Right after the end of their highly successful season, the Westmont Women’s soccer team spent most of the spring not only gearing up for the 2016 season, but in preparation for their triennial team missions trip to Uganda, Africa.
This is the fourth mission’s trip that the Westmont Women’s Soccer Program has taken and each trip has been through a sports ministry organization called the Sports Outreach Institute.
The Warriors departed the United States on May 9th, and left Uganda to return home on May 22nd.
Upon arriving back in Santa Barbara, head coach Chantel Cappuccilli reflected on the team’s experiences in Uganda.
“What we were told before the trip was to expect God to move, but I don’t think any of us were really anticipating the amount that would occur while we were there,” explained Cappuccilli. “I think that seeing Christianity on a global scale is crucial within the development of faith because it just gives one a different perspective and I think a new perspective is what we came away with.
