Last year, some Koti leaders and I had a vision to reach the local town youth for Jesus by creating a soccer team. Our vision was to train together throughout the week to build relationships, eat, share the Word, and pray together on match days. This was such a successful model that now, one year later, we have three soccer teams in the city and five in other zones. Throughout this outreach, many of these Muslim youth have become part of our Tarikhi Ya Haaki community (services, Bible studies, and events). They would normally stay away from what they would perceive as “Christian church”.
We have also managed to partner with organisations from the outside, in the United Kingdom (Kit Aid) and New Zealand, to provide soccer kits for our teams. This has been a huge provision!
Our prayer for 2018 is that many will cross over into our community of faith and follow Jesus!
