PURPOSE OF TRIP:
Puerto Maldanado, Peru is in desperate need of learning about the love and sacrifice of Christ and how that translates into a real and genuine relationship with the Lord. We are partnering with missionaries that operate Safe Haven Youth Center that reaches out to the kids and families there. We are hosting a free basketball camp for kids, and we are excited to share about Christ through teaching them about their purpose, plan, part & place in God’s kingdom.
VISTA’S INVOLVEMENT WITH HOOPS FOR HOPE: Hoops for Hope teaches basketball skills with a message of hope locally and internationally. Hoops for Hope is passionate about people and sharing Christ’s love. We believe that everyone has a purpose, plan, part and place in God’s kingdom, and we are eager to help people discover what that means. Everything is done in a high energy, positive environment that the kids absolutely love.
We are looking for the church to help find ways to do camps here locally in our community to reach kids & families here, and to do that we need people that know & enjoy basketball and people that love kids (and may not necessarily know basketball). There are also ways to help logistically too. Also people to give financially to help fund local camps & international trips, and check out www.hoopsforhopeinternational.org to learn more about Hoops for Hope.
