4 Kids + 8 Months = $1,100 for BGMC

You've heard about the boy whose lunch fed the 5,000. Have you heard about four California kids who teamed up to earn $1,100 for missions in eight months? Nicole, Morgan, Geno, and Lindsay of New Life Christian Center in Citrus Heights, California, each made a commitment to earn $5 per month to support several of this year's BGMC projects around the world. The four kids began their efforts by studying the BGMC book entitled "55 Ways to Earn Money for Missions." To earn their first $36, the kids began by selling some old baseball cards, washed the car, swept and mopped the garage floor, vacuumed the house, pulled weeds, emptied the trash, and worked around the yard. The kids then went to Costco and used their $36 to purchase three boxes of extra-large candy bars. They continued to buy and sell the candy in their neighborhood until they were able to give $1,100 to BGMC in just eight months. When asked what she would say if someone told her that it could not be done, eight-year-old Morgan laughed and said, smiling, "Yes, you can. I did it. Anyone can sell candy, clean, and help around the house!"

Each of the four kids admits that the task has not been easy. "We did a lot of walking. Sometimes my tummy hurt, but I kept on walking because I wanted to help the children in Burkina Faso's Christian schools," said 10-year-old Nicole. When the youngest member of the team was asked why she was willing to work so hard, little six-year-old Lindsay replied, "Because it is very fun to give money to other people, and God wants us to do it. God does not want any people to die without hearing about Him."
