Off to Colombia!

Well, training camp is over, and we are off to Colombia. It has been great preparing ourselves physically, mentally, and spiritually here in Chicago, to be ready to play and share our faith in Christ down in Colombia. This morning we scrimmaged at Moody Bible Institute, against some former players and other guys from the neighborhood near there.Later in the afternoon found the Athletes in Action basketball team down in the Englewood neighborhood on Chicago's south side. We were hanging out with the kids from the By The Hand Club for Kids. We worshipped with them after school in a time of praise, then went to Ogden Park and played outside with the kids. It was a great time of urban ministry, in an area of the city that needs to know that others care for those that live there.

We leave for Colombia on Wednesday, and will arrive in Cartagena, and will be there for a week, followed by a week in Cali. I will try to update my blog whenever I can, but there only may be one or two updates while I am traveling. Please check in later for more updates!
