Basketball Teams 2009

These are the kids that are involved in the program here in Brazil. this is the outdoor coutr where they practice. It is a little club with soccer fields and a swimming pool which the kids get to use on Wednesdays. Rogerio and the kids go every morning at 7:30 to practice they do all different kinds of things each morning. The practice is from 8-10. Some days they run, swim, study, play basketball. I admire my husband so much because he is so faithful to God and this program. His prayer is always that God will change these kids life. He goes in the afternoos then to have pracitice with the older boys. These are the younger boys with Timothy. Priscila helps with this team

These are the girls. Jessica and Stephanie play on this team. They are the youngest but do a good job. Simone helps with this team. Both Simone and Priscila are in college and have scholarships with AIA. Many people are involved in paying their tuition for them to get to help Rogerio. They do an excellent job. This year Simone has an academic scholarship which helps pay for her college too.

The little guy with the broken arm Mateus is the best player. He does not miss a practice. Our prayer is that these little kids will know what it is to have a personal relationship with Chirst and not just have a religion. Most of them would say that they are Catholic.
