In the past few months, Sports Academy has had the privilege of baptising 5 players: Booysen, Emmanuel, Jelly, Armstrong, and Brian. All of these young men have been involved in the One2One mentorship program, each individually mentored by a Sports Academy staff or volunteer.
Our Under 16 football captain Sika Booysen was another one of the players who was baptised.
“I wanted to get baptised because I want to commit my life to God and glorify Lord Jesus through everything I do, I’m thankful for the direction he has given me to live a great life”. When asked why he wanted to be baptised, Jelly answered “Jesus was baptised and I want to be obedient to God and do what Jesus did”
Each one of these young men are leaders at Sports Academy. We are encouraged by their steps of faith and public display of choosing to follow Jesus whole-heartedly. We are honoured to be a part of their journey.
