Thursday June 26
Today we had our first and last morning game at a small stadium in La Romana. After an early breakfast we headed down the road a few miles to play against an academy team with almost 40 players. The players were anywhere from 15 to 20 and they all are looking to sign or find scholarships to play at universities back home. After a few innings of no scoring we finally broke the game open and took a big lead. We ended up beating the academy pretty good but it was still a fun experience. Our overall record is now 16-1-1.
After the game we had a player share a testimony and so did they. Their head coach is a Christian and has tried to influence all the players to become Christians as well. A good amount of them are but a few are still not. It was exciting to talk to them and hopefully influence them in the right direction. God has definitely been working in their lives and I love being able to be a part of their walks.
