New faces through soccer event

We watched the final of the Copa Sudamerica in church together just now. The match was between an Ecuador club, Liga and Brazil club, Fluminense. The people in Quito were very excited because Liga is a soccer club from Quito and this championship is very important to them. Luis suggested to me that we can screen the match live in church and invite people to come. We wrote a simple paper that says “Match shown in huge screen – Free!” and pasted it outside the church before the match started. Amazingly, there were quite a number of new people who came to join us. One family which visited us for the first time even said that they will come for our Sunday services after watching the soccer match. πŸ™‚ Looks like we should paste posters outside the church a few days before we screen movies or live soccer matches next time. πŸ˜€

We enjoyed the match too as Liga won Fluminense 5-1. We got a shock when Fluminense scored after 40 seconds. But thank God Liga played very well and scored 5 goals in the next 90 minutes. πŸ™‚ Below is the video of the goals of the match:
