What We Do
The Buhay Sports mission trips focus on regions in the Philippines where the gospel’s desperately needed. We partner with churches in those areas to setup basketball games with local players.
At each game, crowds of people surround the court. At halftime, the Buhay Sports team leads everyone in songs. All the players introduce themselves to the crowd and one player shares his or her personal testimony. We also ask the local pastor to share a short challenge with the crowd and invite people to receive Christ as their Savior. Then, we finish the second half of the game.
Because of their great love for the game and their respect for the foreign team, many Filipinos enthusiastically participate in the songs and several come to Christ at each game! Afterward, the local pastors follow-up and stay connected with each person who accepted the gift of salvation.
You don’t have to be a great athlete to join a Buhay Sports team. You just need a love for Christ and a willingness to be used by Him. It’s exciting to see how God continues to use the game of basketball to accomplish his purposes!
