For most of his life, one of missionary Rich McLane’s passions has been hunting. His wife Lori enjoys playing the trumpet. When they became missionary church planters in Poland years ago, who would have guessed these passions would converge to reach more than 120,000 hunters throughout the country?
It turns out that baseball is not just an all-American pastime. Chris and Leneé Oakley found this out three years ago when their family discovered the local baseball club in Budapest, Hungary. Their boys began to play on the team immediately, and Chris was soon asked to begin coaching. Being involved in both playing and coaching has allowed the Oakley family the chance to get to know not only the families of the team members, but also coaches and players from other Hungarian teams. This unconventional opportunity has opened up incredible doors of ministry for the Oakleys to speak into the lives of Hungarians through sports.
