The Boys Club staff extends its sincere sympathy to friends and families who have recently lost loved ones.  Along with our community losses, we also suffer the losses of our brothers and sisters in Oklahoma who lost their homes, their belongings, their children, family members and pets. Please pray for all of these people, near and far, and believe in your heart that God will provide for the comfort and needs of His children.
