2012 Mud Bowl

We raised $350.00 for http://neverthirst4.com, during our annual Mud Bowl at Immanuel Baptist Church.  This is such a great organization.  When disasters like tornados or floods effect communities in the United States neverthirst brings clean drinking water and delivers it to the crews working to clean up and help with rescue.  Then neverthirst returns to check on their progress bringing more water and the good news about Jesus Christ to these areas.

Jacob Ricker is the director and has delivered water to Joplin, MO and Salyersville, KY after those tornados just to mention a couple.  When disaster strikes clean drinking water is usually one of the first things to go and one of the most needed things for rescue and clean up crews.

Click on this link if you would like to donate to this organization.  Just $5.00 will buy a case of bottled water.


Even though I am officially not in our youth program at church.  Our youth pastor invited me to be one of the photographers.  I always have fun taking pictures at events like this, because there is so much going on.



Nothing like dumping this much mud out of your boots!


Mud volleyball is way worse than beach volleyball.  Get ready to go for the ball and your feet don't move . . . cause you are STUCK IN THE MUD!


They buried the youth pastor, all except his face (so he could breathe).


Little Miss Raylee thought she might go to her daddy, but then she changed her mind and pulled her hand back when she touched the mud.  So funny!


After all the fun, there is cleaning up before going home.  Luckily, it's 92 degrees so no one really complained about the cold water.
