I am not a big sports fan...
But I do have a favorite athlete.
Her name is Luz Maria and she is a soccer star!
During our visit to Honduras last month, we had the amazing opportunity to watch our sponsored child play in a soccer tournament. How many sponsors get to do that?? It was amazing to get to step into Luz Maria's life and see all of the beautiful facets of her life--including this intense, athletic side.
Soccer (or futbol) is huge in Honduras. The "cancho" was packed with adults and children who came out to watch the tournament. Girls and boys teams competed.
Right now, the entire Latin world is consumed in World Cup fever. Jerseys, backpacks, wrist bands, and even calendars featuring World Cup teams are in high demand. On game nights, the streets empty as fans go in to watch their home team represent their country.
Do you have a soccer fan in your Compassion family? I am sure that a letter about the World Cup would be a big hit! Be sure to include some of these fun, free printables.
