Last Chance to Win Rifle and Help us Get our boys home

Christy and I traveled to Ghana in September, and on September 18 we were granted the adoption of two new sons: James Koby McCosh, and Josiah Gerrad McCosh. Praise the Lord!

Now we are trying to get misspellings corrected on our court decree so we can file the paperwork with USCIS to get approval for visas to bring Koby and Si home!

That means airfare for two to Ghana and for four back home. So we are still in need of raising some funds.

The drawing for the raffle of the antique Russian sniper rifle will be next Friday, the 19th. The winner will be contacted and announced right after the drawing. Get your chance while time remains!


We were blessed by the generous donation from a church member with this antique rifle toward our adoption. The gun is a Russian M91 7.62x54R. It is the original design of the Mosin Nagant. Based on my research, I believe this gun to be a 1924 Tula Dragoon. The estimated value could be up to $500.

This is an older version of the Mosin Nagant 91/30 that was used as a Russian Sniper Rifle featured in the Jude Law movie “Enemy at the Gates.”
You can view more pics of the gun on my facebook photos.

You may buy tickets by requesting in person, through paypal on our blog, or simply by messaging and mailing money.
