Women's basketball plays and serves in Guatemala

May 3010, 2012 |

The Women’s Basketball team traveled to Guatemala May 6-14, 2012, to work with the El Faro Mission. It was the first international service trip for the Lady Crusaders. The team  completed service projects in two villages and hosted basketball camps and clinics in local villages. They also played two exhibitions games against a high school team from Puerto Barrios, a local town just across the bay from the El Faro Mission.

The team also hosted an event called “Ministry City,” which was part Vacation Bible School and part English class. The participants were all students taking English classes at the El Faro Mission. They enjoyed themed activities  designed to teach them English and biblical principles. The students were able to “shop” in eight different shops for trinkets and goodies to take home after spending all day in class.

This was the ninth Evangel TEAM trip since the program was started in 2007. TEAM stands for The Evangel Athletics Ministry. It is a program designed to allow Evangel athletes the opportunity to blend their passions for sports with their passion for serving others. Two TEAM trips are being planned for the 2012-13 school year. Read a full feature story on the trip.
