We are raising money to cover the transportation costs of heading back to Herford, Germany for a baseball camp. This gives us the opportunity to foster relationships with young people.
Thanks to your support, last year, we had the blessing to build relationships with kids to talk about Christ in Herford, Germany. During this trip, we worked as coaches for a baseball camp that introduced the story of Jesus to many in the community. We have been prayfully considering making the trip again and this year, we feel that Christ is calling us to be on mission. The trip will be July 13-July 22.
So, why a baseball camp?
(1) To help build a bridge into the community connecting the church
(2) It will provide for some interests and needs for the youth
(3) Build relationships to talk about God
(4) For the church to grow in their faith, not just give money to missions, but go on mission
(5) We can encourage our youth to talk about God in their daily life
(6) To make a difference in our city of Herford.
(1) Only 3% of the German population have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
(2) There are churches in Northern Germany that are trying to reach out to their community. This trip serves as an important tool in strengthening the churchs in an area that has little evangelical witness.
(3) The methodology of utilizing a baseball camp for 8-18 year old German youth has proven to be ground-breaking in its effectiveness. Many German youth and adults are being reached by this approach that otherwise may not have been reached.
(4) The language barrier is minimized by the English language skills of the German youth and the ready availability of Christian German translators.
(5) The follow-up with the German people is insured by the committment of the church's follow up.
Why support us?
Last year was an amazing blessing for us and we're prayfully considering heading back to Germany! Last year, Adam gave his testimony to over 300 people and impacted many!
How can you support us?
First, you can pray. We need your prayers that Christ will provide financially. We also need your prayer for the hearts of those that may attend. If you feel that you're being called to give, I ask that you listen to God in that decision.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.
