Ben in Burundi and Nigeria

Our Sports Minister Ben spent 12 incredible days at the end of July on a mission trip with Scripture Union England and Wales to Burundi and Nigeria!

During his time there, he was part of a team of 3 who delivered training sessions in mentoring and discipleship to local volunteers, met with Scripture Union staff and visited local Scripture Union Camps.

 

A personal highlight of his time there was training a team of local Burundian volunteers to be confident in delivering a Pulse Games afternoon for around 200 children, which was a huge success! The trip will always be clouded by a missed penalty during a football match with a local Burundian team, showing his true English colours on an international stage

The VLOG below shows a snippet of his time there, with Pulse Games being carried out in Burundi, with the local volunteers taking the lead on completion of brief training from Ben.
