AIA Dallas/Nicaragua Baseball Tour


Nicaragua is in the southern part of Central American.  We will be mostly in the city of Managua playing baseball and working with the local AIA staff missionary.

We fly out today June 13th from DFW Airport and will return July 2nd.  Our week of preparation time has been awesome!  We have a great bunch a guys with very little pitching and are hoping to pick up a few Nicaraguan Pitchers to have a mixed culture team.  I believe that just like last summers AIA South Africa mixed culture basketball team this will allow us to be better ministers of the gospel with  unity across culture being a light to others.  It will also be a better experience for both the American players and Nicaraguan pitchers we pick up.  We will be playing teams and sharing our stories of how Jesus has sought us and changed us after the games we play.  Our guys are doing a great job of learning spanish even though we will have a translator.  Ayudame EspirtuSanto…Dios te bendiga (help me Holy Spirit and God bless you)
