For the Timothy Project: Senegal 2016 Final Update spring has been exciting time. The Center in Senegal has seen tremendous growth in the soccer program they’re building. The Center and its team members have been working hard to provide structured and well-run soccer clubs to the children both locally and in surrounding communities.
This April, the Center hosted a tournament in St. Louis, Senegal. Over 80 children participated in the all-day tournament. These children came from The Center’s kid’s clubs, surrounding neighborhoods and even many boys from off the streets.
Hosting tournaments to reach more children (ages 3-18) has been a deep desire of the team members. This tournament was not the first this spring and hopefully only one of many in the coming months. The team has been able to use donations from the Timothy Project as awards, tournament handouts and even as team jerseys. One team member commented,
Our team struggles to obtain finances to acquire soccer equipment. We gather what we can, but it is not much. The donations that recently arrived from CrossTraining, the jerseys and equipment, is such a blessing. God has grown this part of the ministry in such a way that they are now at the point of moving forward into a large-scale soccer ministry.
Please continue to keep the team in Senegal, the Center and their growing soccer program in your prayers. May God’s greatest blessings flow into this place.
