    Top Churches in Masters Toolbox Giving

    As of August 1, 2019
    - Glad Tidings, Austin
    - Hewitt Community Church, Hewitt
    - Crossroads AG, Greenville
    - Harvest AG, Ft Worth
    - The Lighthouse, Dallas
    - Grace Community, Flower Mound

    Total giving in 2019, as of August 1, is $3,321.58.

    In 2018, North Texas churches gave a total of $10,468.78 to Masters Toolbox, which placed us third in the nation!

    Remember, the goal this year and next is to raise funds to help support Ignite Eurasia. One-third of the world’s kids live in just four countries: India, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka. Our support of this missions effort will result in thousands of kids and teens hearing the Gospel, new Royal Rangers curriculum in the Nepali language, and training for national leaders in these four countries so that they can more effectively mentor this generation of kids.

    For outposts that raise at least $500 toward this effort in 2019, everyone who helped raise the funds will receive one of the Ignite Eurasia patches. Donations need to be turned in using thee Ignite Eurasia Form so that this project receives the funds. 



NRA Ambassador Program

The NRA has made changes to their NRA Ambassador Program. The National Royal Rangers office just received the application window this afternoon. The NRA is accepting applications August 1 through September 30. This is a great opportunity for a young man. There could potentially be more than one Royal Ranger earn this honor, so please get this out to your outposts now so the boys can have the maximum amount of time to prepare their applications. Boys need to begin putting their applications together now so they will have everything completed before the end of September. We are getting a jump on things because this will be announced when the Sept 4 Rangers Now comes out with a full article about it. Thanks for your help with this. As of 2019, the NRA updated its requirements to open up participation in the program to be more all-encompassing of other youth programs and organizations. With this, applicants are now directly accepted through the NRA versus in the past where each partner organization picked its own ambassador individually. Anyone who is a high school sophomore, junior, or senior is welcome to apply with these new standards. More info can be found at https://youthambassadors.nra.org. The NRA is accepting applications August 1 through September 30.

After this, lets thank Him for our leaders in this great District and the boys he has given us to train. Lets petition the Lord for more leaders and boys to help us further His great Work! Lets pray for our camp and all things needed to help in our journey towards greatness in this wonderful ministry! Again, lets thank the Lord for all He has given us charge over and being our Champion, Savior, Provider, healer, and Friend!
