My Soccer Boys




In El Mogote we are blessed to have another missions team from a non-denominational church in Oklahoma City that works with the people, teaching them trades and providing medical care among other things. Ron and Shelly have been a real blessing to me. They´ve been in the area for about 7 years and are able to answer a lot of questions that I have about dealing with the people. They recently started a soccer program that spans 12 colonies (neighborhoods) and is a great outreach to the community. Two of my boys are participating in this and their first game was a week ago. They were precious in their uniforms. It was the first time they had ever played in uniform and they all had a blast. I loved watching them play. We were sooo excited when they won their game and it was Fernando that made the only goal. They are such great kids, I´m so glad they´ve been given this opportunity.

Wow! When it rains, it pours--so many entries at once! It brought me so much joy to look at all your pics. It looks like you've been up to a lot of great stuff (as usual.) I think of you often!
