Our sports ministry training team had an opportunity to work with over 70 teenagers who participated in the PAYSCO 2019 Teens Program – sports sessions, on December 15-17th 2019, at Uganda Christian University Mukono. We were hosted by Rev. Richard Rukundo, the Assistant Provincial Education Coordinator, The Province of the Church of Uganda. About 500 youth were attending a youth conference organized by the Church of Uganda Provincial Youth and Children’s Ministry departments. HCA Africa had an opportunity to facilitate the sports program for the teens – the youngest participants and a relevant age category to HCA Africa mission.
HCA team involved Mrs. Rita Kibedi, Ms. Grace Joy Kirabo, Mr. Michael Mugabi and Mr. Emmanuel Manishimwe. These worked together to provide the teens a unique experience of sports ministry. By estimate, every one of the 70 teens who participated in sport went back home with at least one new skill in Netball, Football, Volleyball, Ultimate Frisbee and Basketball. Some of the teens had never experienced edu-sport before. It was a joy to see their excitement as we played ‘Shoe game’, the ‘Tail game’ and Parachute. We use these games to teach the Bible Truth, Life Skills and Environmental Health.
Meanwhile, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
