Volunteers served together in the Swansboro neighborhood of Richmond last weekend. Enjoy a few highlights of their work as they sought to see every life changed by Jesus!
The love of Jesus once again intersected Northside Richmond kids last Saturday at the 5th Annual Spirit of Baseball Camp.
Led by a team from Gayton, volunteers from all over Virginia converged on the fields at John Marshall High School and served as Jesus’ hands and feet for kids who often don’t get an opportunity to attend a camp experience like this.
Along with baseball lessons in 9 different skills, campers receive a shirt, hat, ball, glove, lunch and a copy of the Bible.
The self-financing camp is supported by donations from individuals in the Gayton community, fundraisers, businesses and several organizations.
Partners in the Spirit of Baseball include the Northside Outreach Center, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Gamma Psi Fraternity, and Tuckahoe Little League.
After instructions, campers played ball until the end of the day. In fact, some skillful ball players showed what they learned and the fun showed on their faces!
The key to the day, however, isn’t baseball at all. What made Saturday great was that after Brother Gary Foreman delivered the Gospel to 67 players, 19 of them responded to His word! That’s why we were there. That’s why we’ll be back.
To all who coached, organized, managed, cooked, donated and served, from the “Spirit of Baseball” Organization Team, THANK YOU.
We had a great day getting the Gayton Community Garden started last Saturday! There is still some work to do, but a lot is done. If you are interested in growing a plot or helping, you can learn more about the garden.
We look forward to seeing you at the garden soon!
