The impact is the 5th of January through the 13th. Everyday they will have sports outreaches morning and afternoon teaching basketball and soccer. For most of the kids this will be their first exposure to basketball. Rogerio Soares from Athlete's in Action is leader the sports ministry. Mike Westlake from the Community Church of Greenwood is also assisting with the basketball outreach.
The team settled in their new home at the local public school and then started walking around the area inviting people to that evenings program on Saturday the 5th. That evening saw a very dynamic speaker/singer who talked about the dangers of drugs and the saving grace of God. It was a very high energy night and a great way to start the weeks impact.
