Being inside a church and seeing the sky at the same time, is not very common, but it was the perfect setup for watching the World Cup match Ghana - Germany, and understanding that some of these 5 star players do believe in God and have a personal relationship with Jesus.

It's freezing at night, but this is not an obstacle to go and watch a World Cup match in a Big Screen.
At the townships around Maputo, everynight we show a match in a different place.
But this is not about soccer only! This is an opportunity that churches use to show that for some high level athetes, soccer is not their ultimate goal, but their faith in a eternal prize that comes through Jesus.
Ubabalo eAfrica means "The Grace of God upon Africa".
We believe that through sports coaching, we can link the soccer skills with life skills, and provide a rich and efective learning athmosphere.
We believe in a new generation of children who will grow with a new and bible founded value system, which impact not only their personal lives as those around, promoting a community transformation.

"I can't remember when was the last time I had so much fun..."
The Sunday Service was for the children.
The message was about how important are children to God, and how easy is to forget this.
Children were looking for Jesus, and the disciples thought He was too important to relate with children.
The chalenge was for the church to see children ministry as an important and critical area for the church.
Parents were expecting to see their children play, but they were surprised by being involved in the games.
We call it FamilyGames!

Today, more than 1000 children from the "4th of October Primary School" had a very special day. While the older group (500) marched into a National Celebration with the First Lady of Mozambique, the youngest but significant group stayed with us for a Special KidsGames Day. Lots of fun, games and learning experiences. Check by yourself...
