Valor Request for Costa Rica

Feb 20, 2020

Valor Christian High School Soccer is returning to Tamarindo, Costa Rica in what has become an annual tradition. This year’s trip will feature sixteen boys from the soccer program. The team will fly down to Costa Rica during the upcoming spring break and business week — March 14 – March 23. The team will look to build two homes for needy families during the day. At night, the team will minister to the soccer community through building relationships, competing in games, and sharing the gospel with athletes from the local area. It is during this time that the team will also look to give gear away to players who need new cleats, goalie gloves, and jerseys.

We look forward to changing lives through the global game of soccer and building a couple houses in the Guanacaste region for poor families. We feel blessed to serve!

Tamarindo has gone from being a small fishing village 20+ years ago, to now, being more of a small, sleepy surfing and tourist town. Behind the tourism, a lot of poverty exists among the local people. Valor Christian High School Soccer is partnering with Mercy Home Ministries and builder Maximo Cisneros to build “Mercy” homes for needy local families that he has identified. Additionally, they will be reaching out through soccer camps and clinics where they will distribute soccer gear to the many children who do not have shoes, cleats, shin guards, or even soccer balls.
