team prayer

“What we live is more important than what we say, because the right way of living always leads to the right way of speaking. When we forgive our neighbors from our hearts, our hearts will speak forgiving words. When we are grateful, we will speak grateful words, & when we are hopeful & joyful, we will speak hopeful & joyful words.” – Henri Nouwen

Ball Project is grateful for our partners, donors & advisors working & sacrificing to help children play.

Here is an encouraging update from one of our partners in Nepal:

One of the player said to our coach, “Coach, why are you so different? You never use abusive words or scold us when we make mistake rather you teach us lovingly and correct us by motivating. My previous coach was never nice. He always shouted, screamed and used bad words when I made mistakes. It used to demotivate me to the level that I never wanted to play again. And he was a “A” licensed coach. But I have found a very good environment here at Ambassadors, the coaches are very friendly, helpful and motivating. You even teach us good life lessons.”

Ball Project is grateful for our partners around the world working faithfully in their communities to mentor young people & help children play.

For some reason several times in the last few weeks many of the conversations with partners seem to revolve around Moldova.

Ball Project has several partners in Moldova including Admirals Basketball. Another partner from Florida took baseball equipment to Moldova to help with baseball & English camps with another new partner. & our Ukrainian partner Last Bell sent one of their alumni to Moldova to be trained in soccer coaching by another one of our Moldovan partners currently working in Germany with refugees.

It is always encouraging to find out that good people are doing good things in their communities to help children play & it is fun to find out that they are all connected.

It’s a small world after all.
