Winnipeg, Man. —The Compassion ministry of Living Water Church in Borabu, where Mennonite Church Canada worker Rad Houmphan ministers, hosted a sports tournament in February of this year.  Six other churches also participated in the event, which drew more than 200 people together for a day of worship, play, laughter and fellowship.  The Compassion ministry is an outreach program for children who live in the town and villages around Borabu. It provides opportunities for social interaction with other children, physical and sport activities, Bible instruction, and more. Recently 7 children and 2 parents of Compassion children made the decision to be followers of Jesus.  Rejoice with us that more people have come into kingdom of God!
