Axel Mendez

Axel was a member of the first ever graduating class of BVSA Rhinos (Guatemala) in 2011.  He won the "Key Player" award that year, meaning he was the most valuable player on the team.  While Axel didn't lead the team in scoring, he was certainly the most important player on the field.  Bringing leadership and stability, with Axel on the field, the team was always confident it could win.


More important than his soccer skills, Axel demonstrated a level of integrity that we found extremely unique.  So much so that we decided to hire him full-time.  When the opportunity to plant BVSA Honduras came along in 2014, Axel committed to leave his native Guatemala and become a missionary to Honduras - making him the first ever missionary from his village of Buena Vista!


Axel plays a critical in the new Academy as we seek to help raise up a new generation of leaders in the village of Travesia! 




Family Support:  Axel gets paid a personal salary from the BVSA operational budget.  His salary easily covers all of his expenses, and also allows him to send some money home to Guatemala to help his family.
