A request from long time friend and supporter Mike Handel provided Sports Quest an opportunity to bless young children in Afghanistan. In an endeavor to build relationships with the locals, American soldiers made a soccer field next to their school but were then in need of practice and game balls. Sports Quest and Mike Handel partnered together to make it happen.
Robin, (whose son initiated the request in Afghanistan) wrote to say,
“I am so touched by this kind offer. I am so thankful to you all for your generosity and willing spirit to help my son with this project. I believe that God placed this desire to help the children on David’s heart but this vision would not have been completed without your help!!! This may be the first time any of these children ever had a ball and I can’t wait to hear about the look on their faces as David shows them how to give one a good kick!:) David and his men have been extremely busy but I can speak for him at this time in humble gratitude. I am truly touched beyond words so I will use His perfect words…Ephesians 1:3-5 ‘I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the Gospel from the first day until now.’ God bless you for taking part in this project!”
