“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:20, KJV

That Bible verse is where Boaz missionary Kim Pate found her mission at In the Midst Ministries Honduras.

Pate will be holding fundraising events, like a dodgeball tournament at the Boaz Recreation Center, to raise money for In the Midst Ministries Honduras. The group’s website stated that In the Midst Ministries Honduras was established with the goal of evangelizing and discipling the people of Honduras by living life in the midst of them.

“We seek to build firm, lasting relationships by being present and demonstrating the love of the Father from the most extraordinary to the most mundane moments of everyday life that we all face,” Pate said. “While we can’t be everywhere at all times, our prayer is that we will always be a living example of the ever-present love of the Lord in our lives.”

Pate said the dodgeball tournament at the Boaz Recreation Center would be Saturday, March 14. The tournament starts at 8 a.m., and she said the details of the tournament are as follows:

• 8-person teams

• $25 per player

• Ages 12+ younger players are welcomed based on parental/team discretion, understanding that they will be playing with and against adults.

• Double elimination

• Free admission to tournament

• Donations accepted

• Concessions available

• Trophies given to first and second place teams

The Boaz Recreation Center is not accepting or handing out any registration forms or taking any money for the teams, she said.

Please contact Rachael Alexander by email at rachael@mortgageright.com or call 256-384-5848 for a registration form and payment arrangements.

“All teams need to be registered by Friday, March 13, by 3 p.m. so we can get everything organized,” Alexander said.

Additionally, Alexander said the group would also be selling T-shirts as a fundraiser. Shirts are $22 each, and she said the shirts must be paid for in advance.

“They come in three colors — green, blue and mauve — and sized extra-small to XXX-L,” Alexander said. “We will be taking T-shirt orders at the dodgeball tournament. Anyone that would like to purchase a T-shirt that may not be going to the dodgeball tournament can also contact me

“We have to have 25 before we can place the order, and once the order has been turned in it usually takes 10 to 14 days for the printer to get the order completed,” she said.
