Zihua and soccer and hope...

Our time in beautiful Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa, Mexico was amazing, We enjoyed time with our daughter, Brie, who began her senior year this week. After  See more

THE STORY:

A huge thank you to those who gave to help outfit a girls soccer team!  Our family just returned from Beautiful Zihuatenajo and met folks from Zihua Christian Fellowship. (http://www.zihuachristian.org)  The needs in this area are extensive.  We saw poverty like we have never witnessed before.  One way to improve lives for teens in this area, is through a soccer program that Coach Cristian Cruz has started.  Coach Cristián has over 30 girls that he is sharing God's love and investing in their lives through soccer.  

While Zihua/Ixtapa area are expensive tourist areas, the workers are paid little and the extreme poverty is often hidden. It is not uncommon so see kids playing soccer in the park barefoot because they can't afford cleats. 

Our goal was to provide soccer uniforms, cleats and equipment for the entire team so they can join in a league. We were able to provide most of the equipment and uniforms for one team. However, there  are other girls that would like to play but need equipment. 

 All funds will go directly to them and are tax deductible.  However this site charges a processing fee, you can support them directly through their website (http://www.zihuachristian.org) just note that it is for  "Girls soccer". We will also send new or used shin guards and cleats to them if you want to contribute.

Thanks for your help!
