For the past couple of months, S has been enjoying a game that has fallen out of favor in the US; dodgeball. I think the main reason she signed-up to play was to be with her friends, but she has made a good effort at attending before-school and weekend practices. Last week she took a shot to the face and now wears the honor badge of having received a bloody nose. When she came home from school and told me, I said, “Oh gee, I’m sorry. Are you OK?” She looked at me and said, “Oh, hmm, I thought you were just going to laugh at me.” She knows me well.
Here’s photo from a previous tournament.
The season’s second tournament on Sunday with a co-ed tournament for kids in our section of Sanda city. I watched two kids get slammed in the face and leave the court in tears. Hence, the reason for the game no longer being played in the US. S’s team took fourth. I told her, “Not good enough,” to which she rolled her eyes and replied, “Whatever.”
So what was good about spending four hours there? Besides hanging out with family and friends, here are two divine appointments.
It was great to take the Church to the community and be a Kingdom influence.
