Agents for Christ

Texarkana Pathfinder Club Celebrates Busy Year
October 23, 2019

TEXARKANA, TEX. – The motto “NOT so Secret Agent for Christ” has covered a very wide variety of activities for 20 Texarkana Mustang Pathfinders and their nine staff members during the past year. They wandered in the wilderness with Moses while surviving the area camporee and honed-in on “walking on water” skills and “tree climbing” skills to see Jesus. They have solved riddles and read Bible verses to sharpen their skills to meet the challenges of each obstacle.

The energetic Mustangs and their leaders filled the year with many activities. Camporees, Bible bowls, honor festivals and field trips just come with the territory for the Mustangs. They also hosted a scientist who came and taught about creation in comparison to evolution.

Field trips included a visit to the Sanctuary Exhibit in Murfreesboro, Ark. A part of their community outreach was delivering Valentine’s Day cards to residents at an assisted living facility and at Christmas they performed plays and sang carols for residents at the Magnolia Assisted Living Facility in Texarkana. The Club also assisted the Women’s Ministry in packing purses with needed items for a women’s shelter.

The Texarkana Mustangs, Shreveport Tornados and DeQueen Spanish Pathfinder clubs spent time together working on a new honor to submit to the North American Division. They proposed the honor of “Disc Golf.”

The Mustang Pathfinders, led by Stacy Sowers, and the Texarkana Ponies Adventurers, led by Kyle Diaz, held their joint Investiture on June 1, 2019 (pictured below).
