Pure Sport

The beginning of the sports ministry in La Carpio started with a game of whiffle ball in the street led by Michael Takemura. That is where Lalo saw God working and soon joined by becoming the bat boy. Most of these kids went on to become the best soccer team that La Carpio has ever seen, winning several championships. The kid holding the picture of friends from a previous mission trip only made it to 17. Lalo went on to become the best water boy in the entire barrio. Michael is still remembered and often thought of in La Carpio. In fact, the computer lab is even named after him. The kid in the very last pic went on to become one of the founders and the original captain of the soccer team. One of his drawings even became the team logo.
