A big shout out to A2S for the empowerment camp. You guys were a blast. God bless you all.

Through two days of camp, I really learned a lot a lot about not only basketball, but I learned how to make new friends and so much more. This was all thanks to Access to Success. Please keep it up, impacting our lives positively and teaching us a lot about life.

Throughout the camp, I saw Godly humility in Andrew’s team of volunteers from the United States and the coaches. I pray God will strengthen your hands to empower the weak, and most of all, that God will give you all more blessings for your time, resources and patience. I’m proud of you all. Thanks!

I’m impressed with the way the camp was organized this year. This has really given me the tonic to start something like this. Life is all about touching lives and impacting others with what God has endowed us. This is my concept of success.

By the time we were ready to head home, I knew the words well enough to sing along and experience the power behind the simple lyrics of a song that had become an anthem of my entire trip: Hold somebody Tell them that you love them Lift your hands together And praise the Lord!

Upon our entrance, we were welcomed by hugs, smiles, handshakes, applause and warm greetings, all of which moved me to tears. As we stood in front of the congregation full of kids and volunteers, I became overwhelmed with emotions as everything I had been doing for A2S during the last 10 months became real in that moment — the children, the stories, the church. They were no longer distant images in my head; they were all right in front of me. I have never been so moved by anything, and I knew right then that this was not the end but only the beginning for me.

I thank you and the entire A2S crew for the warmth of love and the selfless services you all showed towards us at UNIBEN. We appreciate and love you guys. You left your comfort zone and came all the way here to empower, impact and inspire a broken people. You showed us a bigger picture than we could ever dare to imagine and, most importantly, you gave us the tools to achieve it. A2S because of you we can think better, play better, and we have become better people both on and off the court. May God Almighty bless you guys and fill each of your hearts with more love and passion for what you do. AMEN!!
Raymond Ugeru, A2S Camper
The final realization that I have come to is how perfectly this trip encompassed every aspect of my life. Though I have been on trips with other nonprofits, I have never been able to include one of the largest parts of my life: basketball. Basketball is such a huge part of my life and to have the ability to combine serving, faith, and basketball, means the world to me.
