Finding Common Ground

In order to be effective in missions, one of the first things you must do is seek common ground. The days of "turn or burn" outreach is over - in my opinion. One of the things we have done in the Philippines is to intentionally be a part of the community. Soccer has really become popular and our leaders have become die-hard fans as well. With this in mind, a soccer outreach was planned... a soccer clinic actually.

The clinic was a success and the small group of teens and college age young people meet every week for devotions and some soccer training.

Finding common ground is a natural way to let your light shine!
