Sister missionary in the Philippines shows off epic basketball skills in new viral video


Two sister missionaries serving in Cavite City, Philippines, Sister Estioco and Sister Soriano, are sharing their faith on a basketball court in a new video that has gone viral on Facebook. And as it turns out, Sister Soriano’s got game.

The video shows Sister Soriano taking several shots ranging from behind the basket, from three-point range, and from near center court. In another scene, she takes a three-point shot, then turns back to the camera before the ball goes in. She also spins the ball on her finger, once while also holding a Bible and then again holding a photo of Jesus Christ.

The crux and purpose of the sisters’ video message, though, is to encourage viewers to build a stronger relationship with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.

The video concludes with Sister Soriano saying, “Dahil kay Kristo, lahat ay posible,” which translates to, “With Christ, all things are possible,” before attempting a no-look shot from the free-throw line. 

As of July 12, the video has more than 3,000 likes, almost 2,500 comments, and 22,000 shares.
