One of the greatest rewards of serving in ministry is seeing first-hand the increased spiritual growth and maturity take place in young men. Jhon is perfect example of what the transforming power of Jesus Christ can do in the life of an at-risk teenager who admittedly was in a bad place when we met just two years ago. Now, seventeen years old, Jhon serves as a player and assistant coach with our FCA Baseball Academy in Cartagena, Colombia and desires to study Physical Education in College so that he can serve part-time with FCA once he graduates.
That’s an impressive turnaround for a kid that had never even worn a baseball glove. Please pray for Jhon and many others like him that we serve who don’t have the funds to go to college, yet are obedient to God, serving Him in their relationships, and in the fellowship of the church, and just want an opportunity to “get ahead in life.”
One of my ambitious goals is to raise funds for special leaders like Jhon to at-tend college who are also willing to serve through FCA once they graduate. If you would like to join me in that goal and invite others to do the same I would love to talk with you. Until then… On behalf of all the lives touched in these communities, our FCA Colombia-Venezuela-Ecuador Staff, and myself, thank you for the confidence you have put in us! Your prayers and financial support are a true blessing and make a significant impact. Be blessed!
