Colombia Sports & Youth Ministry: Aug. 4 - 11, 2021 (2290)
Trip Focus: Soccer Camp & Youth Ministry.
The team will fly from San Antonio to Medellin, Colombia. While in country, the team will serve with our missionary partner, Juan Bravo and his ministry, Conectar Global, ministering through their Sport & Youth ministry. The team will help run a Youth Soccer Camp and Bible outreach to youth living in the poor neighborhoods of Medellin. The camp will take place outside the city on a large ranch. Many of these children have not been outside the city or exposed to the love of Jesus. There will also be ministry activities with youth in the city of Medellin. Regardless of your experience or language knowledge, God can use your spiritual gifts to serve people in need and build His kingdom in Colombia. You will also make amazing new friendships with our Colombian counterparts.
