8 pictures that impacted me from Soccer Camp 2015
4. Discipleship is who we are, not simply what we do: It is always more fun to journey through life, relationships and ministry with people who chose to be nice to each other. I found out this year that Germans enjoy working with people from the Rio Grande Valley because Germans also like each other. Soccer Camp 2015 is simply an extension and a reflection of their life-on-life daily experiences.
Commitment: I'm still blown away by the fact that we, the Rio Grande Valley, are the recipients of hosting such an amazing group of followers of Christ. With so many options across our beautiful globe, these German brothers and sisters decided to come and invest in the lives of families and entire communities for ten days in deep-South Texas. What a blessing, what a privilege to join what God is doing in the world thorough His local church.
The Titanic: Germans know how to have fun. No better way to conclude such an amazing week and to celebrate the goodness of our God than on a boat ride in South Padre Island during Spring Break. It is very easy to be friends with our German tribe.
Big Picture: No better way to illustrate the finger print left by Soccer Camp 2015 in the life of our church than the panoramic view of our church facilities. Three new families, from Soccer Camp 2015, showed up tonight to The Summit, our mid-week discipleship school. God has fulfilled His promises to our faith-commmunity. Soccer Camp 2015 was a tangible evidence that God is definitely watching over His church.
