Games Day Outreach Draws a Crowd!

CLAY center games day

The CLAY (Changing Lifes Among Youth) Center staff prays that more Thai youth, especially men, will come to know the Lord personally and live their lives for Him in Thailand.

As they wait expectantly for God to answer their prayers, the CLAY Center staff works to build relationships with more Thai people through sports ministry.

Games Day Outreach Activities

Recently they held their 2nd annual games day. This event is meant as an evangelism outreach to local Thai people each year. They held an 11v11 men’s soccer tournament with six teams. They also held a women’s volleyball tournament with six teams.

In total, they had more than 200 people participate in the tournaments.

If you include all of the staff, volunteers, and fans, the CLAY center drew 250 people and they even fed them all!

They had a group of women who put together a time for the little kids where they could play games and face paint while their families participated in the sporting events.

Games Day Gospel Presentation

The whole point of the games day event is to give glory to Christ for His sacrificial work on the cross that makes it possible for one to have a personal relationship with God.

So this year, a Thai man named Gamon shared the gospel and lead a time of prayer in front of the entire crowd.

CLAY Center prayer at games day

Let’s pray that this powerful message takes root in the hearts and lives of those who came!


The CLAY (Changing Lives Among Youth) Center in Thailand uses sports to reach university students, local schools, and children in various homes/orphanages for Christ. The CLAY Center hopes and prays that through sports ministry, more young Thai men will give their lives to Christ and then begin to take leadership roles in local Thai churches.

Although the CLAY Center will work with both men and women, the focus is on men right now because there are not many men in the churches and there aren’t many ministries in Thailand that are reaching men.
