First Day of Basketball in the Public School

Yesterday, September 26th was the beginning of practices is the public school next to our house here in Carpiona! Rogerio had girls and boys. from 3 to 5pm. He was so excited to get started. Now they just need to make the basketball hoops for the court. Thankfully a group of Americana left lots of basketballs. We are excited for the new kids that we will get to meet and begin sharing with then about Jesus. Will there be a Simone or Priscila ?? Who now run the ministry in Nova Odessa. Or some of the other girls in that first group who we love like daughters. We were remembering the first group of boys. Some of the older boys that we worked with heard about Jesus but decided to go their own ways never following God. Praise God some of them who were Timothy's age that we worked with for more then seven years really have taken the message seriously. They are seeking God!! God has giving Rogerio a special love for all kids rich and poor and a gift to work with them and encourage them to follow Jesus. I am alway thankful to be helping him although he does most of the work.
