Friday night the visiting team from Ft. Worth, TX went to a park a few blocks from the New Image Community Center and played basketball and volleyball for a couple hours with whomever was there. God provided a lot of kids and adults to be there and we were blessed with the opportunity to build some community awareness for the Saturday kids’ fair and for the community center in general. We handed out a number of small fliers with info about the community center and the Saturday event.
More teams will be coming in July and August and we’ll be back at the park. Even though the teams will be comprised of different people, it will still give us more opportunities to build up a positive rapport and hopefully some trust. Ultimately, we need more full-time workers here to touch lives in a more significant way. It takes TIME to do this. Much more than short-term missionaries will have. Pray for more full-time missionaries and for believers and churches in the USA to continue supporting full-time missionaries. The harvest is ripe but… (you know the rest, right?).
