Timothy Project 2018: Full Bags for Costa Rica

Mar 15, 2018

This past Sunday, the Valor Costa Rica Discovery Team gathered to pack for the trip. All of the collected soccer gear had to be crammed into bags and distributed as the team prepares to head down to Costa Rica. While there, the team will build a couple of homes and host a number of soccer camps and clinics.

Parents and families of the team members came later to pray over and commission the team before leaving. After listening to many of the leaders share about the trip, I offered a brief reflection from Isaiah 58, and specifically verses 11 & 12 as an encouragement:

The Lord will guide you continually,
    giving you water when you are dry
    and restoring your strength.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
    like an ever-flowing spring.
Some of you will rebuild the deserted ruins of your cities.
    Then you will be known as a rebuilder of walls
    and a restorer of homes.

With the poverty that exists in Costa Rica, students and team leaders will have a great opportunity to repair and rebuild — more than brick and mortar, but relationships with God.

The Valor team made a request to us for gear and through Soccer Chaplains United’s Timothy Project, we were able to provide the following:

  • 40 soccer balls

    Costa Rica items packed and ready to be delivered!

  • 90 jerseys
  • 100 pairs of socks
  • 14 pairs of cleats
  • 144 cones
  • 100 sliders
  • 10 whistles

Below are some photos from the packing day.

Over 30 bags of soccer gear!

It took nearly 3 hours to sort, clean, and pack.

Boots had to be sorted, cleaned and banded together.

There were a lot of soccer balls to deflate.
