How Your Prayers Are Being Answered
This week’s team is doing sports evangelism in Barahona. Our sport is baseball. Yes, that’s about the biggest thing in the Dominican Republic. MLB is populated by a growing number of Dominican players. Today we were blessed to see some of our prayers answered. And today could be just the beginning!
Blessings in Barahona
In Such a Marvelous Mystery, I asked you to pray for a harvest. We raked the field today, played baseball, shared hugs, handed out water, gave away shoes and gave away gloves. But we also gave away something much more valuable. We shared the Gospel. You expected that. But I want you to know what God did with what we shared. At least 36 young men and boys gave their lives to Christ today. It’s good to learn one’s sport and play with greater skill. It’s even better to learn your place in eternity!
I know our week is not over. But if it was, it has already been an awesome week. Thank you for sending, equipping, and praying. It has been worth it all. And there are more answers on the way. I arranged a meeting for Tiko and some of the folks that can provide answers for him. That is already going very well. So, keep praying and we’ll keep sharing how our Father answers for His glory.
Soli Deo Gloria!
Picture Note: This little guy came with his Dad, one of the Dominican coaches. He was up on top of the dugout waving at me. I just couldn’t resist. I got his picture. He was happy about that!
