    Philippines Basketball: Training Camp is Over and We're Off!

    Training camp came to a close today, and all of us can agree that we have never experienced anything quite like it. It is absolutely amazing what God was able to do in just four days. We serve an incredible Father.

    The way that the team was able to come to every practice with such energy and enthusiasm speaks volumes about the group that God put together. We played together in a way that is characteristic of a team that has been together for months, and that chemistry doesn’t stop when practice ends. The past four days we have built relationships with each other that go beyond what we do on the court, and will undoubtedly last beyond our trip. We have had so much fun together. From playing Ping-Pong, golf, and four square, to sharing life with each other in deep spiritual conversations, we have truly been experiencing the joy of brotherhood that Jesus has for us.

    In just a few hours, we will be taking flight to head over to Manila, the capital of the Philippines. We are all extremely excited to go share the love of Jesus with the people there, and use our sport to be a light and to worship the Lord. Many of us are unsure what to expect; however, we are putting all of our trust in God because there is no doubt that each and every one of us is on this trip for a reason, and He is going to work in us and through us in a way that only He can. Please pray for us as we embark on our adventure. We greatly appreciate your prayers of safety, courage, and blessing! We will do our best to continue to give you an update nearly every day, so you can follow us on the journey that God is taking us on. Thanks again for your prayers, God bless!
