Our contact in North Africa reports that the August sports camps went well! The staff is working with locals to continue to provide training, mostly in baseball. Even though they can’t host groups or coaches from the US this year, they are still having an impact through sports!
Last month we received an invitation to help our partners in Guatemala. Due to Covid-19, much of their ministry opportunities have taken place virtually. They had been broadcasting Bible studies to athletes and coaches who would invite 3 or 4 friends to join them. As a result, Monterrey, Mexico, Santiago, Chile, Bogota Columbia, Lima, Peru, El Salvador were opening up sports ministries because of people who watched their live programs and had been inspired to develop the ministry in their countries. However, they had become limited on how many they could reach. So CEI sent them some funds so that they could increase their broadcasting abilities. Here's the latest from Cristobal:
"Ok...let me share that now we are broadcasting during this week 10 times!!!! 5 hours for our ministry with athletes and 5 hours for our ministry with university professors and students!!!!! Thank you so much for helping us make the difference in virtual world sharing the good news!!!"
PRAYER S'PORT: Continue praying for Cristobal and all our partners around the world who continue to share the good news of Jesus and make disciples via the virtual world.
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.
