PCC-G11 OnGoal

Pathways Community Church - Youth ministries in Largo/Clearwater, has long had a relationship with the OnGoal, soccer outreach ministry. For some time we have long had a goal for bringing such an outreach here to Guatemala. This month was the time.

We were able to partner with a local group that is starting a soccer program. There were several highlights for this week from housing to assistance with the school facilities @ the Arms of Jesus school. As well, with an overlap of 3 days, PCC was joined by a team from North Metro Church in Atlanta. This gave a small army of about 40 people to facilitate the final day of an amazing week.

In total there were about 100-120 children that participated in this event. They heard the gospel message and played soccer with the Americans.

The long term effects of this event is that people involved with the IDC will be able to follow up with weekly soccer sessions and sharing the gospel message with the children.

This event was and is and absolute blessing.
