Ryan and Kyle with “Big Dad” (grandfather, Rick Mitchell) at a local baseball game. They are learning from the expert, who is investing his life in them. In the second picture, Rick Mitchell is teaching the rules of softball to children in Nairobi, Kenya.
Rick (in maroon shirt) is shown with the school baseball team for ages 12 and under in Katmandu, Nepal. In the other picture, Rick (wearing a gray baseball cap) teaches Filipino youth about techniques of baseball and softball.
Rick is teaching a Filipino child how a pitcher holds a baseball. He also teaches Filipino high schoolers the finer points of the game of baseball.
But the teaching does not end there. He talks about sportsmanship and has many opportunities to share Christ in one-on-one situations.
