Soccer Champions!!!

As the world is in the grip of Soccer / Football Fever at the moment (due to the 2010 World Cup currently being held in South Africa), we thought that you would be excited to hear that our Friendship Soccer Ministry is producing its own champions.

Our Friendship Soccer Club competes in a local competition every Saturday in Phnom Penh, and was recently crowned Champions after defeating the World Vision team in the grand final.

The Friendship Soccer Ministry ministers to young men, providing the opportunity to participate in a sport they love (which they couldn’t afford to do themselves), while also teaching them the Gospel and encouraging them that God has a great plan for their life.

Thanks to generous donations from our supporters overseas, this ministry is able to pay the pitch hire fees and equipment costs that these young men simply could not afford (and not all of the pitches have such lush green grass as the venue for the Grand Final!).

It provides encouragement, friendship, spiritual input, and a sense of pride and achievement to all who are blessed to participate.

Praise God for the new found hope and pride that we can see in the faces of every member of the team. Please pray for these young men! And please also pray that God would provide more consistent funding for such a valuable ministry to the future fathers and leaders of Cambodia.

Who knows………… maybe one day we will see Cambodia competing in the FIFA World Cup!
