From Pastor Emmanuel Ngambage

January 2016  ” I praise the Lord for the good work upward soccer ministry is doing in our district of Kamonyi. Last year we started with a small team 16 kids trained and equipped by upward soccer ministry.  People saw me like a crazy man to start a ministry with those kids playing soccer in mud ground, but after first training our kids multiplied and in three months there were 75, during one of their soccer tournament they won 100 kids for Christ from one village…we have 200 kids with 86 parents who comes with their children…these parents just come by curiosity to see where their kids play soccer because they saw how these kids have been transformed in their behaviors…now they have decided to support their children by becoming full time members of our church”.

More Shirts, More Kids!

November 2015  Upward USA has again donated 2,000 surplus soccer shirts to KSA to help supply the growing leagues and teams.  With the help of Federal Express Land, Cru and its transportation service GAIN, a pallet of shirts and balls were sent to Kigali by container for a great price of $700, and delivered to grateful churches and excited futballers!
