The days have been full.
In this part of the world, the sun is up at 4:30 A.M. It is not dark until 10:00 P.M. In between, our team works hard. Results are already in evidence. God is the doer. We are the tools in His hands. It is hard to express the joy of seeing people pulling together across nationalities, cultures, and languages in pursuit of our shared goal of making disciples of Jesus who make more disciples.
Following breakfast together, Bible story training begins at 9:00 A.M. It lasts four hours. So far this week we have learned the first two accounts in our Stories of God series. Breaking each story into bite-sized pieces, the team we have assembled is now able to teach them to others. We have all learned the most important characters and events of the Old Testament and the life of Messiah Jesus. With one voice, the keywords ring out in unison. Sotvorenie (Creation), Grehopadenie (Fall), Potop (Flood), Narody (Nations). The accompanying hand-signs are now executed crisply and confidently.
What we are learning together in the morning has immediate application after lunch. At 3 P.M., about 40 children arrive at Ukraine Christian Sport Academy to participate in a week-long camp. Engagement activities led by the coaches lead to opportunities to teach Bible stories to the campers (ages 5 – 14).
It has been amazing to see the excitement from the coaches as their players listen attentively and participate with questions and comments.
U.C.S.A. currently serves about 100 children on their soccer teams. They have a small field for children’s games. It is covered with a tent for inclement weather. But the area is too small for older children or adult usage. A new field is under construction so they can accommodate up to 300 more players, both youth and adults.
The total cost of this field is $100,000. When it is completed, three times the number of children currently involved Will be able to be served. I am asking you personally to consider partnering with Ukraine Christian Sport Academy to complete the construction of this new field.
Every dollar Disciple Daily received that is designated for this project will be sent to U.C.S.A. No part of your donation will be retained by Disciple Daily.
