God willing, we plan to open our academy in Travesia, Honduras in early 2018! We've been active in the community for more than 2 years now, and looking forward to relaunching the ministry. Thankfully, coaches Peter and Milton are staying involved with the Rhinos, and taking care of the ministry property, while we make final preparations and train new leadership.
On a recent trip to Travesia, we were thankful to have 30 of the rhinos show up for an afternoon of soccer, games, and pizza.
It was exciting to reconnect with them, and we were encouraged to see their excitement for the re-opening of the academy. We are super thankful to our local coaches for continuing to play in the local league and for helping keep the Rhino Pride alive!
While God is putting our new team of missionaries together, we are working hard on getting the soccer field ready.

Our goal is to have a quality 9v9 field, equipped with lights, so that we can train at night in order to get some relief from the 100+ degree days.
