a beautiful day.– Well, Hope Outdoors
is an outdoor ministry.We take people
with special needshunting, fishing,
different things.And it was kind of a
creation of my father-in-lawand another group of
men in Chatom, Alabama.That was in 2005.He had a hunting camp thereand kinda had the
vision to take somebodyand kinda invest in them.And somebody who doesn’t get
out in the outdoors very often.We’re ready.– And about a year and a
1/2 ago, two years ago,I was approached, living
down on the coast,I was approached to do
a gulf coast chapterthat focused on fishing.And I’m like, “Wow, you
know, that’s pretty neat.”So after talking with my wife,we decided to do it.And we needed to
partner with a church.And I have a friends
that goes to churchhere at Immanuel Baptist Church.And they were onboard
from the beginning.And they really embraced
us and made this event,particular event their own
outreach ministry for the year.– I’m from Canton, Mississippi,this is my first time out here
fishing with Hope Outdoors.And hopefully, I’m gonna
bring home the prize.– Watch your toes, gentlemen.– And you can just come
