I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart;
I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.
Psalms 9:1

2018 was a very fruitful year for C.A.R.E. Africa and we give all the thanks and glory to our Lord and Savior! When we look back at our 2018 goals, and check off every single one, our hearts are overflowing with thankfulness to God. Without him stirring people’s hearts to support us prayerfully, financially and physically, none of this would have been possible.

If you followed our blogs you know that 2018 was also a very hard year for us. Spiritually we experienced attacks like never before. Honestly, we were not prepared and that is why 2019 we will be better equipped. Watch for our upcoming blog announcing our 2019 theme and goals for C.A.R.E.

DSC_0175Recently there was a large football (soccer) competition in Egbe that was hosted by the  Elder Leke Abejide. He is currently contesting for Federal House of Representatives 2019 for Yagba West Constituency. Part of his election campaign was to develop grass roots football in Yagba Land.

The competitions was called Youth Unity Competition and was held May through June across the Local Governments of Yagba Federal Constituency, which comprised of Mopa, Amuo, Yagba East and Yagba West. There were more than 15 teams that participated in the competition.

DSC_0296 (2)Vessels (C.A.R.E. Africa’s sports outreach team) came top of the preliminary round that was played at Yagba West level. They then went on to qualify for the finals and they won against Success Stars of Isanlu. which is a very experienced and fit team. This is the first major trophy award won by Vessels after eight years of existence. In addition Vessels Team was given the Most Disciplined Team Award.

This experience has created awareness for our sports outreach program. Many football players have since signed up to join the Vessels team some which are even M*slims. We are excited about our team and their success and we give God all the glory.
