Wait - What? Africa?
Yep, you guessed it! HiS PRINT is heading to Africa this Friday! Joe Page and Brandon Hoybach will be joining me on an exploratory visit to Abuja, Nigeria! God has opened up this terrific opportunity through the invitation of Temitayo Femi Abolarin, a Christian brother to whom we sent baseball equipment back in 2017. Temitayo has used this equipment to further improve his baseball and softball academy, but also used much of it to share with schools in the area. One of the senators in the government got wind of this and spearheaded the opportunity for us to come and leave HiS PRINT on African soil.
Below are pictures of Temitayo, his players and the field that will be hosting their first ever Little League tournament. We have been named Honorary Chairmen of the tournament! I am also including a copy of our itinerary which shows how God is opening doors for us to share with government officials, radio and television audiences, local schools and the tournament participants & fans.
We are blessed beyond measure and just want to be obedient and not walk in fear of what He has called us to BE, what He wants us to DO and where He wants us to GO! Please keep us in your prayers as well as our families that we leave back here state-side!
HE DID IT!
