“Hola!” We kicked off our first full day in San Jose with a soccer training session on the field of a Nazarene University. It didn’t stop raining for the duration of training, and our goal keepers were treated to a pretty intense mud bath.
The afternoon was filled with the joy of smiles, soccer, and piggyback rides. Our team visited an elementary school in San Jose and joined the children for recess. The children adored the game time, but we pray that our biggest impact could be in the Good News that was shared through two team testimonies and the “Wordless Book” message from Coach Meade.On Sunday we play University of Costa Rica at their game facility (ranked top 3 in the country), we shared a meal with their team at a missionary’s house. During that time, Lauren–our goalkeeper shared her testimony through a translator. Praise the Lord that Hannah and Taylor individually prayed with a girl from the team afterwards and she accepted Christ! Many of the other girls were asking good questions. The coach of that team shared his testimony as well. This was a huge development because his team did not know he was a believer.
We are fervently praying that the Good News we were able to share would be grown. Thank you for your prayers and being part of our team from afar!
