Dr. Bob Meets with Pinellas Gideons

The local area camps of the Gideon’s International met for a “Birthday Party for Jesus breakfast at the St. Petersburg Yacht Club Saturday morning, December 2. 2017.

About thirty-five Gideons, Gideons Auxiliary and guests met in a year-end effort to raise money for the distribution of Bibles overseas.

“The Gideons International is an Association of Christian business and professional men and their wives dedicated to telling people about Jesus through sharing personally and by providing Bibles and New Testaments,” according to the Gideons website.

The Gideons distribute Bibles in 201 countries. Up to 2015 they had distributed two billion Bibles world-wide and are now working on their third billion.

Dr. Bob is a member of the North Pinellas camp, which is an area covering north of Drew Street in Clearwater to south of Curlew in Palm Harbor. There are five camps in the county.

An extra treat, the St. Petersburg Christmas parade went by just as the breakfast was ending.
