Show 816 – Second Chance Ministries

For a lot of children, learning to fish or hunt with Dad is a right of passage. For children who don’t have a father figure in their lives — whatever the reason may be — there’s Second Chance Ministries, created by Boyd Deal of Ariton. The ministry’s hunting and fishing trips are funded through sales of the book, “My Struggle, His Glory,” which was also compiled by Deal.
