Sports Friends Camp Langano Facilities Development (92522)
Today's youth face many struggles and issues - religious and cultural identity, drugs, alcohol, sexuality, gangs, poverty, broken homes, unemployment, internet gaming, etc. How can the Church help young people address these issues and offer them hope found only in Christ?
Sports serve as a magnet - a universal language that can bridge the gap between the church and the community. We want to tap into the passion young people have for sports to introduce them and their families to the love and Word of God.
The vision of Sports Friends is to see a global movement of local church-centered sports ministries transforming lives and strengthening communities with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Camping is a critical element of the overall Sports Friends strategy and a natural extension of our existing community-based ministry programs. Deep relationships are formed, the good news of God's love is shared, and campers are impacted for eternity. As these young people enjoy sports, games, crafts, music, good food, warm beds, and lots of love, they encounter God in powerful ways. For most of these campers, it is the best week of their lives.
Located in Ethiopia, Camp Langano was the first Sports Friends residential camp and has continued to grow. Our desire is to build new facilities to support the influx of campers and enrich the Langano experience. We praise God for how he has already used the many camp seasons at Langano and pray He will continue to!
