All around the world, sports plays an important role in the lives our young people. They like to watch sports and play sports. In Haiti, soccer and basketball are extremely popular. We have had teams come to Haiti to simply play sports with the young people and have a great time. We were privileged to have the superstar from the Indiana Pacers, George Hill, come to conduct a basketball clinic. He had a tremendous impact on over 100 kids.
But we are looking for mission teams to come to NVM to conduct organized and formal sports clinics. The young people are hungry to not only learn individual skills, but also how to play the game. They need to learn strategy and to become better team players. They of course need Jesus in their lives as well, and to learn more about what the Bible has to say about how they should be living their lives.
If you have experience in organizing sports clinics and a heart for working with young people, we want to hear from you. We believe this is one of the best ways to reach the young people in Haiti, and ultimately change Haiti for the better.
