Basketball outreach

One game they LOVE to play here is Basketball.  Sports is an awesome way for us to reach the teenage boys and girls.  Last week we put a team together and went over to the Island of Panay and did a basketball outreach in the village of Carla. The Filipino girls put us American girls to shame! haha :) We were playing on a dirt and gravel court. Most of them were either barefoot or in flip-flops and they still played better than us :)  

 A crowd of parents and children watched from the sidelines and cheered us on :)

Most of the American girls in this picture were here with a team from California.  They stayed for two and a half weeks and helped with construction on the school and also did tutoring.
