Our Truth in Nature Louisiana Chapter had a great May program. The program was a 3D Archery Shoot and there was a good group of boys and mentors attending. It was an overnight program that kicked off on Friday night with a great dinner of squirrel jambalaya made from the squirrels harvested at the February Squirrel Hunt that the boys participated in. It was a good meal as always prepared by Gwen Harriel. After dinner we got to check out the 3D targets and practice range where we would be shooting on Saturday. The boys got excited to see the challenging 3D stations with deer, turkey, and hog targets. Louisiana Program Director, Michael Rivers, use an empty pizza box to show the boys that it’s not what’s on the outside that gives value to you, but what’s on the inside. We then settled in to a little man time around the camp fire afterwards to share in what God has been doing in our life since the last program. It was a great discussion both mentors and boys shared. After a little free time hanging out we hit the bunk house and turned in for the night.
Saturday morning we got started off with some breakfast and then hit the practice range to get our sights dialed in. Each young man took to the range and proved themselves a good shot. They continued to practice for a while to gain confidence and show patience as they learned placement and how to line up and make a solid shot. After that time was finished the boys had the opportunity to move on over to the more difficult 3D stations. One station at a time each boy was able to gain experience and confidence shooting at the 3D deer, turkey, and hog targets. All in all their skills in archery and confidence increased during this program. After the time out in the archery practice range and course we got a good lunch and settled in to hear Ronnie Alpha give some of his testimony and challenge the young men on their walk with Christ. After wrapping up in prayer we dismissed.
This program was another great time in God’s Creation spending time with these young men from single parent homes building relationships, creating bonds, and sharing in God’s Word with each of them. Please continue to lift this ministry and organization as a whole up for God to continue to lead and direct our leaders, mentors, and reach our boys for His Kingdom through these programs.
