Ready For Take Off

Hey guys! Can you believe we are leaving this Saturday? Anyone else getting excited!

For all our family, friends, supporters at home, we thought it would be a good idea to share a bit of our schedule and what our time in Ethiopia will look like.

On Saturday afternoon, our team will all meet for the first time in the Toronto airport and that night we will be depart on route to Istanbul, Turkey then Sunday night we finally arrive in Addis Ababa. The first two days of our tour will be dedicated to a training camp where we will get acclimatized to playing in higher altitude, spend time learning about the culture, how to share our stories, and the Gospel.

On Wednesday, we will make the 8-hour trek to Bahir Dar where we will be playing 2 games, hosting a Coaching 4 Life conference, and running soccer camps.

The following Sunday, we will head back to Addis and stay there for the remainder of the tour. We will play 4 more games, run more soccer camps, and participate in various humanitarian projects. Then begin our journey home on the 5th.

As we get ready to leave please keep our team in your prayers. Here are some specific needs :

  • For the remaining finances
  • Hearts are prepared
  • Safe travels for our team to Ethiopia and while we are in country

Thank you all for your prayers and support! We look forward to sharing this journey with you. The next time you hear from us we will be Ethiopia.

Much love!
