New Baseball Fields in Nicaragua
Team NC Baylog is pleased to be involved in a mission to bring baseball to some villages in Nicaragua through New Song Mission Nicaragua, a missionary effort founded in 2007. As the organization states (they)”believe sports present an environment where fun and life lessons meet. ”
Two small baseball fields are being professionally renovated and a big field is being considered that would be large enough for adults to use. Launched in January 2015, a baseball ‘Little League’ for children aged 7-12 is now in progress among the families from different villages that are home to four partnering churches supported by New Song Mission.
Team NC Baylog knows first hand the truth of the mission’s premise that “sports present an environment where fun and life lessons meet.” This sports initiative is another method for the ministry “to reach and empower Nicaraguans.” The sports fields are located at Canto Nuevo in Candelaria (also home to a mission house, a medical and dental clinic and a vegetable garden.) Visions of the future is for the sports ministry to expand into softball and soccer and for additional leagues of different ages.
