The countdown begins!
We are just 20 days away from our team arriving in Puerto Rico.
Approximately 30 students and 20 staff/intern members will be traveling to San German, Puerto Rico. We all will be staying in dorms at the local college campus as students arrive on May 21st and will depart June 5th. Our goal is to not only equip the students in Puerto Rico with the gospel, but also share the love of Christ to everyone that we encounter!
We hope that you follow us on this journey as we begin updating the blog more and more regularly. Please be keeping us in your prayers!

Basketball Coaches - Guatemala
As we move into the final week of planning and preperation for our project to Guatemala, please lift our team up in prayer.
These are our major requests:
- For endurance, wisdom, strength and energy as Brad, Austin, Ed, and I will have daily responsibility for teaching these coaches the game of basketball while also helping them grow as people.
- For good health and safety in travel.
- That we would work diligently and pray fervently for these coaches as we work with them and love them well for Jesus sake.
- For God to work powerfully through our team as we share testimonies of our faith in Christ, lead Bible studies, and present the Gospel to these coaches.
Thank you for praying. Please feel free to ask others to pray as well.
- Adam for the team
