EGYPT

We recently heard from “Robbie” about the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. He wrote: "We are grateful that God has put all of us here for 'such a time as this.' A time in which we are perfectly placed to share the hope of the Good News, shining even brighter for the people around us, offering our love and support. The past 3 months have been a huge blessing to us as family. God provided the opportunity to invest more time in His Word and to enjoy each other. We had the time to play more with our daughter and explore new avenues of creativity.”

 

It’s beautiful to read about “Robbie’s” perspective about how he is growing through the pandemic. Everything shut down in Egypt on March 10th. Robbie and his team had to cancel dozens of camps, programs and international teams, but they have made the shift to online training and ministry. He is overseeing several leadership developments by Zoom as well as evangelistic and discipleship programs.

PRAYER FOCUS: Egypt
Pray for "Robbie", his family, and his team to continue to grow deep in their relationship with one another and with God. 
 Pray that God would provide all that is needed financially, as this has been a difficult time with major loss of income. Pray for God's provision and for wisdom with the use of limited resources. 
 Pray for creativity with online resources, Zoom discipleship groups, and online outreach to coaches and athletes.

NORTH AFRICA


CEI has partners focusing on sports outreach in North Africa. We’ve been able to send several teams and coaches over the years to help, but due to Covid-19 travel restrictions, we can’t send anyone this year.  However,  “Jeff” and his family and staff are hosting two sports camps in August: a baseball (and hopefully softball) camp from August 3-7 and a mixed baseball and basketball camp August 10-14.  Here’s an update from “Jeff”:

 
“We will have a number of local coaches working with us which will provide us with some unique opportunities. We currently have about 20 kids for baseball and 30 for basketball but I imagine we will see those numbers increase a bit over the next few weeks as summer schedules become clearer. The kids will represent a number of nationalities (American, Japanese, Chinese, the country in which I serve, etc.). It’s going to be hot but we will all survive.“   
 

The team is also seeing an increase in spiritual interest due to the pandemic!

Prayer Focus: North Africa
 Pray for the organization of these camps and for growing registrations.
 Pray for the relationships that will be built/fostered during this time.
 Pray for opportunities to share the Gospel as spiritual interest is being stirred up.
SOUTHEAST ASIA

   Our team met Se Yu, an Athletes in Action staff member in Southeast Asia, on a combined AIA-CEI project a few years back. When the world opens back up, we would love to send coaches to help him.  In the meantime, pray for Se Yu and his team of volunteers as they coach and reach out to sports academies.  Pray for creativity as they connect and disciple online in a country where the internet is sporadic, at best.   

   They also have some great news, as a young lady named Lisu is planning to join AIA staff with them.  She has been volunteering and has a passion to disciple female athletes.  Lisu has experienced many roadblocks to joining ministry--her family wanted her to stay with her training as a beautician and she had to wait a long time for approval from her church.  Despite the setbacks, she persisted and has been accepted to attend staff training.  Pray for God's provision as Lisu develops her ministry team.
