What an wonderful afternoon we had spending time with the "Ubon Spirit Football Academy". First off all we want to bring a BIG THANKS to our friends Francois and Marietjie de Lange from South Africa taking the initiative to connect Frontida Outreach with Living Ball. Francois and Marietjie, thank you for your participation, love and care for reaching the lost with the Gospel in so many ways. We love, honor and appreciate you.
Then to Living Ball South Africa. We are sure you do know what MASSIVE contribution your organisation are making to share the Gospel all over the world. Thank you so much for your contribution, participation and more important, your love for God and His Kingdom.
The MESSAGE of the TRUTH is clear.
2 Corinthians 5:17 - Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, old things have passed away, and look, new things have come
This small football academy is called "Ubon Spirit". Somsak Sufaan took the initiative as God led him to start the academy. Somsak is also a gifted musician teaching the unprivileged playing various music instruments.
A new player to the academy . . . what a striker she is (smile)
We had the opportunity to share what Living Ball is all about and also shared some Word from God to the young players. We love sharing the Gospel to youth as we always look back on how "lost" we were when we were kids.
. . . and the striker handing out some gift packs to. Multi talented striker if you ask me :)
Seeds of the Good News has been shared - thumbs up . . . . and we pray that the Holy Spirit will let grow according to His will.
"No coach, I don't want to play football now. I first want to read about Jesus Christ"
We prepared the gift packs for the academy. Included is a animation version telling the story of the Bible. The book is called "Good and Evil" by Michael Pearl. The book is translated into Thai language and is a great tool to use sharing the Gospel.
We had a great time and in two weeks we will visit Somsak's other academy sharing the Gospel and hand out some gifts with Living Ball etc. The academy is in Amnat Charoen which is about 110km from Sisaket.
