A Special Thank You For Eternity

he Bible says that there are not enough books in the whole world to contain the accounts of all that Jesus did because of how much He did. It is kind of like that when we think of thanking all those who have given sacrificially to make the Truth and the Outdoors Expo possible. There are literally hundreds of individuals, churches, businesses and other groups that have given time, talents and monetary donations to produce this great event. So please understand why we can not list them all in this program. If we did try to do so, there would not be enough room to list everyone and we would surely end up leaving out some who have given of themselves and their businesses. We do want to dedicate this space to recognize and to thank every person, group or business, as best as we can, for every contribution, no matter how large or small. It took such generous participation by

each and every one to make this event possible. It has been amazing to see how God has brought all the different folks to work together for this common goal. The Bible says that even giving a cup of water in Jesus’ name will not go unnoticed by our Father in heaven, and such will be rewarded both in this life and in the life to come, when our life is over here on earth. Truly, only in eternity will any of us know the full results and impact of the contributions we have given to this effort. The lives that will be touched through this effort will in turn touch many others, who will then touch many others. So only God knows truly just how great your reward in heaven will ultimately be. God is great and loving and your reward from Him will surely be generous and eternal. God bless you for your service and generosity.

Welcome from the Franklin Baptist Association It is a great pleasure and honor for me to welcome you to our association’s third “Truth” and the Outdoors Expo. We have planned and prepared this school campus and the related exhibits and seminars with you in mind, hoping that your visit here would be enjoyable and enriching. We wanted this expo to be unique from the many others that you may attend. From the very beginning it has been the vision of our association leaders and the “Truth” and the Outdoors Team to provide an affordable and richly rewarding experience for the entire family where each visitor could also have the opportunity to be “exposed” to the “Great Truth” behind the outdoors. The Bible, and even nature itself, plainly teaches us that there is a Creator of our wonderful outdoor world

and of all who live within it. In fact He created our world for our enjoyment and His glory. That Creator is Jesus Christ. The Bible tells us that Jesus is the “Truth” behind the Outdoors and that He desires every person in the world He created to personally know His love and to enjoy His fellowship here on earth. He also desires for us to live forever with Him in the heaven that He also created. Along with enjoying all the outdoors exhibits and programs, please take advantage of the many resources to know Jesus that we have made available today in your handouts and in our seminars. If we can help you to know Him, or know and love Him better, just ask one of our Team Members wearing the orange shirts . ( May God bless your time with us at our expo, and your life forever! Here to Serve You, Jim Plymale Director, Franklin Baptist Association

Brian Utecht to talk white tail deer hunting

Brian Utecht, national director for the minisrry of Cross Trail Outfitters, will speak at Truth & the Outdoors on many aspects of hunting whitetail deer in Missouri. Brian is a Midwest boy through-andthrough. He was born and raised in Nebraska and played as a linebacker for Missouri Western University in St. Joseph. He then joined up with the U.S. Coast Guard and served as a rescue swimmer and weapons officer, and at the time was the most highly decorated rescue swimmer in Coast Guard history. His service to our country took him across our great

Cross Trail Outfitters is a year-round youth hunting and fishing club with summer camps and weekend outings that teaches upon three cornerstones: Building men, preserving our hunting

and fishing heritage, and sharing our

Christian faith. God has prepared Brian for this full-time missionary position through years of experience in the great outdoors from trapping in the creeks of Nebraska as a youth to brown bear hunting in Alaska as a young adult to being a professional hunting guide in Texas and top 100 B.A.S.S. Fisherman across the United States. Brian’s passion for sharing his years of experience and skills in the outdoors can be attributed to the hunting and fishing heritage passed down from his grandpa and father who also had a love for the outdoors.

Brothers to share story featured in Field & Stream

Mark and Dan Witt, the brothers whose story of losing their father in a hunting accident was told in the December 2011/January 2012 Field & Stream article, “Following Our Father,” will speak on their outdoor experiences and Dan Witt Christian faith at the Truth & the Outdoors Wildlife Expo. During Mark’s first deer hunt at the age of 12, his father was tragically killed, an event that would change and impact each family member’s life forever. In spite of the their father’s loss, Mark and Dan have continued to hunt and grow in their love for the outdoors. Mark and Dan have spoken at numerous wild game events in the U.S. and Canada. They have produced a gospel tract “Mistaken Identity” which

tells about the hunting accident and also points the reader to Christ.

“Not everything starts from good beginnings but God has a way of making things work out.” says Pond Pro Tim Shannon. After Shannon’s father died unexpectedly in 2004, he began a quest for a 10-lb. bass to honor the passing of the man who introduced him to the sport. That quest, said Shannon, “ultimately cost me my job, my wife, a few lifelong fishing buddies and nearly my own life.” After four and a half years of chasing “The One,” Shannon came to the realization he was throwing his life away, so he Pond Pro Tim Shannon developed his ended his quest. expertise on a quest for a 10-lb. bass to He also realized that from honor his late father. years of fishing practice and studying how-to videos that he Hear Tim Shannon speak at had become an expert at small 5:15 p.m. Friday and 8:15 p.m. waters fishing.

and launched a new concept for fishing called The Pond Pro on Facebook. Shannon started posting tips and how-to’s on the page about how to catch fish in your own backyard and instantly gained attention “I was gaining 130 likes a month but it wasn’t good enough. I knew if I really wanted to get this concept out there I had to do two things: focus on fishing and come up with a gimmick or way to put a stamp on what Pond Pro is all about.” He sold all his hunting gear to get the needed money to buy a jersey with “Pond Pro” on the back and a GoPro camera to post videos instead of articles. His site gained serious momentum and “Here I am,” says Shannon. “I wanted people to know that even the BASS, FLW and LBAA pros started somewhere just like them, on a pond bank.”

BowLife Pop Up Tournament Rules

• Pre-register online at www. • First place prize: $500 (Additional places and prizes will be announced and awarded at the Expo) • Entry Fee: $40 • Entry fee gives you one qualifying round and two practice rounds • Requalifying rounds $10 • Practice rounds $5 TOURNAMENT RULES & FORMAT BowLife HSC is a computer operated 3D archery range. We use life-like 3D animal targets that will be moving. The targets are programmed to pop up for a length of time then go down. There will also be a runner. This target will move from one side of the range to the other. OUTLINE The shooter will need five arrows to complete a round. During a round, five targets will appear at random. The shooter must look and find the target and make a shot before the target goes away, and the next appears. After the five shots, the targets in that round will all pop up to be scored.

SCORING The scoring will be 12,10,8 and 5. The center ring will score a 12, the circle inside the vital area will score a 10, the larger oval will score an 8, and anywhere outside of the 8 ring will score a 5. Ties will be broken by the number of 12s then the number of 10s. Arrows must be touching the line of the rings to gain the higher score. In the case of the arrow being so close to the line making it hard to determine, the higher score will be given to the shooter. ARROWS THAT HIT A TARGET AFTER GOING THROUGH A FRONT BLOCKER WILL SCORE A ZERO. All scoring will be done by BowLife Staff. PRACTICE/ FUN ROUND The practice and fun rounds will be five arrows, five targets, and will be second to qualifying/ requalifying rounds. QUALIFYING ROUND The qualifying/requalifying round will consist of a 10-target score (two rounds of five). The top number of shooters will be placed on the shoot-off board. This number will depend on the entries for the event. As higher scores are made throughout the

qualifying round, names will be replaced. It is up to the shooter to make sure they remain on the shoot-off board by requalifying if need be. The qualifying/ requalifying round will be held up to a given time on the last day of the event. That time will be determined at the event and posted at the BowLife Booth. Additional qualifying rounds will be available. THE SHOOT-OFF At the time of the shoot-off, the shooters must be present. If not, the shooter will be replaced by the next highest scorer. The shoot-off will be a headto-head round. (Example: 16 shooters in the shootoff, #1 will shoot against #16, #2: vs. #15 and so on). The high scorer will advance to round 2. This will be the format down to the final two shooters. RULES Bows: 70 lbs. maximum. Shooters must be able to control their bow. Range finders will not be allowed on stand. BowLife staff may enforce rules additional rules if necessary. YARDAGE Yardage for each target will be between 40y max and 15y min.

Travis Loewen will bring 2,200 lb. longhorn Branson entertainerTravis Loewen will be performing with his longhorn steer, Jack, and his horse, Top Cat, as he presents his message on the relationship of the animal and trainer at Truth & the Outdoors. You will also be entertained with trick roping, rope tricks, cowboy poetry and storytelling.

If you are a hunter, think of the time and energy invested into the hunt for that one moment of truth when you are focused in on your quarry and it is time to make the shot. It all comes down to that moment. Have you prepared and stayed on track? Is your rifle sighted in? Are you breathing properly? Are you squeezing the trigger slowly? Such is our preparation in life for God’s judgment. If we don't keep His commands and treasure them within us, we will be accountable for a missed shot.

Hear Travis Loewen speak 6:30 p.m. Friday, 5 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday on the Junior High Gym Stage. See show schedule for prizes Raised on a ranch in Meade, Kan,, Travis grew up to become the emcee for the famed Dixie Stampede in Branson and has worked in other shows around that community. He performed in the Shepherd of the Hills drama for five seasons, was the chuckwagon cook for the Sons of the Pioneers dinner show and participated in Silver Dollar City’s Salute to the Great American Cowboy. He will amaze you at his seminars as he

shares techniques that he uses to build relationships and train his animals. After Travis’s seminar Saturday, those who are present will be entered

into an immediate drawing to win a custom made maple table from Meramec Woodworks worth over $2,000.
