Spring of 2018: Rwanda’s neighboring country of Kenya now has an Upward-modeled soccer ministry in the town of Malindi on its east coast.
Under the leadership of pastor James Wanji, director of Sowing Seeds of Joy, 2017 ended with over 100 kids ( 7 teams) playing in an Upward modeled league.
KSA helped in late 2017 with the purchase of durable, leather soccer balls which will (hopefully!) last well into 2018. James hopes to expand the soccer ministry into other towns in eastern Kenya. James says the most needed things for bringing in more churches are Bible study materials for the young players, and more long lasting leather soccer balls. “This will help us win more young people to Christ, and help them grow deep in their walk with the Lord”.
