Lake Fork tournament Results: May 26, 2012
The FOM Lake Fork Division met at First Baptist Church in Quitman on Friday night. Everyone was served a lasagna dinner by Dee McIntyre and Roy and Betty Oney. Also upon arrival they were given door prizes provided by Macatack Lures. We had 5 teams for this weeks tournament.
After the dinner Mac McIntyre, division director, gave his testimony about change, about how God changed his heart after a tragic accident in the woods as a timber faller. He was severely injured by a tree hitting him in the head and causing him to be in the ICU with multiple broken bones including all his ribs off his spine. He used the scripture of Matthew 12:33-37.
After his testimony they concluded with drawings for prizes. They selected their launch order and Mac McIntyre gave the benediction.
We were blessed with good weather. It was a little breezy and overcast for some of the morning.
