Your quick fire WSM news - On the run!
Partnering. Planting. Proclaiming.
Thanks for standing with us in prayer, the Lord is doing some really great things - to Him be the glory! Here is some recent news and important prayer requests.
Kenyan Sports Clinic
On June 25th WSM Kenya reached 140 children in Nairobi in partnership with a local church. An amazing time of ministry and relationship building resulted in 43 children deciding to follow Jesus.
WSM Bristol hosted the National Christian Cricket Festival on June 26th. Nine 8 a side teams competed from all over the country where the gospel was shared for the invited guest players.
WSM Bristol & Bath partnered on June 12th to stage a 1 day event in partnership with Frome churches for Pentecost. Many families attended and enjoyed a great tome of games and fun together along with the great news about Jesus.
Youth Leadership Development
On 2nd June, twenty Young Leaders between the ages of 13-17 enjoyed a day of mentoring and skills development in Bath. These young people are being equipped to 'lead now' by serving and reaching younger children on summer sports camps and influencing peers back in their own schools.
Community Tournaments continue to impact
During June and into July, WSM Bath staged adult football, netball, golf and touch rugby tournaments; they also continued to develop a football tournament to reach teenagers. At each event a local believer shared his or her testimony. Helped by the environment created, one man chose to recommit to Jesus and get baptised.
June Sports Camp
50 children were impacted and reached for Jesus in Bristol during the school half term holiday. Quality coaching and a spirit led curriculum saw a number of the children begin a new journey with Jesus.
On Your Marks Tour sweeps the UK
As the churches response to the 2012 Games, 'More Than Gold' embarked on a 20 region tour of the country to inspire and equip churches to 'get ready' for opportunities that the games present. WSM served by presenting the sports mission element regularly. Pray that many churches would 'run with it' and that as a ministry WSM can encourage the formation of many Community Sports Teams who can then deliver a variety of sports mission.
Please could you PRAY for ministry projects and needs that are coming up:
- Get Sported Summer Camps. 4 weeks of outreach to the unchurched begins today in Bath. In total we are running 6 camps that should impact over 300 children in 3 different towns and cities. Please pray for anointing, great attendance, relationships to
