Many of the young males and females at the Getsemaní Baptist Church in Limon, Costa Rica, are passionate soccer fans, whose passion translates from the stands to the field and from the pew to the prayer closet.
With this passion for football, many of the youth and some of the adults in the congregation formed a team and started playing against other church teams and secular teams in the Caribbean town of Port Limon. Though they enjoyed playing, doing so without uniforms was a major concern. Was God interested in soccer uniforms? Was this something they could pray about? They did!!!
After over a year and a half of praying for uniforms and waiting upon God, CrossTraining was looking for opportunities to bless and serve teams around the world with donated gear from the Colorado Rapids. Associate Chaplain Hugo Venegas, after being instructed by Lead Chaplain Brad Kenny to find possible recipients in Costa Rica, was overjoyed to inform that he had contacted a worship leader and avid soccer fan, Jeffry Rosales about whether they had a team and were in need of uniforms. Jeffry’s responded with some angst, “We have been praying over a year and a half for uniforms for our church team!”
During a recent trip in late January/early February, Chaplain Vengas was able to deliver an answer to the prayers of the church team. Stay tuned for pictures of the church group using the uniforms in league play!
