Beginning of the Soccer-Training Year

Every year, on September 1st, all the children go to school because the school year begins. So, the same thing happens in our club Nadia. There are new groups, new children and a new hope... In the new season, everything is new, too. God has abundantly blessed us with new children of different ages, so the groups are packed, and the Gospel is preached every day!

The smallest ones 4-6 years old, we call them Nadia Kids. Now the team has gotten bigger and there are up to 15-18 children in all. Sometimes it gets funny though, and after an hour of training with them I feel like I was unloading the freight trains all day long.

There are a lot of children from families of believers, and I hope that in the future these boys will become a good “backbone” of our team. We have also recruited a group of 11-13 years old recently, even though these boys are not yet in the team which is playing in the championship of the region, they're so-called the nearest reserve of Nadia. We are also engaged with two more playing teams Y-14 CYSL (coach D.Sosnovsky), and Y-16 youth team adults (coach A. Lupenko).

From mid of September, the games of the championship of the region, district and regional cup have resumed its activity. In this season our adult team, which is under the leadership of Alexey Lupenko, plays successfully in the second league of Rivne region. For the first time in history, we reached the finals, where we met with the multiple champion and the regional cup holder – the Slavia team. The favorites of the confrontation were our rivals, in which there were many experienced players who have experience of many games even in the top division of the championship of Ukraine, but we managed to “face the battle” with the eminent opponents, losing 1:3. It was nice to see as after the match the players of Slavia approached our guys and thanked for the game, and invited us to make a collective photo with them. During the match we had a good support from the stands, because there were a lot of fans from our church and other churches, they all cheered on, and despite of our loss we were saluted as the winners.

In September, two our guys flew to China, where they will work as children's coaches for a year at a private school. The guys will stay in a country where it is forbidden to confess Christ openly, and away from their families and church, thus now, this is our constant prayer need. At the end of September, five more Nadia's guys went to the Czech Republic for three months. Unfortunately, the situation in our country does not contribute to solving the material problems of youth. The guys are working hard there in order to make money for living. Again, speaking of this, the problem – apartness from the family and the church. Therefore, on our small group, which has gotten significantly smaller because of the massive departure of our guys, we pray a lot for our young people. We hope that God will keep our children in a foreign land from temptations and falling.

Another important event occurred in September cannot be overlooked, is the meeting of the coordination council of the Christian Soccer Union of Ukraine in the city of Irpin. The meeting summed up the results of last year's ministry, there were representatives of all clubs of the CSUU. At this meeting people have shared many blessings and prayer needs, made plans for the future and exchanged with their mutual experience. Everybody was of one mind regarding the fact that our Soccer Union is sought-after, and we have to put more our joint efforts into the preaching of the Gospel through soccer that are being conducted through the members of our community and thankfully to God we see real, visible fruits.

We are very excited to be used by God in the sports ministry, and we are also glad to see His parental hand in our ministry!
