Tenerife Day 5 – June 26, 2013 Wedneday

Midway through the week, another day begins.  The breakfast and prayer time was as it was the past two days, giving us a great way to start the day.  Hearing from God’s Word and praying with fellow believers continues to be a great way to start the day.  Once at the clinic, we were greeted by 53 kids who game to participate in what we had for them.    Many of them tired, they continued to attend and participate in all that we shared with them.  We continue to see players of all ages and abilities extend a hand to fallen players in order to help them up.  Grasping the essence of sportsmanship, these players have begun to incorporate this action into their daily play.  Lunch and then team time were both enjoyed back at our accommodations for the week.  The meal tasted so good as it filled our stomachs and allowed us to take a break to rest as we ate.  Team time consisted of a time of praise and worship in song and prayer.  Praising God for who He is was a part of the team time as well.  Testimonies were given by Reghan and Amy as they each gave God glory for what He has and is doing in their lives.  Right back at it, the second clinic began as previous days and the kids continued to enjoy their time on the court.  Rotating teams for games, the kids patiently waited their turn as two out of three courts were used for full 5 v 5 games.  Following the clinic, the women’s team played in Adele, just like the men the night before.  Some of the girls on the team had been coming to the clinic and we were welcomed to the gym by them.  A spirit of camaraderie was prevalent as the PTR team met and talked with the team from Adeje.  With about 40 fans in the arena, the PTR ladies gave the game all they had.  They worked the ball up court, passing and shooting their way to 46 points.  The men’s team had devised multiple sheers for the women’s team and used them all night long through out the game, keeping the women’s team encouraged and energized.  Although a great number of points, the PTR team was out scored by the Adeje team 60-46.  Keeping their testimony strong, the PTR team never wavered and remained a positive testimony of what has been taught so far this week.  A fantastic dinner ended the night and the PTR teams put their heads on their pillows knowing that they had done much for the Kingdom and in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

For the team,

Coach Brendan
