DECATUR, Ill. (WAND) -- "I will provide."
Coach Calvin Carson didn't have a lot of money (he's a landscaper by day) but he did have Scripture.
"Just give it to Him and that's what I do," he said.
He noticed that Decatur had a problem: a large group of kids who were cut from their school teams, had disciplinary issues and perhaps academic issues to boot. His solution? Give them a place where they belong. That's when he started the Big Kings basketball team.
In following the nudge to act, Carson teaches us that you don't need a million dollars to change lives. You just need faith.
