Quote of the Day:  “Play keeps us vital and alive. It gives us an enthusiasm for life that is irreplaceable. Without it, life just doesn’t taste good”  -  Lucia Capocchione

There is no way to adequately describe the pure joy that came from these boys as they donned their new uniforms.  They have never had any new clothes and never had a uniform of any kind--too poor.  To have uniforms that match their favorite English football clubs (Manchester United and Arsenal) is ecstasy of the highest order.  The pastor keeps the uniforms and only provides them when they come to the church to practice and to play and only to those whose church attendance is excellent.  As a form of evangelism for young boys, this is second to none.  A Baptist church in South Carolina provided these twelve uniforms and some shoes.  We need at least another dozen uniforms and shoes which will cost us about $200 is anyone wants to help us bring more children into the church to hear of Jesus and His love.  John's idea for goals and a field at every church is catching on quickly.  Pastor Festo at Karikakari is next on the list and has already staked out the field.  As the money appears, the goals, balls, and uniforms appear.  What a blessing and joy to be a part of this.  While one team will lose, everyone wins no matter on which side they play.  Gotta love these kids.  See the individual teams by clicking on the picture.
