Ministry in Michoacan

Last Sunday, September 13, Stephen traveled to Uruapan, Michoacan to preach in a small church. The founders of the church, a pastor and a doctor, met Stephen through the El Calor soccer ministry and after seeing how El Calor has progressed as an organization and as a ministry, decided to start their own church. They began two years ago with just two members, but now there are more than 50 people in the congregation. As the church has grown the members have reached out to different sports teams and now work closely with two 3rd Division soccer teams in Michoacan, and have contact with other teams and organizations. It is exciting and encouraging to see God continue to use sport, and especially soccer, to reach many people. Here is a short video from the church service where Stephen preached.
