Over this past weekend our Louisiana Chapter held its annual squirrel hunt.  It was a great weekend for a program.  We were geared up and ready for what God is going to do through these programs and mentors, in the lives of these young men from single parent and fatherless homes.  Friday night we kicked everything off with an overnight at Camp TIN.  We had 10 young men from single parent homes join us for this program.  We had some delicious taco soup prepared and served by Taylor Rivers.  After dinner we settled in around the camp fire for a little man time, and shared what God had been doing in our live sense we were last together.  Program Director Michael Rivers share about prayer and being in God’s will.  Afterwards we hit the bed to be ready for an early morning.


Saturday morning we woke up early for breakfast and hit the road heading to the woods.  Soon after everyone getting settled, we began to get reports of squirrels being shot.  We had three of the groups get some squirrels, with Blake Roy and Lucas Laborde getting their very first squirrel.  It was a great morning in the woods spending time and building relationships with our small groups of mentors and boys.  After the hunt we enjoyed an awesome lunch. It was hot dogs and chili prepared by Amie Wood, using the deer meat from Victor Pounds’ deer that he harvested at our November deer hunt.  It was great!  Following lunch, we were joined by Hebron Baptist Church’s Youth Pastor, Christopher Blanton, who brought a message from God’s word about “Finding our identity in Christ”. It really challenged us.  We  then finished off the day with a little bean bag toss before heading home. We pray that all walked away a little closer to God and that He was glorified through this program.

Continue to lift up these programs and young men as we hold these programs throughout the year.  We pray that above all else He is glorified and these young men grow in their walk.  You can check out all the pictures from the weekend by using the link below.
