We had an awesome opportunity to stop out at First Church Of The Open Bible in
Des Moines on Friday for a HUGE garage sale they were putting on. The two-day event was put on to raise money for the church’s Tijuana mission in Mexico. The church is working on expanding their missions base and will be taking a trip down there in April of next year!

              I’m Possible Basketball Clinic Recap

              10569004_10152613652822174_9134417091749453478_n

               

              It was a great morning full of great skill building teaching and drills from Chris Reif with I’m Possible Training at the Pulse Studios this past Friday. We were excited to have many kids come out to the three different time slots that morning… and were they in for some hard, but really good, training!

              10544797_10152614045667174_8447748583022062726_n

               

               

              Watching the clinic for most of the morning, I loved seeing the interactions Chris had with the kids, encouraging them, pushing them, and cracking jokes with them all morning. I could tell the kids were having a lot of fun, and that if they took the things he taught them, they could really improve their skills and game play.

              If you’d like to check out more info about Chris and I’m Possible Training, you can here.

              If you missed the event and want to see some pictures from the clinic, you can here!
