Sports Ambassadors

In December our return to Impfondo from Brazzaville was delayed for a few days.
The good part about that was that we had a chance to observe some of the pro-tour that Sports Ambassadors had in the Republic of Congo.

The Cuthbert family, from Northern Ireland, arranged and organized the tour.
The football (soccer players) who came were able to play in teams in Brazzaville and travel to other towns and villages, using sports to open doors for building relationships and sharing the good news.

Some of the action
Everyone wanted to talk to the players after the game.

Our CMA team in Brazzaville helped with logistics and translating.
Anne Stephens is helping to translate for the press interviews.
The Cuthbert family has now joined us in Impfondo, and we are looking forward to seeing their ministry grow and develop as they work with the local church to do sports ministry!
