3rd Annual Free Throw For Souls!!

We are all so excited about an event taking place tomorrow......March 22, 2013!!

It's time for the 3rd annual......

FREE THROWS FOR SOULS!!



Many of you may recall my last year's post about this event....

Our son-in-love......Tom Booth will be shooting free throws for 24 straight hours!

It all starts in the morning and he will finish up Sat. morning around 8:00 A.M.


Last year, the event raised "right at $11,000," and he made 12,393 free throws out of 19,000 shots, or about 65 percent.      That was up from $6,000 raised the first year.

The money raised goes to GOD'S OPEN HANDS.....to feed the hungry ....AND to a missionary (John Williamson) who does work in the Ukraine.

Tom has a special gift of playing basketball and shooting free throws, and it is his desire to use these talents to further God's Kingdom..


Please be in prayer with us for Tom to have the endurance he needs to shoot for 24 hours straight.    

I can't wait to see what God is going to do this year!

hugs,
Shug

Gosh, I bet he is going to be awfully tired! But all for a good cause! I love your pretty look and the beautiful bucket of tulips on the left side.

Shooting free throws for 24 hours?! Holy moly. That is a long time and he WILL need prayers. Lord, please help Tom with this physically demanding ministry and let the money pour in for charity. What a wonderful thing, Shug! Report back and let us know. :)
