It is heartwarming to see the 5th and 6th grade boys on our team watching out for each other. They proved that they care more about each other than the score. One of our team members lost his glasses during the game, and another player stopped playing and picked up the glasses and handed him to the boy. He displayed Christ-like behavior!! They are learning to play basketball but also to follow Jesus.
