Boy Who Wore Lionel Messi Soccer Jersey Made Out of A Plastic Bag Meets His Idol

A 6-year-old boy from Afghanistan who idolized a world-famous soccer star got to meet his hero. Earlier this year, a photo of Murtaza Ahmadi wearing a Lionel Messi jersey fashioned from a plastic bag was shared all over the internet and caught the player’s attention. At the time, UNICEF tracked the boy down and gave him a present from Messi, a signed jersey and soccer ball. Almost a year after that good fortune, Ahmadi met Messi when FC Barcelona was in Qatar to play an exhibition match.

Dear Sister and Brother,

1. God IS in control.

2. Life is not always fair, it rains on the just and the unjust…we should not compare our lives to others but focus on the plan God has for us.

3. Bad things will happen in this world, but God promised us a home in heaven if we believe in Jesus. A home without sorrow, pain or death…where we never will grow old.
