Each week, the lure of soccer, or football as it is called here, entices numerous young boys on the brink of manhood into our yard. Often, they will start lining up at our gate two hours before we welcome them in. The majority of these young boys do not have any positive male influence in their lives. They come to play soccer and then stay for our weekly children’s Bible study. They leave with God’s love for them showing in the smiles on their faces. These 9- to 13-year-old boys already face many temptations as they basically take care of themselves each day.
Pray that these boys – hungry for a father figure – will learn about God, the ultimate Father as they come each week to the Good News Club. Please pray Micah 6:8 over these boys–”He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Pray that they will continue to come each week to see God’s love in action and hear what the Father has to say to them. We wait with great expectation to see how the Lord will work in the lives of these young men, the future of their country.
