LWC basketball women visit Galilean Home Ministries
In Casey County, Kentucky
By Jay R. Nicols
News from Lindsey Wilson College
LIBERTY, KY - The Lindsey Wilson women's basketball took time off practice at Biggers Sports Center to learn about the values of the Galilean Home Ministries on September 24, 2013.
"It was very humbling and rewarding experience," LWC assistant coach Steve Beck said. "Our girls were able to play volleyball with the kids. They did not want to leave as they were having a blast with all the children."
Scott Jones is the principal, basketball and volleyball coach at the Galilean Christian Academy and he gave the women's team a tour of the facilities.
The women's team was able to visit classrooms where they interacted with the students and talked to the teachers. They also visited with the people in the Blessing House and were able to play some volleyball with the students.
The Galilean Home Ministries was born from the love of Jerry and Sandy Tucker, who adopted a medical-needs baby boy in 1970 and 43 years later has seen 1,000 children and 700 newborns come through their doors. Galilean Home is now a 20-acre home to a number of children and young adults in need of care and education.
Galilean Christian Academy is a K-12 Christian school started in 1987 that provides education to its residents but also serves the community as they expanded it to become a boarding school. In 1991 Born Free was established to help raise and nurture newborns whose mothers were in prison, these newborns reside in Angel House. The Blessing House is at the core of what Galilean Home Ministries is all about, housing and assisting the severely handicapped.
"I first visited the Academy 15-20 years ago when it was just starting and to take the women to the school this year was just a great life experience," said head coach John Wethington. "It brings life into perspective when you visit with people who are living with severe handicaps and to be able to go and visit them and play some sports with the students is just a great experience." - Jay R.
