Kids Turn Cans into BGMC CA$H

Recently, we were trying to think of a way to bring in some extra money for BGMC. At a church event, I noticed that soda can after soda can was being tossed into the trash. I decided then that we could recycle those cans and use the money for BGMC.

One girl in our church, Kaley, went to a 4-H convention in another state. While at the convention she noticed kids throwing away LOTS of soda cans. She said to one of the leaders that she wished she could take all those cans back home with her on the airplane. Kaley explained that we were having a can drive to raise missions money for BGMC.

The leader at the convention helped Kaley recycle all the cans. As a result, Kaley came home with money for BGMC from sodas consumed in another state! Two other kids in our church, Sierra and Boomer, asked permission to collect soda cans at their school. We bought a large garbage can, and they emptied it when it became full. Imagine, a public school supporting missions!

Another girl at church, Brittany, gave her birthday money to support our BGMC program. I know that this touches the heart of God.

Jesus told us to "go into all the world," and the kids at our church, Hope Assembly in Fayetteville, Tennessee, are doing just that in their giving to BGMC. May God bless all of our missionaries!
