Yuri Lopez: Lover of Jesus Christ + Fellowship of Christian Athletes Missionary
I have overcome a challenging situation in a young age. Surviving for a better life and a better future and not letting any obstacles get in my way to pursue my dreams. Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
My endurance grows every day to get stronger and stronger because I have put my eyes on Jesus and I have faith in Him. Even when I have straggles in my life I trust in God and I know He directs me in the path. He has set me free from my hurt and pain. I have accomplished a lot of my goals because I have trusted Him every second of my life. He has helped me and continues helping me to pursue my dreams and to continue to glorify His name.
Now I serve as a full-time missionary with Fellowship Of Christian Athletes and continue monthly fundraising for the ministry. By servings with FCA, I have the opportunity to use the platform of soccer to coach soccer to young athletes, as well as have the privilege to expose others to the Gospel.
