Lessons, lessons and more lessons....2016
Swim Competition in Hermosillo on September 24, 2016
How it all began....
Our Swim Team began in May 2016. The three Mexican children on the team had never swam before and began with a fear of the water but now can't wait to get in.
Our team has a competition in Hermosillo on Saturday, September 24, 2016 which they are all very excited about.
The team members are Juliana, Sandra, Julio, Cole, Mason, Erika and Faith.
Jennifer is their volunteer teacher who started the team and adores these kids. We are so thankful for all that she does!!
Phyllis Lilischkies from Siesta Realty has paid all the costs of training for which we are very grateful!
A specialized swim coach was hired to help prepare for the competition and his name is Antonio.
We are so happy to see the kids enjoying this new activity, conquering their fears and being willing to compete locally.
GO "Hurricanes!!!" GO!!!
Stay tuned for the competition results!!
Conquering Our Fears in Hermosillo....
We did it... Our first ever Swim Competition and what a hoot!! The kids had so much fun and they all came home with ribbons. We are so proud of them!
The team is now anxious for even more practice time to improve their performance before the next competition.
Check out the photos. It was a big crowd with kids of all ages loving the water and the opportunity to display their skills. Lots of excited and proud fans in the crowd too taking pictures and smiling with glee.
We are so thankful to God for giving our Ancla kids this new exciting experience and to all the people that helped to make it happen!
