Memphis Tri-State Elite Basketball

Several weeks ago, someone from my Sunday School class at church asked if I’d be willing to help out the Memphis Tri-State Elite Basketball team with photos for a website. Basically, the site was designed for the group of inner city girls to help receive basketball scholarships. In addition, the team travels and plays in several tournaments each season. I just didn’t know how I could say “NO” to this project. It hit close to home I must admit. Looking back at my own high school days, I can vividly remember the time others spent helping me to receive all the scholarships that may be available just so I could attend college. To say we were poor is putting it mildly! I was the only child in my family to graduate high school, and I was the only member of my immediate family to attend and graduate college. I really couldn’t say “YES” fast enough.

So, long story short, I met up with Keith and Kim Grant at Germantown Baptist Church for these photos! I was so glad I could help these guys out, and I hope the photos for the site help these ladies receive the scholarships they need to go to college. I hope you’ll join me in praying for The Grants and the other leaders of this initiative as they lead this mission God has placed on their hearts!

Blessings and Peace,

Thought for the day:
Psalm 34:18
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit

Can’t forget the coaches:
