08 Sep Basketball League Underway
We told you last month about Scott Galloway and Bobby McVey coming to Honduras to conduct training for our DESEO team as well as a basketball camp for children in our program. We are seeing the fruits of their labor as the children are really learning the sport. They practice two afternoons a week, and the last week of the month they have games. Parents and friends are invited to watch the games and the children really love showing off their new skills. Watching their faces when they make a basket or steal the ball is priceless. The competition is real, but it is especially wonderful to see them high fiving their friends on the opposite team when they get a basket. We are certain that our implementation of basketball league devotionals, scripture memory, and prayer produces a whole new environment where competition can be fun and not a reason to resent or be angry with the team that may have beaten you. We are so thankful for this opportunity to teach this sport to the children, but we are especially thankful for the extra time it gives our team to build relationships with the children while at the same time leading them towards a deeper relationship with Jesus.
