Spain Tenerife, Day 8, June 27, 2014

The last day of the first week as arrived. Tired, but ready for the task ahead of us, we set out to finish what we started in the towns of Los Cardones and Adeje.  Using every minute possible, we took the opportunity to finish the week strong in the skill areas with which we have been working.  The kids have shown improvement and continue to allow us to work with them both in the areas of sportsmanship and basketball.  We even assisted in the completion of the basketball clubs competitions and 3 v 3 tournament.  It was awesome being able to participate and assisted the club’s director, Eneko.  A very well organized man, he had everything orchestrated to give the kids the best experience possible.  As a part of the closing program, a mix of PTR, the missionaries, and the youth from our partner church put on a skit which demonstrated the value of having Jesus in your life.  Fun yet poignant, the message was clear that having Jesus in your life is very valuable, and may even call you to walk away from friends until they choose Him.  PTR also participated in the program and gave away PTR t-shirts as awards for the hard workers and those that demonstrated sportsmanship throughout the week.  Excited to receive the same shirt that the coaches wear, the kids were also excited to be selected from among their peers as outstanding in their efforts.  With the last event in the southern part of the island complete, we packed our bags and moved out of our home base into a hotel just for one night.  This move will help us be prepared for trip to the north, where our partner church is located.

For the team, Coach Brendan
