Philippines – Fastbreak Sports Evangelism – PHI002

$100.00$5,000.00

FastBreak Ministries is a program of Evangelistic International Ministries stationed in the Province of Negros Occidental, Philippines. Here, the game of basketball is the country’s most prominent sport. FastBreak Ministries uses the game of basketball as an avenue to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with youth of the area.

The program’s current director, Jhun Santos, initially hosted basketball day-clinics twice a month to teach the fundamentals of the game to around 30 students. Now, the clinics have grown into a weekly camp teaching over 100 students every Saturday. The students (ages 21 and under) learn basic skills such as ball handling, shooting, defensive, and offensive skills in addition to hearing the Gospel of Jesus Christ during break times. In teaching the importance of a good foundation in basketball, Jhun incorporates the importance of having a foundation in Jesus Christ in their own lives. If the students make professions of faith, they are referred to local pastors for discipleship.

After 8 Saturdays of training, the students are divided into teams for the EIM Basketball Tournament, which concludes the camps. We are thankful to God for providing for the needs of this ministry, allowing it to grow and touch more lives. As the vision for FastBreak Ministries grows each day, so do the needs of the ministry.  At each camp, each student receives a Bible, a EIM/FastBreak jersey, and snacks. The snacks costs $100 every month. EIM also rents a covered basketball court every Saturday for 3 hours to host the camps. This costs $112 a month. Jhun hopes to one day expand the camps to include more sports as well as have his own EIM Sports Center, instead of renting a facility.

The Bibles cost around $550 every couple months, and the jerseys cost $480 every couple months. Jhun would also love to be able reward his volunteers with a small allowance. They have been great servants to this ministry! Please pray for our ministry that God use it to save more souls, and please support Jhun’s effort to share the Good News of Jesus Christ through the game of basketball!
