The kids in the neighborhood love to come and play football on our compound. Since we received a few One World Footballs...indestructible, nerf-like, solid-foam balls, we've been able to use our entire compound as a playing field. We no longer have to worry about those pesky sharply thorned hedges that do a great job of keeping bad guys out and eating footballs for dinner.
The other night I took a video of the kids playing. As you can see there is a LOT of bantering in Lumasaba (the local tribal language) and a LOT of interesting objects to avoid including, but not limited to: trees, a banda, a banana garden, a volleyball net and an unfortunate tire swing at about 00:35. (Sorry, Max...way to sacrifice for your team).
Many of these kids have become our dear dear friends and we continually pray that as they grow they will become dear friends to Jesus. I am ever struck with how much Satan hates this aspect of our ministry here though. So thanks for praying with us and for them...they truly are the church of the not-so-distant future.
