Just this morning I received a poignant update from Tammy regarding this week's soccer practice: "Soccer has been a great way for us to build community a midst the pre-teen/ teens in our program, while also connecting with them over God's Word and teaching them its relevance to their day-to-day lives. This past week, I was teaching a group of 23 girls from Matt 6 re: Do Not Worry. It's a different thing to teach from that passage to a group of kids growing up with single parents, in a slum, with long term illnesses ( i.e. leprosy, HIV). To be honest, I was wondering a bit why God led me to that passage for them... I mean,
who am I to tell these girls not to worry, when I don't worry about rats crawling over my head at night, nor do I have rain falling on my head in my bedroom which I share with my 5 other family members, etc. But God taught me that the lesson there was less about not worrying and more about faith in a God who cares for us. Do we trust Him? Who is Jesus, and in light of His unchanging character, can we trust Him with our heart's deepest needs and fears? I've never led girls' clubs or done much teaching of this age group, but I have loved these Sat mornings of conversation over God's Word followed by soccer with a bunch of squealing girls in skirts. :) "
