“Because of this opportunity, we are really humble for it... So…How can I describe Soldados De Cristo… it’s a really really good way of learning how to understand life and God. And how can we live our life, and have God inside our life so we can have more success; we can have all of those things that we never thought we were going to have; but we have it now, because we believe in God. And we weren’t close to him; and now we are close to him. Thanks to Kevin Cooper and Soldados de Cristo now we are better people, and we understand God and how to live with God in our hearts.” -Kendrick Escalara of Pinones
””Soldados De Cristo has changed my life in a way that I never expected. Kevin Cooper mentored me back onto the spiritual path and through the program I have been able to acquire tools to likewise mentor other young men to reach their full potential. Soldados De Cristo provides me a way to help the communities not only in Dorado, but all over Puerto Rico. We’ve been able to use the game we love as an excellent vehicle in doing so as well. I look forward to using my testimony as inspiration for more young men, training their souls through Christ and there bodies through basketball;”

“Soldados is a blessing for me and for our island, it helps me solidify my relationship with God and to bring others to know him, through the game I love. As a basketball coach, I have the opportunity to impact youth and their families and now through this organization, give them other tools to make them better people and strengthen their families. I met Pastor Kevin Cooper several years ago and I have witnessed how this ministry has helped young people get off the streets of Puerto Rico and find God's purpose for them. I'm proud to be part of this resource that through Lord's word and sports is making a better Puerto Rico, also a better world. Is something that we need and I thank God for it”.
