Fuel the Mission supports 26 Christian coaches and 54 teams in several slum communities in southeast Asia. The teams meet regularly to practice and play other teams. The coaches also hold weekly Bible study and worship opportunities for the players in their homes. Reaching over 350 young athletes per week, each team needs only $600/year for transportation, refreshments and study materials. In a city of over eight million people, their current reach represents only the tip of the iceberg and we would like to enable them to reach many more. Would you like to support a team of your own and be part of these life-changing scenarios?
--- Many athletes choose to receive God's unconditional love and follow Jesus, often the first in their homes to do so.
--- Neighborhood coaches, caring mentors, point the way out of poverty and darkness.
--- Those who might never enter a church are learning truth, self-discipline, Godly values, and Christian character traits while having fun.
--- Many children go back to school, get off drugs and alcohol, and gain confidence to leave behind lives of crime, violence, and gangs.
--- Many athletes have become responsible young adults who pursue higher education and successful employment, often volunteering as coaches in the program themselves.
--- Girls, who are culturally forbidden from playing on city rec fields, may enjoy sports with freedom at the sports camp located outside the city.
