2 female missionaries go viral for using basketball to spread the Word of God

Two female missionaries in the Philippines have gone viral for using basketball as a tool to help spread the Word of God.

As seen in Oscar Oida's report on "State of the Nation," a video made by Sister Soriano and Sister Estioco from the Missionaries of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints shows the two of them sharing lessons from Christ while dribbling and shooting three-pointers.

We hear Sister Soriano say in Filipino: "Because of Jesus, anything is possible" to the camera, before miraculously throwing the ball into the basket behind her without looking. 

Sister Estioco said she learned basketball because it was a fun activity at her church.

Sister Soriano, on the other hand, was an MVP at her school.

The two female missionaries and their unique style of preaching has both inspired and delighted thousands of people online. — Margaret Claire Layug/LA, GMA News
