Kicking for Christ

Youth Soccer Evangelism Camps
by Brad Graber

An exciting movement involves soccer as a way to communicate The Gospel and connect with young people in the Congo. This idea started during the Centennial celebration of AIMM, held at Tshikapa in 2012 when Robert Irundu met Dwight Short. Together they introduced the evangelistic soccer clinics.

Since that time Robert has taken this idea to many areas of Congo with incredible success. He continues to provide leadership for future projects. You can view a video of this work at:

Eight Successful Soccer Camps Held Since 2012:
• Tshikapa (at the 2012 celebration of AIMM)
• Mukedi
• Nyanga
• Mbuji Mayi
• Ilego
• Gungu
• Kahemba
• Ndjoko Punda

Hope for Congo’s goal:
Raise additional money for “Kicking for Christ” to reach more young people
$4,000 can reach as many as 4,000 youth for Christ

Opportunities for your involvement in these Soccer Camps:
• Say YES to help Robert financially with one of the venues this coming year
• Say YES to possibly take a team of young adults to the Congo to help with this ministry

It is only through your generous donations that Hope for Congo can continue to come along side those in Congo who wish to reach the next generation for Christ.

Your donations are tax-deductible. With your help we can be more strategic in our gospel outreach among the youth and follow up more effectively with discipleship efforts.

Designate your donation to: Hope 4 Congo and indicate “Kicking for Christ”
Monies sent to our general fund will be applied where needed.

Thank you, Brad. Next week we will share an exciting strategic initiative to impact eight regional communities in Congo’s West Kasai province.

This is an effort to bring together several faith-based organizations in a collaborative effort of community development and evangelism bringing hope to the next generation.

Prayer Requests: Please pray about how you can be involved in the soccer ministry to Congo’s youth. Please continue to pray for an end to the political upheaval in the Congo.
