"And whoso receiveth you, there I will be also, for I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you, to bear you up." D&C 84:88

Fixing the Basketball Backboard and a Game with the Elders

Today we inspected the Elders’ Flats.  There were a couple of very clean flats and one that needed some more work.  We will follow-up on that one after the transfers are completed. 

Today our big project was to fix the basketball standard at the church as a service project and for the Elders P-day entertainment.   I went this morning and purchased the wood and then had the hardware company cut it to size.  The Elders brought their extension cords so we could reach with the drill out to the basketball standard.  The finished product looked fairly good.

We tested the backboard out with a rousing couple of games of basketball.  I can almost keep up with these young men if I mostly play next to the basket.  I did score my share of points and the Elders appreciated that an “old guy” can be a good teammate.  I may suffer for the 1 1/2 hour game tomorrow with a lot of sore muscles!
