“By God’s Grace, this team has shared the gospel with more people in two days than we are able to in a year!” – Ossman (Spanish church planter)
Spain – Ministering through Soccer
Sports Ambassadors and the women’s soccer team from the University of Northwestern Minnesota served in the northwestern Cordoba Province of Spain, where, roughly, only 10% of the population have heard the gospel. The team shared the gospel with students, soccer clubs, parents, and even town leaders. After a tournament, one of the players shared her testimony of God’s work in her life to the other teams. Many stopped to listen, including the town mayor who asked questions about her story the next day.
Taiwan – Love and Basketball
Nine men from a variety of backgrounds in ministry were unified by their love of Christ and of basketball. They came together as a team with Sports Ambassadors headed to Taiwan. This group, along with church leaders, set up 12 basketball games, four church services, and four classroom situations. They made the most of every moment for the gospel, and even made it on a news channel!
Pray with One Challenge
- The gospel work to bear fruit in Spain and Taiwan.
- For God’s work in local churches in Spain and Taiwan.
- For God to continue to work in the lives of both teams.
- For Pastor Amos Lim and Alex who are looking into planting a church in Taiwan this fall.
