Two former students of mine who are members of the church are attending a school up in the mountains north of here. A week or two ago they played in a soccer game that pitted the town where they attend school against players from a town out at the highway. One of them scored the first goal of the game. The other played goalie and was not scored on during the game. They were the heroes of the game, and they learned to play at the WFL school. They not only learned to play soccer, but they learned to play in a respectable way, and it’s serving them well. Just tonight as I am writing these lines they played another game. Jude, played goalie again. He scored a goal on a penalty kick, and his team won. He sent me a test message saying that he scored the goal for his team mates and ‘fans’. Then he thanked me for helping learn to play. That’s a sweet moment in the life of an educator.
