Free Throws for Souls.....

Today is a super big day.....

It is "Free Throws for Souls" day, and our son-in-law (Tom) will be shooting free throws for 24 hours.




Tom's talent for shooting free throws is phenomenal, and he is using this talent to serve the Lord.  

Money raised will go to "Gods Open Hands".....a food pantry that feeds over a thousand people per month.

From this event, (3) $1,000 dollar scholarships will be awarded to graduating seniors, to go toward their education. 

Other money will be given to "Project Transformation".....an event where local youth groups come together to help local residents in need of wheel chair ramps and yard clean ups. 

While Tom spends the next 24 hours shooting free throws....others in the community will gather to support him.   Teams have signed up to rebound balls and to be there....simply to cheer Tom on.

I have posted a link to a "live feed" where you can watch Tom during the next 23 hours.

Please be in prayer for Tom today!

Go Tom! What a great thing to do, and I can't imagine how anyone could keep on for that amount of time. I wouldn't be able to raise my arms after just half an hour! Thanks for sharing this, Shug, and I hope he raises lots of money for a good cause.

What a wonderful gift to the community and service to the Lord. I wish him well. I can't imagine trying to do that stunt!

I remember this from years past! I hope he gets breaks to rest, eat, go to the bathroom? This must be very hard, he is so sweet to do it.

That is just so cool. I hope they raise a lot of money.

One year we had our Junior High kids do a Rocking Chair Marathon, and they had to rock for 24 hours and we had sponsors that paid for every hour they rocked.
