CrossTraining’s Timothy Project: The Mountain Springs Church team that traveled to Swaziland this month delivered support and encouragement to Coach Xolani Moyo and his soccer players in more ways than one.
This Timothy Project post is best told in pictures and thoughts shared by the team themselves.
“Xolani has a clear passion and vision for his sports ministry, Adventures in Missions. His excitement is contagious. Having the equipment (Timothy Project donations), especially the balls and jerseys, allowed him to better lead young men, and I can clearly see how the equipment allows Xolani’s sports ministry to be even more effective in changing the lives of young men in Swaziland.” shares one team member.
“Xolani’s sports ministry is establishing pride and leading young men in Swaziland, and the donation of sports equipment from The Timothy Project assisted Xolani with his mission.” says another team member.
Jones lead the team’s devotions for the day. He said, “During the practice, I was able to share from Romans 13:14, encouraging the young men to “Clothe themselves with the Lord Jesus Christ…” As the jerseys set them apart from the other team on the pitch, Jesus should set us apart from the world on AND off the pitch.”
Rick Clapp, founder and director of Beyond Survival, said as they came toward the end of the trip “Our hearts are full and heavy at the same time. We are exhausted, yet refreshed. We are poured out, yet overflowing.”
