Like a rock thrown into the water causing a ripple effect, or the shaking of the earth caused at the epicenter of an earthquake moving miles in every direction, can be the affect of a bad attitude of a young player exhibited on the soccer field to all those around him/her.

It happened Saturday.  During a fun pick up tournament he got mad.  His team was losing.  His teammate missed a penalty kick, one he thought he should take.  So... after an argument with his team, he said the words we've said and have heard others say, "I QUIT".  He walked off.  He gave up on his team.

What a perfect opportunity.  At half time I gathered the boys together and shared with them that there are times both on and off the field we get mad, angry and upset.  It happens. It happens on the field and it happens off the field.  I went on to explain how we respond to those things that make us mad, angry and upset is important.  It was a very real, teachable moment.

One of our purposes for Ultimate Goal is to place caring, mentoring coaches in the lives of these refugee kids. Saturday it happened to be me.  A relationship built gave an opportunity to care for a group of refugee kids by mentoring them in the right way to handle getting mad, angry and upset.

A small snapshot of the life and ministry of Ultimate Goal on the ground.  A ministry supported by your generous gifts and donations.  As this year comes to a close will you consider a donation to Ultimate Goal to help enable this work to continue? 

You can give by writing and sending a check to Ultimate Goal, PO Box 110334, Nashville, TN 37222 or by going online to ultimategoal.net and clicking on our "DONATE" page.

Your donations are 100% tax deductible and are being used to mentor and minister to young refugee youth through the great sport of soccer.

Blessings,

John
