Last night, like most every Tuesday and Thursday night, we had a great time in the park. Our kids from our two neighborhoods played a Crosstown Scrimmage. These kids are coming from two rival gangs’ territories, but soccer has no boundaries. They are between the ages of 19 and 8, but everyone is respected on the field. We are encouraging the older ones and help them to connect with local colleges’ teams to try out. Some of them have a really good chance to get selected and to become scholarship athletes. We hope that one day the younger ones will form our first Urban Seahorses teams.
As usual, we had prayer, pizza, fellowship and games on our patio after the game. We are becoming a big soccer-family under God. 🙂
