At the recent global sports fall retreat, our team of thirty-four staff members celebrated how God was changing lives and touching hearts of people around the world. One example was the college student who described a tour’s impact on his life like this:
Imagine similar stories repeated after 33 mission projects with competitive teams and sports clinics through seven different sports in more than 20 countries! AIA offers uncommon opportunities for athletes to share their love of Jesus and sports through cross-cultural ministry. Each project enhanced opportunities for ongoing ministry through outreaches and humanitarian aid, and each one helped students learn to share their faith.
It was my (Rick’s) privilege to serve these teams by assisting their missions’ projects, running the AIA team blog site, and managing communication roles for global sports ministry. One of my latest projects was developing materials for our teams during our 2013 Fall Retreat mentioned above. To God be the Glory! Your prayers/support help make this happen!
