L.A.C.E.S. is made up of teamwork, dedication, and hard work. But what keeps us going are the unexpected beautiful moments that stay in our hearts forever.
In our 2020 Behind the Scenes event, the three L.A.C.E.S. pioneers were asked what their most memorable moments were while working at L.A.C.E.S. Below is Seren, Founder and Executive Director of L.A.C.E.S, James Moore, Liberia National Director, and Pastor Roberts, Liberia Program Manager responses.
I said “Yes, this face looks familiar”. He said “Pastor Roberts, this is Sam Jackson, have you forgotten? I played for little Angels in the L.A.C.E.S. team in Matadi. And two things you stressed in L.A.C.E.S. league has really changed my life. You told me that in L.A.C.E.S. our life can change. So, I learned from you how to be a disciplined child and I also improved in my skills. Today, I am proud to be called a national team player.” Then he walked over to where his coach was and said “Coach, this is my real coach, Pastor Roberts. This is the man who taught me values that changed my life and taught me how to play the game well and now I am a national team player.” That day I felt so very proud in the airport.
L.A.C.E.S. could not impact children’s lives on the scale it does without your help.
