Deacon uses ‘Gifted Hands’ to help boys

30giftedhands-400At The New Olivet Baptist Church, several boys, ages 10 to 18, recently viewed "Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story" and then answered questions and wrote an essay about the movie.

Several of the top scorers were rewarded with a trip to Union University in Jackson, Tenn. to hear Dr. Carson speak at a banquet on Oct. 22nd.

Deacon Herman Draine Jr. coordinated the effort for the youth.

"A lot of our kids are not taking advantage of their opportunities...(Dr. Carson) had to get in there and do the work. It's out there for you to get," said Draine. You just have to work hard and go get it. ...

"Everybody can't be Kobe Bryant or Michael Jordan ... but you can make yourself whatever you want to be intellectually. God has just put it on my heart...I just want to reach out and help the young boys today."

Draine said it's now a personal goal to help every boy around him grow up to be a successful man.

"Whatever you do for a living, do your best. Take care of your kids," said Draine. "We have enough failures in the world, enough deadbeats. ..."

Hi! I realize this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask.
Does running a well-establishe d blog like yours require a massive amount work?
I am completely new to running a blog but I do write in my journal everyday.
I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and
thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
Appreciate it!
