Duncan Soccer Balls Huge Success

The generosity of Bruce Ovans of Duncan Minor Soccer left several boys or families with their eyes popping out. A dozen used balls donated by Duncan were handed out by Butch in San Antonio. One was given to the school and the others to individuals.

One day when we were giving out beds several of the poorest street “urchins” gathered to carry beds for a few coins. One old lady had no money at all and Butch asked the boys if any of them would help carry her bed at no cost. Only one offered his free help.  When we located this boy later with his friends Butch explained how it is good to help old people and presented him with the last ball.  The pictures tell the story.

Butch asks, " Who would like a soccer ball?"

Butch asks, ” Who would like a soccer ball?”

Explaining how this boy halped without asking for coins.

Surprised buy gets his ball.

I saw this fellow several times later. He carried the ball on his back under his shirt.
