SAGUís mens basketball team traveled to Belize to play some basketball, teach some basketball, but more importantly, to spread the Word of God in early May.
Their first full day (May 9) was spent in Belize City and it was glimpse of what was yet to come.
That morning team members were guests on the Integrity Radio Morning Talk Show (the only Christian radio station in the country).
Next the team went to the Assemblies of God Bible Institute to lead their chapel service.
In the afternoon the team handed out Bibles to the kids and taught some basketball skills at Belize Elementary School.
That night the team played basketball at the Belize Civic Center against the San Pedro Tiger Sharks.
Despite the 20 point loss, the team shared testimonies at halftime.
The rest of trip was jam packed. The next day the team painted a church and took in some Mayan ruins
After a quick nightís rest, they taught a clinic at Hope Assemblies of God High School in Orange Walk Town and led their chapel service.
After a water taxi took the team to San Pedro Island the guys had most the day to rest before a night game on May 12 against the same Tiger Sharks.
This time the Lions lost by six points but ate pizza with the local team after the contest.
On Sunday, May 13, the team split into two groups. Head coach Jerry Boone spoke at one church and assistant coach Jeremy Tosaya took the team to another church where they also said a few words.
Pizza again brought the team and local youth together.
The teamís final day at San Pedro Island was spent at San Pedro Catholic High School where the team did a clinic with the high school team.
On Tuesday, May 15, the missionary team returned back to Belize City for an elementary clinic and an evening game with the University of Belize.
In the final minutes of this one, the Lions took away a win and shared more testimonies at halftime.
The next day, after another clinic at a local school, SAGU won again on a Jeremy Bowman last second shot.
The final two days of the trip saw the team perform two clinics and then one night the squad attended a youth rally at Trinity Assembly of God Church.
Coach Boone capped off the trip with a message for the youth. On May 19, the basketball team returned home.
The 12 day trip spanned many clinics, many kids, many students, many testimonies, and four basketball games.
The ultimate success of the trip was achieved through the God given talents of these athletes and the desire of the SAGU men's basketball team to spread the Word of God.
The number of eternal victories is yet to be measured.
