From Matthew 28:19a
Thankfully, Covid-19 restrictions have been less severe for many of our partner teams in different parts of Africa enabling Jesus' great commission to continue.
On Boxing Day and also on January 6th in Burundi, community soccer projects reached 4,253 people with 1,483 of them choosing to begin following Jesus. 70 precious souls also testified to receiving physical healing when prayed for.
Glory to God!
In Uganda, a former Muslim family of 5 heard the great news about Jesus through a community sports project, choosing to follow Him and are now being discipled as a part of a local church.
Back in another region of Burundi, youth related soccer outreaches have seen many young people impacted; one of the leaders, John says this:
"210 of the new believers are being discipled in different local churches in their area where they are living. Our own church is growing in number because of the fruit of sport ministry. Many youth who were once into bad things when we met them on the soccer fields are now serving in the church. Before they were thieves & alcoholics, but today some of them are singers in the church and others are serving in different areas of the church."
