’s a tool God provided me that had the capacity to help me uniquely make a difference in the world.” (Jessica)
Right now, a team of collegiate women basketball players is spreading fire seeds in the spiritual darkness of Europe, specifically in the Czech Republic. They are participating in pre-season conditioning, on-the-court drills, and scrimmages with professional women players from the Czech Republic. They will have Bible studies and a great deal of hang out time together. You can join this team over the week by lifting them, and all those they interact with, in prayer. You can follow the team’s blog here.
Your prayers will have a vital role, not just in the lives of the Czech players and coaches attending the project, but also in the lives of girls who comprise the AIA mission team. Don’t take my word for it; take a minute to hear from Jessica and others who shared from the 2010 project there.
God has a unique plan for each of those attending the 2012 project, just as you saw in this short snippet from two years ago. God is truly working in the most difficult parts of the world to reconcile this world to Himself again. See the bigger picture at Breaking through the Spiritual Darkness.
Thanks for your partnership in our ministry with AIA’s Global Sports Teams. My role includes facilitating communications and logistical support for projects just like this one around the world.
