Boys Basketball Team

After a week of tryouts and a week of practice, the boys boiled down to this group of 7th and 8th graders.  Next week they have to go back to school, but we hope to keep practicing twice a week, then enter them in area tournaments and see if we can show the power of passing, rebounding, defense, and teamwork.

Our team of coaches is coming together and starting to solidify as well.  Darhai on the left is our plumber and fix-it man from the Cama project center.  Next is Tobo, probably the best basketball player in town, and very useful in showing the skills needed to excell to the highest levels of league play in Mongolia.  Last year he was voted MVP of the All-Mongolia Leauge All-star game.  Then there is Coach Toya.  She works at this Gym we're using, which is the nicest one in Darhan.  She is also quite a good player in her own right.  Having a woman coach is helpful for pulling together the details and working with our girls team, aslo 7th and 8th grade.

Pray that God will use love for basketball to build high-trust relationships with families who discover the grace, truth and love of Jesus.
