The Buena Vista Sports Academy exists... to take the love of Jesus to tough places, evangelize and disciple young men, pray for the Holy Spirit to light them on fire, and expect entire communities to come to Christ as a result.   Currently working in Guatemala, Honduras, and West Africa, BVSA is more than a "soccer ministry" - it's an evangelism & discipleship ministry!  Using the international language of soccer as a tool, we aim to break generational chains of sin, poverty, addiction, and spiritual lostness in tough places around the world.    What began as a simple step of faith in 2008 has grown into an amazing display of God's provision through the generous support of his people.  We have watched Him faithfully provide for everything we were dreaming for - and more - which has bolstered our confidence in Him and His plans for reaching more young people through our BVSA Planted Academies.   Pray with us as we seek to give the hope of Jesus to these boys, their current and future families, and their entire communities!

Love for Ethiopia 
Our mission statement at Love For Ethiopia is to help the marginalized children of Ethiopia break their cycles of poverty by providing them with a quality education and the hope of Jesus Christ. We do this by finding people, families, churches, or groups that want to not only sponsor a child monetarily but also create a relationship with their child in Ethiopia. We encourage sponsors to write letters, send pictures and even come with us to Ethiopia to visit their child.  The majority of our children there are orphans so they really cherish the love they get from their sponsors.

Love Guatemala 

Vision:  Love Guatemala exists to give hope to Guatemalans through the gospel of Jesus Christ and vocational training. 
Love Guatemala is providing vocational training to give hope and build relationships and share the gospel. They currently have the following vocational training schools: art, cooking, carpentry, English and accelerated adult educational programs where older students can finish their elementary and middle school education. In the future they will be adding high school as well. They also serve the community through a feeding center, medical center and additional economical aid. In 2018 they started a church called New Life Church to "Help all people experience the fullness of the new life in Christ." 2 Corinthians 5:17
Future Vision: Love Guatemala plans to begin additional vocational schools, a Bible Institute to train Latinos to take the gospel to the nations and more churches.
