IADC Oilfield Charity Shoot Scheduled for March 8, 2019

On behalf of the IADC Houston Chapter, I am excited to announce the Ninth Annual IADC Houston Chapter Oilfield Charity Shoot. This year’s shoot will be held March 8, 2019 at American Shooting Centers. Now is the time to start planning to participate in this exciting event.

This year, the proceeds from the Oilfield Charity Shoot will help fund the IADC Houston Chapter Scholarship Program, as well as the Oilfield Christian Fellowship (OCF), two outstanding organizations that directly benefit the oilfield, its workers and their families.

The Oilfield Christian Fellowship began in May 1991 as an outlet for Christians in the oilfield to meet each other. The OCF has evolved into many more forms of outreach, including a Bible ministry, Prayer Breakfasts, a Bible APP and Bible Studies. Oil workers have carried over 300,000 Bibles in 52 languages to 67 countries around the world. Of those, over 250,000 are custom Oil Patch Bibles written in English, Spanish, Chinese and Portuguese. The long-term goal is to reproduce this unique Bible, God’s Word for the Oil Patch, Fuel for the Soul into every language in the world where there is an oil and gas presence.

Because of your generous support, the IADC Houston Chapter was able to donate a total of $33,500 last year, bringing our total lifetime contributions to $318,250. I hope you will join our efforts again, as we expect this year’s event to build on our past success.

As we did in previous years, each team will be eligible to win one pistol per team (two pistols per team for Platinum sponsors) as door prizes. We believe it is important to give back to participants in addition to the charities.

I hope you will join our efforts again this year and take pride in helping us support our scholarship recipients and these two worthy organizations.

Sincerely,

Matt Eve
Chairman

Back Jacket;if you only remember hearing a single verse in the Bible, itis Probably John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." However, it amazes me how many terrific 3:16 verses there are in the other books of the New Testament. in fact, these verses tell the whole gospel story and are enough to show us the way to Heaven.Like the little lights that mark the path down the aisle of an airplane, or those that shine on the darkened stairs in a movie theater, this daily devotional book uses these verses to show you how to start your walk with God, and enables you to stay on the road that leads to Heaven. This 40 day journey, complete model prayers and a daily Bible study, will answer the great questions of life; Where will I spend eternity?" and "How do I get there?"

Order yours today.Suggested donation for a copy is $2.00. Larger orders will receive a substantial discount.
