JL's Journal

Dear Friends and Family of NDI,

Merry Christmas to you and your family.  Like me, you are probably in some degree of preparation for the celebration of this glorious event.  And like me, you all may be struggling with keeping everything in perspective and reminding yourselves that Jesus is the reason for the season.  Let’s keep working on that!

J.L. asked me to write this special prayer letter for the next phase of his 20 day trip to Africa.  He has just finished assisting with the sports’ camp in South Horr, northern Kenya, with our long-time partner, Stakwell Yurenimo.  Hundreds of players from at least 10 tribes gathered for a week of competition in soccer, basketball and volleyball.  Besides providing food and accommodations for the teams and coaches, Stakwell took advantage of the wonderful opportunity for evangelism, as well as lessons in sportsmanship, HIV-Aids education and tribal reconciliation. Look for J.L.’s report on this annual December event soon.
