#PRAY127 11.30.20

This is a take-your-pick kind of week as you pray for the ministry of Man Up and Go.

Coming off of a Thanksgiving where, despite the challenges of 2020, we have much for which to be thankful, we look towards the first week of December as we have three meaningful events scheduled.

  • Wednesday, December 2 is our Man Up 100 Tampa Bay quarterly gathering . Please pray that we might continue to recruit men to the cause of fighting for the fatherless. Currently we have 60 men enrolled for the current term. We have 21 foster families that we serve every single month, which means 70 kids are impacted. The more men we have to serve, the more families we can help.
  • Saturday, December 5 is our Man Up 100 Springfield (MO) quarterly gathering. Just like in Tampa, we pray for more men to enroll. We have 25 officially in the Springfield cohort, but we know there are more men who need to join the fight.
  • Saturday, December 5 is also the date for our annual Fall Football Fling Thing in the Tampa Bay area. Due to COVID, we’ve changed venues to Keystone Ranch, a 4-acre outdoor ranch with plenty of social distancing opportunities. We’ve also made this an online event, as we’ll be streaming live both on Facebook and YouTube.

This is our one big fundraiser of the year. 2020 has definitely been a hard one in terms of raising funds, so please pray with us that God’s people are moved to give. Our goal is $25,000. We have a $10,000 match, which means we need to raise $15,000 this week. Tomorrow is #givingTuesday and we’re opening up the Big Board, so folks can give all this week.

Thank you for praying – we’re believing God for a big week!
