Rainbows Hop for BGMC

Six little Rainbows from Mayo First Assembly of God in Mayo, Florida have raised over $1,100 for BGMC. WOW!

Mayo First Assembly of God encourages children to become missions minded. Cathy Baldwin is the BGMC Coordinator, and she encourages the children and adults to make missions pledges and to fill up their Buddy Barrels. Baldwin encouraged everyone, from children to adults, to do what they could to support the annual BGMC fundraiser.

Vickie Ducksworth, who is the Rainbows teacher, came up with the idea of a "Hop-a-thon" for her Rainbow class. Rainbows is a part of the Wednesday night Missionettes program. Rainbows is for boys and girls ages 3-5. Lots of excitement grew among the six Rainbows in the class. Naturally, the excitement of the children ignited the adults to get involved in this project. Family and friends began to help these six little Rainbows raise money for BGMC.

Soon, the entire community of Mayo heard about what these Rainbows were doing, and they got involved and began contributing to their cause. Many businesses in Mayo pledged the Rainbows for their hopping. The entire congregation was on hand for the big "Hop-a-Thon" on August 22nd. The Rainbows lined up across the front of the sanctuary and began to hop for missions. While the music played, the six Rainbows hopped and hopped, some of them more than 200 times. When they finished hopping, they had raised over $1,100 for missions and BGMC!

"The wonderful thing is that all who contributed, whatever the amount, have helped these six Rainbows learn about giving, a lesson that I'm sure they will never forget," said Vickie Ducksworth.

Susan Hutchins is the Missionettes Coordinator and the Women's Ministries Coordinator for Mayo First Assembly of God. Donald Hurst is the pastor of Mayo First Assembly of God. "Our church has a big heart for missions," said Pastor Hurst. "We will go over $2,000 this year for BGMC." This is incredible for a church with a Sunday morning attendance of 75.

The six Rainbows who participated in the "Hop-a-thon" were: Dalton Ducksworth, Jenna Hurst, Jacob Hutchins, Samantha Lawson, Kali Lancaster, and Kayne Hurst.
