Soccer & Spiritual Emphasis

The High School Boys with the Staff and some 8th GradersIan with one of the high school girls

While my good friend Aaron might argue that those things could never possibly fit together, somehow in God's sovereignty he made it happen. This past week was Spiritual Emphasis Week at VCS. A team from Texas came to spend the week sharing with the kids during our Chapel meetings and it was great.
of the guys, Joel Myer, played soccer all his life in Texas (so we were instantly friends). The Lord worked it out that one of our teams we were scheduled to play cancelled on us and so we worked in a game against Staff/Alumni/Friends. It was rather humiliating for us old guys. We dominated early on but soon youth took over and carried the day. The boys managed to beat us 4-0 but the game was much closer than the score.
We all had a great time and it was really awesome for the S.E.W. team to spend some quality time with the kids outside of the normal "school" setting. I really believe that God used this week to encourage many of our kids in their walk with Him. Please pray that the staff will have wisdom and discernment from the Lord about following up with our kids who responded to the S.E.W. team.
