For many kids, soccer is an activity that will keep them from becoming entangled with street gangs and drug dealers. It is also one successful way ministries in places like Mexico reach kids with the Gospel. Every soccer ball you give will show a child they are loved.
In one part of Mexico where the drug cartels hold a lot of influence, a Christian soccer program gives teens a safe and fun activity after school. Some kids from this program have gone on to serve in the mission field. Others have played pro soccer in Mexico. Many lives have been transformed by the Gospel.
