Kicks for Christ

Trey is twelve years old and gave his heart to the Lord when he was about six years old. Three years ago Trey’s mom read him a book and in it was a story about a boy who raised money by shooting basketball hoops. Trey was inspired and started “Kicks For Christ”. While travelling with his soccer team, he used the opportunity to ask for sponsors, and every time he scored they would give him money.

Trey's father came up with the phrase, “I beat the goalie, God gets the glory!” Trey’s mother Denise also said, “ This project has helped Trey gain confidence in his speaking abilities and grow in his faith and trust in God”. This year Trey had 31 sponsors, scored ten goals, had seven assists, and with God’s help raised $1,510.39! He felt the Lord was telling him to put the money towards clean water wells and decided to partner with Life Outreach’s Water For Life outreach. Thanks to Trey and his willingness to allow God to use his God-given gifts to make a difference, was able to supply 114 people fresh water for life!
