Soccer player opens up about stay at Faith Mission

Faith Mission Soccer

WICHITA FALLS, TX (TNN) -Wichita Falls Faith Mission was once home for Falls Town Flyer Josh Peloquin and his family.

“We didn’t really have everything. My mom was bouncing back and forth between jobs, and so they opened the door for us allowed us to have a place and gather ourselves and have another press toward life,” said forward, Peloquin.

Josh said that having the opportunity to play semi-professional soccer in his hometown has inspired him to open up about his story.

“Its a testimony. Anything can happen in your life if you can believe it and can image it. Your life can turn around in a blink of an eye. So to be at this part of my life and it be shared, anything is possible,” said Peloquin.

Faith Mission is thrilled to receive the support of the soccer organization at their first home game on Saturday.

"We excited about the flyers coming into town. We're excited about their games and all the things they're going to so for our community. I'm so thankful for them giving us this opportunity," said Steve Sparks, director of Faith Mission.

Josh said to be able to walk back thru the doors that were once open to him and make a difference is a win-win on and off the field.

“To be able to come here and give thanks for what they have done for me and my family and to show them we are products of yall and we have come so far,” said Peloquin.
