True Game Spirit....

Kevin, my hubby, volunteers as the Commissioner for our community's Church Basketball League. Last night, he made an executive decision and called off the games in order for the players to help out our community and rural areas in fighting the current floods.

The teams responded in such a positive manner! In true spirit of teamwork, they showed up at the local sandbagging volunteer sites and went to work: filling, tying, lifting sandbags to help our their fellow neighbors.

This is the true spirit of the game--teamwork with a purpose.....

Here's Jessica, Natalie, and Elizabeth-

Here's a team hard at work-

And here's Kevin's best bud Clint and friend doing their part--

Thanks to everyone who went out to help. Please pray for the families in our area that are being affected by the floods!
