2. Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite " Kaka "


Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite (born at April 22, 1982 in Brasilia, Brazil), commonly known as "Kaka" is one of the biggest stars of modern professional football.

When he was 18, almost got paralyzed for the rest of his life, when after a wrong diving attempt, he suffered a vertebral fracture. He believes that Jesus Christ healed the damaged vertebra and allowed him to regain his strength and become the successful football player he is today. He never forgets to raise his hands to the sky every time that achieves goals, as thanksgiving and gratitude to God.

Kaka married on December 23, 2005 with Caroline Celico in Church of believers in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

"My wife and I decided to wait up until our wedding day without having completed our relationship. It was hard for me to wait, as a young man. I was passionate with my wife but we choosed to hold on. This is also something that the Bible tells us to do . The first night of our wedding was amazing.

The majority of people say that after marriage there is no longer this desire to come together with their partner, that there are no desires. But this is not true, my wife is the one that I love and it worthed to wait.

Many people are surprised and amazed by me, but I think that this was the best decision. I am a Christian and believe in these values, because it is something that the Bible tells us to do, the Word of God and we should obey.

Our life is very beautiful. Temptations always exist, but by the grace of God we try to avoid them.

It's really nice to follow Christ.

He confessed in an interview: "In the final of the World Cup (World Cup) in 1994 at the Rose Bowl in the United States between Brazil and Italy and after the regular time ended 0-0, were led to the process of penalties.

Concerning the fact that I invited Jesus Christ into my heart, I have felt the grace, love and power of God in the most important moments of my life. Not only the easy ones but also the difficult ones.

To get to the World Cup we played 52 games, we spent four years of hard preparation and a whole month with great visibility from the media worldwide.

But the final moment was between two people: the Italian Baggio and me ... I noticed that he kept his head down and looked insecure. I was filled in with confidence in my heart. At that moment, praying to God, I knew for sure that either I would repel the penalty or that the shoot would be out. And so it just happened. When I saw that the ball went high out, all I wanted to do was to kneel and glorify God because I knew that the victory was His. He deserves all the glory. "
