Well, I have been doing lots of coaching volleyball lately. We have had games around 4 - 5 times a week. Carey has been the biggest fan we have by traveling around to all the games and tournaments and sticking it out whether it is a a three game day or an all day tourney. He does so much by getting out on the floor during warm ups, helps by shagging balls, is the biggest and loudest cheerleader in the stands and even kept clock for us last night!
Our volleyball girls have improved so much with not only their volleyball skills but their internal strength and faith as well. Coach Kemp and I are trying to instill good values and also faith in our Father within each girl. We pray with the girls before and after the games, we teach them to be humble with their wins and to praise God when we win and when we lose. When we first started out, the only ones praying were Coach and I and now we ask the girls who wants to pray, we have several that will pray one after another. The other night on the way to a game, the girls were singing worship songs in the bus!!!!
My heart was filled with so much emotion during that bus ride! I am so proud to have been a part of each and every one of their lives.
We are going to have a party at our house for the 15 Varsity girls before regionals and watch Facing the Giants. (If you have not seen the movie, it is a MUST!) It's a great inspirational movie that a church made with the actors being people in the church, for example, the leading lady is the secretary!!!! Please pray for these girls before then and pray for us to have the right words to share with them. Carey and I have been praying for an awakening in Lawton for the youth and I am hoping that this is the start. We are praying that God will use us and this house for Him and His desires.
God Bless You!
