Today marks the departure of the team from The Neighborhood Church in Littleton, CO as they head to Kenya to work with a couple of orphanages as highlighted in our original story. Pastor Mike Klassen reached out in late June to see if CrossTraining could help with some soccer equipment for the team to take to the children in the orphanage. With the help of local soccer club Colorado Storm – CrossTraining was able to deliver a lot of gear for the team to take with them.
The team had hoped to take six extra suitcases of supplies but their expectations were overwhelmed with the response. Director Kenney recalls the response when he pulled up to pick up the donations,
I think a few coaches said, “Good luck trying to make it all fit.”
In addition, CrossTraining, with part of the Timothy Project funds, donated some brand-new soccer balls and gave the team copies of The Prize: Under Pressure DVD to take with them and give to the orphanages and different churches while in Kenya. Pastor Klassen excitedly received the equipment on Tuesday for the team to pack and ready for their trip,
Make sure to pray for the team as they embark on the two-week trip and stay tuned for an update and pictures from the team’s time in country. You can access the team blog here.
