Well, Christen and her team made it to the final 4! Her team was one of the top four teams out of 64 teams in her bracket. Unfortunately, they did not win their semi-finals, but she can come home knowing she accomplished something great!!
They were on a winning streak! Let me tell you! In one game against a Swedish team, Christen's team won 6-0. As a sign of respect, the Swedish team gave their club flag to Christen's team. Christen's coach turned around and then presented her with the club flag. It's a huge honor for your coach to do that!! It's like being named MVP!
I'm so happy for her, but the kid is not a good loser. She's mad and so far has not talked to us about the last game. She sent me a message and when Jon called her, she told him she wasn't ready to talk about it. I just want to give her a big ol' hug and tell her everything is going to be ok.
I am so thankful for her to have this opportunity and to make it as far as she did! We serve a mighty and awesome God and I praise Him for giving her the ability to compete! I pray that the rest of her trip is enjoyable and that she comes home safely.
Thank you to everyone who has and continues to pray for her!
She's in the light blue GK jersey:
