For several years we have run a weekend sports activity for young people with the help of the SportsReach team. This year we’re not having a weekend event but we do have a visit from some of the team at one of our Friday Supper Evenings – on Friday, 20th March.
Last month we had an excellent evening with Jack and Isa Douglas, and were enthralled by their presentation of the many years they spent as missionaries, literacy workers and Bible translators with a remote tribe in Papua New Guinea (PNG). Then on Thursday, 5th March, we were greatly privileged to learn more about the lives of evangelical churches in the Chin region of Myanmar (Burma) direct from Dr Timothy Wang, of the Dai tribe, leader of a theological education programme, and translator of the Bible into one of the local tribal languages.
We’re equally looking forward to learning more on Friday about how the SportsReach team have been serving God both in this country and abroad since they last spoke to us, bringing the Gospel to young people through the medium of sport.
6:30 pm – Pie, peas and trifle – plus an interesting talk on serving God through sport.
