A friend of mine named Dexton Shores who works with Buckner (a significant Baptist ministry focused on children and families) posted the following information on how a simple click on a website could make a real difference for some kids in the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas. Let me encourage you to read his post offered below and then vote to help build the baseball field. Grace and Peace, Tom
You can make a difference in the lives of at-risk children living in one of the poorest communities in the U.S. and help them get a new little league field by simply taking a minute to cast your vote! If we can get another 2,000 votes by May 31st, they have a chance! http://www.frostedflakes.com/PLANT-A-SEED/FIELD/76708/FIELD.ASPXBuckner, in collaboration with the CBF Rural Poverty Initiatives and a Georgia church had a baseball clinic and has committed to do community ministry/development projects in one of the poorest communities in the U.S. located on the Texas/Mexico border in Presidio, Texas. Presidio suffered a lot of damage from flooding last year and the children of the community need a new little league field. Kellogg's is paying to rebuild 30 ball fields in the United States and the Presidio Little League Field has made the 100 semi-finalist. The top 30 vote getters of these 100 will get a new ball field provided by Kellogg's. We only have until May 31 to vote.
