11 Mar Church team to Northern Ireland
Supported by a mission team from a Church in the USA we ran fun games, sports and competitions in 10 local primary schools over the course of a week. We also got to share a Bible story with the children – all 2500 of them!
We also invited the children to a club (VBS) we were running in the evenings of that week in partnership with a local Church. Over 110 children turned up each evening. Over the course of the week the children learned about who Jesus is, what He has done for them and who they are in Him. It was wonderful to see 14 children, several who were brothers and sisters, give their lives to Jesus on the Thursday evening. It was a real privilege to play a tiny part in this and to introduce them to the Church’s children’s worker.
On the Friday evening we ran a Family Fun Night in the Church and it was amazing to see the Church filled with over 350 children, parents, grandparents and neighbours, all fully engaged, having fun and interacting with our team and the Church members.
The Minister said after the week,
That was another amazing week with Salt Factory Sports and their team. We absolutely love what they do, how they do it and the fact that they want our members to be fully involved. And to see some new, young believers is just incredible – we will now do our best to integrate them into our Church family.
