2017 Guatemala Sports Mission Trip

Dear Calvary Sports Family thanks again for your support! We had one of the best mission trips ever Praise the Lord!

This past summer Calvary Chapel Sports was blessed to work with children in Guatemala. The primary purpose of the trip was to bring the gospel to children using what they already love, fútbol! The Calvary Sports team hosted several soccer clinics around the poorest communities in and around Antigua, Guatemala. We were blessed to share the Gospel using the J316 soccer balls as a tool.  Among the areas served were, the Potter’s Field Kids in Antigua and the Arms of Jesus Children Mission in Parramos. In addition, we took advantage of every opportunity to minster at various fields where children were currently playing soccer. This flexibility allowed us to enjoy many “God planned” moments where lives were touched by hearing the Gospel, being prayed for, or just simply receiving a soccer ball. Additionally, we were also able to bring water filters to a small disadvantaged community of believers in an area where clean water is not readily available. We assembled the water filters for them and taught them how to use the filters. In addition to the filters, we distributed basic food items to these families as well. It was a day filled with blessings not only for these families, but we were all equally as blessed by their love and appreciation. All in all, it was an amazing week filled with the leading of the Holy Spirit with His presence felt wherever we went. His blessing abounded from the moment we arrived we were given a beautiful house to stay for just our team, our devotional times were amazing, and we saw His favor upon us wherever we would go. Psalms 133 says, “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity…. for the Lord bestows His blessings, even life forevermore.” He took a group of His unperfect children with their various personalities and brought us together for one purpose and here we lived out this Psalm.
