STRASBOURG Jarran Reed Seahawks Jersey , July 18 (Xinhua) -- Thousands of teenage scouts and guides had to be evacuated from a camp in Strasbourg in the early hours of Saturday morning after it was hit by a violent thunderstorm.

Some 15,000 scouts aged 14-17 and from 29 countries, had assembled in the French city for a jamboree called 'You're Up'. But at 1.40 a.m. the thunderstorm and strong winds swept through the camp ripping up tents and forcing its evacuation. The scouts were housed in a nearby concert and sports venue for the night.

Emergency services reported 35 people were injured, some suffering "sprains Germain Ifedi Seahawks Jersey , fractures and dislocations". Parents were notified first thing Saturday morning that their children were all safely accounted for.

This morning many of the scouts had returned to the camp to help rebuild tents and repair damaged equipment.

The scouts had mostly come from other European countries, but some had travelled from as far as Canada to join the jamboree organised by the French Scout and Guide association.

By lunchtime, true to the motto of the global scout movement - 'Be Prepared' - the camp had been substantially rebuilt drawing admiration from political leaders.

On Twitter, former French Prime Minister Alain Juppe said: "After the storm Tedric Thompson Seahawks Jersey , the youngsters have already been rebuilding their camp, smiling and singing even in such difficult circumstances. Bravo!"

The French association hosted the jamboree to bring together scouts and guides from different nationalities and faiths. Groups representing various Christian faiths, Buddhists, Muslims and Jews were all represented.

Activities scheduled for Saturday were cancelled to allow the scouts to rest after their ordeal Amara Darboh Seahawks Jersey , but will resume Sunday and continue until the event closes on Thursday July 23.

Following this week's meeting some of the scouts are due to set off for Japan which is hosting the annual World Jamboree in Yamaguchi.

Our church has an organized basketball program managed and coached by Doug White (not to be confused by our pastor who also has the same name). Recently, I asked Doug why he was so passionate about the sport of basketball, and what does basketball have to do with Christianity. I thought his philosophy may be helpful to others who desire to build a church sports program. He expounded that organized basketball can be a great Christian training ground. Doug believed it starts with the right goal in mind: building up believers for their Christian walk. Coach White adheres to the following eight principles:

1. The program leader and coaches must remember the program goal in every activity they undertake. The core to a successful basketball program is conditioning and fundamentals. Those are two things most kids will like the least because they?re infected by television sports; where the focus is on the individual player to look as good as possible. By focusing on conditioning and fundamentals, coaches can begin to wean their kids off of the glory-seeking mentality inherent in today?s professional sports and develop a TEAM.

2. Every practice must begin and end with a prayer and those prayers should be led by players as soon as possible. The last 15 minutes of every practice should be a Bible study lesson where the players MUST bring a lesson or verse and be prepared to give its meaning and an application to basketball or their daily lives. Every player is required to have their Bible in hand and a lesson written down inside.

3. The Bible study lesson will be one of the most emotionally challenging tasks the players will face. Not only do they have to read and understand Nazair Jones Seahawks Jersey , but they also have to speak in front of their peers. To demonstrate how simple the task really is, Coach White will lead the first 2 or 3 by turning to a chapter in Proverbs. Proverbs is an easy book to use because it?s built around life lessons. The challenges faced on the court boil down to challenges in life: anger management, cooperation, physical effort Delano Hill Seahawks Jersey , pain, disappointment, and joy. The requirement to have a lesson on a piece of paper can be answered simply by writing a Proverb on a piece of paper with the point the player is trying to make. Those without a Bible or lesson earn a martyr (what the secular world calls a ?suicide?) for each infraction. The penalized player will run while we prepare the lesson.

4. Coaches need to remind their players that all the heavy conditioning will be lifelong examples the players can use when basketball becomes just a fond memory. Working hard and hammering their bodies into fit vessels will make their brains more alert and able to accomplish seemingly impossible physical tasks for years into the future. And if some of the players actually choose to become missionaries, their physical training will form a great basis to endure the hardships in third world countries.

5. To successfully reach the primary goal of improving our Christian walk Shaquill Griffin Seahawks Jersey , basketball games become framed in the context of physical contests and opportunities to demonstrate a Christ-like attitude. Christian players do NOT challenge or complain about a referee?s call. The Christian player appreciates the referee?s difficult position of managing chaos and understands the thankless job they?ve undertaken. Complaining about a call, rolling their eyes, or hot-dogging earns them an immediate spot on the bench where they can see the cost to their teammates of their absence.

6. The other team is not ?the enemy? but are brothers that challenge us. If the other team is secular, then we become a team of witnesses of how Jesus would behave and how He makes us different. The goal as a Christian team is put out an effort level Jesus would be pleased with Ethan Pocic Seahawks Jersey , and an attitude that makes fans and players both wonder how it can be in today?s world. As Christians playing basketball, we should be victorious wh.
