  • Volleyball and Jesus - What better combo is there?!

    Well Folks, Day #3 is in the books!

    Today was another jam packed day full of volleyball and Jesus - is there a better combo out there?!

    This morning we started putting into practice the things we learned yesterday about quiet times and spending time alone with Jesus every morning. It was a great start to the day! After breakfast, we had the privilege of hearing a devotional about the Great Commission from the President of Athletes in Action, Mark Householder.

    The rest of the morning and afternoon consisted of two more practices and a session on how to share your testimony in a different culture. The team is hard at work crafting and preparing their testimonies to share in Thailand! Please join us in praying that the Lord will do great work through His Holy Spirit and these testimonies.

    The day concluded with a special evening with Ashley and Amber's house church. They welcomed our team with loving arms, encouraging and praying for us before we head overseas.

    The Lord is already doing mighty works in and through our team and we are SO excited to see what He does next!!

  • Day 3 - Training Camp

    Section: Soccer

    2017 Teams: Soccer - Spain Men

    AIA Men's Soccer Spain

      The second day of training for the AIA Men’s soccer Spain trip went very well.  Commencing the day, we had a devotional discussing the Great Commission, and the significance it bears in our lives.  Following that we had a training session where we worked through some formations and tactics.

    The afternoon consisted of some personal testimony practice, along with discussing the second AIA principle, which is motivation.  To clarify, motivation is referring to our personal motivations as athletes and humans in sport and everyday life.  Essentially, are we living to glorify ourselves, or to glorify our God and creator?  We were blessed afterward to receive a meal and time of worship from a local church in Xenia.  

    To end the day with a bang, we won our first soccer match of the trip against a local club team.  We played a little different than normal, in order to help us continue to learn to work well together as a team.  In explanation, we played three thirty minute periods, and gave on call free kicks to both sides.  The most encouraging aspect of the game was the attitude of all of our players, as it was clear that each and every person was not playing for themselves today.  While such a victory is exciting, and we hope to win our games in Spain, we remain true to the fact that we are traveling to spread the Gospel to the people of Spain and glorify God in doing so.
