In South America, fútbol (soccer) is king. Everyone plays the game, loves the game, and idolizes the soccer local heroes. Some people started to wonder, “if people love soccer so much, can we use this is a bridge to tell people about Jesus?” This is exactly what Joseph and Kimberly Frerichs asked themselves, and they decided to do something about it.
In this episode of RTC, Marc and Fuller sit down with Joseph Frerichs to talk about his journey. He is a third generation missionary to Peru, which means he grew up in the country and is a native. He has been playing soccer competitively in Peru since he was a kid, but left Peru and professional soccer to study ministry here in the states. Now, it’s time to head back.
We talk with Joseph about what is was like as a missionary kid, what it takes to get back on the field, what kingdom successes he has seen since starting his mission work, and what it means for his family to uproot their American lives to head back to Peru. At the end of the interview, Kimberly joins us and shares her heart, too! We know you’re going to love this conversation.
