Family and Friends:
December 3 - December 10 we are meeting with coaches and campus leaders from Champions United - Uganda. Organized around soccer, "Champions"operates across 5 different campuses. Coaches have daily access to hundreds of young men to share the love of Christ as mentors and father figures. Wars and regional conflicts have killed thousands and displaced millions of people in and around Uganda. The majority of these young men are fatherless or orphaned. Ultimately, "Champions" connects young Ugandan boys to their Heavenly Father through these mentors and father figures.
While in Uganda, we will spend time pouring into "Champions" campus leaders and coaches. We will spend a week talking about identity, fatherhood, and how to live more freely as Sons of God. "Son-ship" is a gift at any age. When we know this and rest in this, nothing that can separate us from Christ and His amazing plan for our lives. And make no mistake, just as we pour into "Champions," they will also pour into us. I know from trips to China and serving locally, this will be an incredible time of fellowship and blessing.
We would ask for your support in two ways: Prayers and Gifts. This trip and its mission are from God. Please pray that we are completely available - in every way - to love others. Mentoring is highly relational. Please pray that we keep the "providential appointments" God has already planned for us; we connect relationally with the specific Coach or person for whom this trip was planned. In addition, please pray for financial support. This trip is $2,500. Your gift will fund this trip and our ability to mentor the coaches and campus leaders who are impacting hundreds of young men - Uganda's next generation.
Thank you for your support. Excited to see what God does next.
