It was a great weekend for El Calor soccer! On Saturday the 3rd division team won 3-0 here in San Pedro, and the San Pedro 4th division team won 3-2, both playing against a team from Cuidad Juarez. Today our 4th division team based in Torreon won 3-0 and our Torreon-based 3rd division team won 1-0.
It's still early in the season and there is room for improvement in all the teams, but we are looking forward to another great season. With our newest 3rd division team, under the direction of a former El Calor player, there is even more opportunity to reach out to players and their families with the Gospel.
Please be in prayer for the El Calor organization, for the players and their coaches, and for Stephen and Marcela and the group of people who help run the teams. There are drivers, cooks, pastors, security people, team and technical assistants, in addition to the coaching staff and administration, and they are all necessary for the teams to function well. Please also pray for new sponsors for the teams - sponsorship is essential for the teams' survival, and this year has been a difficult year for fundraising. With your prayer partnership, you will help ensure the continuing impact of El Calor.
