48 – 0, Not the Big Story!
Team USA’s on-the-field performance wasn’t the biggest story of game. Their off-the-field and between-the-whistle character was the true story. They helped Team China up after hits and always had a positive word for them. They slapped hands with kids and signed autographs. One of the more powerful moments came during halftime, though. Team USA invited Team China to meet up at midfield and prayed for them. The moment wasn’t planned. It was spurred on by an injury to one of Team China’s players.” (Team USA: Rock Stars for Christ)

This is just one post among over 700 to-date in 2016, from 35 mission projects on AIA’s Team blogs. “That the world may know” from John 17:23 is the heart of AIA’s Team Blogs’ purpose. We are called to “declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous deeds among all peoples.” (Psalm 96:3)
In order to accomplish God’s desire to share His marvelous deeds and the gospel, today’s reality requires us to do so digitally through websites and social media platforms. Our strategic opportunity is that the message can go directly to over 90% of those under 40 through their smart phones!
Thank you so much for your prayers and financial support that allow us to help lead these mission teams as they share their faith through projects around the world. You can also make a difference by helping us share what God is doing through our Basketball fall tour by following and sharing their project in your digital world today. Their project runs into early November and can be found at Here.
