December Speaker: Seren Frost, L.A.C.E.S.
Seren grew up in Muncie, IN and is a graduate of Delta High School and in 2002 graduated from Ball State University with a degree in Athletic Training. Upon graduation Seren moved to Chicago where she worked for 4 years as an athletic trainer. In 2006 God transformed her life completely and took her on a journey to Liberia, West Africa where she lived on a hospital ship for 3 months serving the poorest of the poor by providing them with life saving care. While in Liberia she was recruited to play in Liberia’s Women’s Professional Soccer League, and through that experience she was able to see into the lives of the women who had endured a brutal 14 year civil war, and still saw hope for a better future. Determined to walk alongside these women to bring hope and lasting restoration to their country, Seren returned to the US and founded the non-profit LACES. Visit www.lacesport.org for more information.
L.A.C.E.S. is providing WIBU with 2 ways for its members to partner in serving the youth of Liberia.
Donate new and gently used Soccer Equipment: L.A.C.E.S. is in need of new or gently used soccer cleats and soccer balls which will provide fun and safe playing conditions for the children.
Donate $20.00 for the feeding Program: After every game the children are provided a meal by L.A.C.E.S. This meal is to ensure that the children are able to have at least one meal for that day, and it brings them together to the table as a family. L.A.C.E.S. buys all of the food in Liberia to support the local economy.
Anyone who generously donates equipment or $20.00 to the feeding program will receive a L.A.C.E.S. water bottle as a gift of appreciation for their partnership.
