A couple of weeks ago, we were contacted by a producer from Tru Television, the producer that produces the show Top 20 Most Shocking and they had seen a video we had done several years ago that was on the internet when my two oldest sons were teenagers and they played a practical joke on me and so the producer wanted to know if they could get permission to use that video on a show coming up in October they were calling "Top 20 Most Shocking Practical Jokes" and they wanted to title it "Pastor Pranked" and they were willing to pay $1,000 for the rights to the church and so we said yes. I think it is the first time Tru Television has ever given $1,000 to missions and so it will be airing next month and I'm sure it is going to change a lot of lives. In fact, I want to show you that prank that they played on me and really it was my two oldest sons and one of the student pastors who took me to play Frisbee golf and really what sets it up is for the several weeks before that my son, Josh, and one of his friends had been going to the ponds at the Frisbee golf course in the middle of the winter, these muddy, filthy ponds and they would go into the ponds and they would feel around the muddy bottom with their feet and they would find Frisbees. They were noodling for Frisbees, hillbilly hand fishing for Frisbees and they would get maybe 10 or 12 Frisbees each time they would go in and I just kept telling them guys, don't do that. I mean that's horrible. I mean you're going to catch colds in the middle of winter and then those ponds are filthy. Who knows what's in there? I mean, there are snakes. Who knows what kind of amoebas and disease live in there and I just kept telling them don't do that.
