Club Ricochet has been finished for a couple of weeks now. I have to admit, I was a littttle excited about having my Saturdays back but since I am only here for a few more weeks before I go home for a bit, Dana and I have decided to spend Saturdays playing football (soccer) with some of the children and tennis and ping pong.
We have about 10 kids who we meet around noon on Saturdays and walk with them to the park to play. They love football and so do I so it is SO much fun for all of us! This Saturday we will introduce tennis and ping pong to them.
Here are some pictures from the first week we played with the kids. After that first time, every time they see Dana or I they are asking to go to the park again. Since the weather is so nice now, it makes for a great Saturday!
As I have said before, one of my biggest goals here was to build deeper relationships with these kids. It is hard to connect to all of them on a Sunday when we have our church for them. But when we work in smaller groups and spend 1 on 1 time with them, we see a completely different, respectful side to these kids. Dana and I love playing sports, and love these kids so we couldn’t think of a better way to spend our Saturdays!
