Did you know that we reach over 2,000 athletes per year just through sponsoring and hosting tournaments? We also participate in other tournaments as well and most recently our Soccer Academy won a local tournament in Barquisimeto, VZ. Why is that significant? None of these kids are used to “winning” in anything. They are surrounded on all sides by loss. Their country isn’t winning. Their families aren’t winning, and not winning effects all of us physically, mentally, and spiritually.
But this team, lead by Eli Samuel, doesn’t seek to win a corruptible trophy, rather they compete to win that which can’t be taken away. That is the spirit of 1 Corinthians 9:24-25. Please be in prayer for this team as they will be headed to Caracas in December to compete in front of several pro scouts. It’s possible that three of them may garner interest and sign with a professional club. Those same three were all at-risk kids with no hope for the future and couldn’t even afford a pair of shoes. Now they are part of a team with a tremendous opportunity. Thanks for supporting our FCA Academies and giving them the wins they so desperately need.
