As we share the gospel in the valley, we try to use every opportunity available to share the word of God. Over the years, we have seen that Sports is one of the events that bring communities together. People are willing to travel long distances either by water or road to be where the tournament is. In May 2018, we introduced a Soccer Tournament under the name Lulangilo. Lulangilo is a local word which means hope. As we gather villagers together for sports, our heart is to share Jesus. As the winning team celebrate their victory, we celebrate with the angels and God in heaven over those who through sports have an opportunity to hear the Gospel and make a decision to live for God. This tournament takes place twice in a year to give each time an opportunity to fight for the small trophy we bought as well as other prizes. They love it! These two tournaments bring together not just the players, but their wives, children and their community leaders too! They are big events which everyone looks forward to. The more we meet with them, the more we have time to bring them together and share the gospel. Before the match starts, we have time to share the word of God with them. Please pray for this ministry that many will be touched by the Love of God.
