#PRAY127 10.05.20

Today’s #PRAY127 request will be a quick one. Typically we hold our annual Fall Football Fling Thing fundraiser in November at a restaurant with lots of TV’s and great finger food in a casual, come-as-you go atmosphere. However, with COVID, we want to make sure we’re being safe while at the same time not allowing COVID to undermine our need to fund the fight for the fatherless.

That’s why I’m asking you to pray with us starting today. Two months from now we’ll have our 4th Annual Fall Football Fling Thing in the Tampa Bay area, December 5th, and we’re going to be holding it in several smaller venues across the area. The idea is to have host homes with smaller numbers so as to minimize potential exposure to COVID-10.

Not only that, but we’ll also have a few other locations around the nation where host homes will gather. We’ll still have the Big Board and some great prizes to giveaway, and we’ll be going LIVE at a broadcasting location in the Bay area as we check in with our host homes around the country.

It’s going to be different, something we haven’t done before, and it’s always a little nerve- wracking. So thank you for praying with us. Specially, please pray:

  • That we can logistically put all the pieces together.
  • That we can communicate the need effectively.
  • That folks will be inspired and give financially to the work of the Man Up ministry.

One praise to report – we already have our food sponsor! (Thank you United Health Care!)

And thank YOU for praying – this may not seem like a big ask, but I can’t tell you how thankful I am for your commitment to take this before the Lord.
