“This league allows people to learn about Christ.”
Like most boys, 13-year-old Yohana loves the game of soccer. But like most boys, he
was kicking a ball made of plastic trash along the cracked-earth streets weaving through
the Gichagi slum.
Then sweet news hit his ears. A TV station was interviewing world-class sprinters who
train at a Vapor Center.
“They were talking about the [soccer] leagues offered at the same place,” he said. The thought of playing on beautiful grass with a real ball sent joy down his spine. Yohana was determined to join. That was three years ago. Today, his life and soul are forever changed.
While he's mimicked soccer greats since he could walk, he received his first formal skills
training during practices at the Vapor Center. Yohana is now a standout defender on his
team, surrounded by friends and classmates.
Like thousands of other children, he's reaping the physical rewards of league play. But
his story reveals greater value gained. There he gets water, basic nutrition, mentorship,
community, and so much more. He's been changed by the Center’s core purpose – to
multiply disciples. Bible lessons and life-on-life discipleship from his Vapor Coach led Yohana to give his life to Christ. He was baptized in January. We join heaven in
rejoicing over this transformed soul and pray for him as he boldly shares his new faith.
Vapor’s disciple-making leagues ensure that every participant hears the good news of
Jesus at every practice and every game. They come to play the sport they love and
hear about the One who loves them.
“I was encouraged that God can do anything,” Yohana said softly. “So, I knew that I could follow him. I enjoy reading my Bible and praying. I feel amazing.”
Imagine reshaping eternity for $10. Our discipleship leagues are FREE for every
child, youth, and adult in the community, and the Kingdom of Heaven is expanding
thanks to the generosity of people like you. Thousands have placed their faith in Christ
in Vapor’s leagues. If you aren’t already a Vapor12 partner, prayerfully consider joining
