Character and Compassion - On and Off the Court

I coach the middle school girls basketball team at Christian Academy of Indiana, and these girls have shown exceptional character and compassion throughout the season. One story in particular really emphasizes their desire to share Christ's love.

During our final game of the season, a player from the opposing team suffered a severe knee injury. As we waited for her to receive treatment, my team immediately bowed their heads to pray for her. After the game (a victory for us) as we gathered with the other team for prayer, our team not only prayed for the injured player by name, but literally carried her to the locker room.

At that moment, with tears in my eyes, I thought to myself, this is why we do what we do. These girls understand that it's more than just a game of basketball - that we are called to be disciples at all times, in all circumstances. I could not be more proud of them.
