On behalf of the IADC Houston Chapter, we are excited to announce the Tenth
Annual IADC Houston Chapter Oilfield Charity Shoot. We are changing the venue this year as
the shoot will be held at Westside Sporting Grounds March 27, 2020.
Now is the time to start planning to participate in this exciting event.
This year event will support the IADC Houston Chapter Scholarship Program,
Home Run Hitters International, Inc. and the Oilfield Christian Fellowship
(OCF), three outstanding organizations.
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 Bile ministry, Prayer Breakfasts, a Bible
APP and Bible Studies. Oil workers have carried over 365,000 Bibles in 52
languages to 67 countries around the world. Of those, over 350,000 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
Home Run Hitters International, Inc. (HRH) is a nonprofit, tax-exempt
organization dedicated to young individuals with limited communication skills
in addition to other disabilities. HRH provides opportunities for these
individuals to be esteemed and celebrated all while interacting with their
surroundings and other individuals. HRH achieves this by hosting four
programs, each designed to offer unique experiences within stimulating and
supportive environments. HRH believes everyone has the opportunity to
succeed, to compete, to make friends, and to receive words of praise.
Because of your generous support, the IADC Houston Chapter was able to
donate a total of $23,827 last year, bringing our total lifetime contributions
to $342,097. 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. We hope you will join our efforts again this year and
take pride in helping us support our scholarship recipients and these three worthy

OCF's devotional book, Making the Trip With God on Route 316; Directions to the City of Eternal Life 4th Edition is Now AVAILABLE . Get your orders in now.
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.
