Soccer Club Party
Joshua, on staff at Faith Alive and a leader with the Faith Alive young men’s soccer team, sent me some photos of their December year-end party. He says, “it was glorious.” It looks like they celebrated in a common Nigerian fashion—with thanksgiving, prayers, cake and Coke. On a sadder note, one of the young player’s father’s died in a Christmas eve bomb blast at a nearby marketplace. Please keep his family in your prayers.
On another note, I made a new year’s resolution to focus on writing the rest of my book of inspiring personal stories about the Faith Alive Hospital. In order to create time for that, I plan to just post blog entries on Mondays. I’m grateful for all of you who check in daily, and hope that this change won’t be a problem. If you’re itching to read more about Faith Alive, consider reading any of the 274 posts from 2010 or the 101 from 2009.
