Love Does, love Did!

God is moving in the BASIC community. Because of your generosity we were able to send 400 World Vision Caregiver Kits to Zimbabwe. 400 kits equip 100 Caregiver for an entire year! It has been inspiring and heartwarming to see you get behind this project and join in with your enthusiasm and resources. Tabitha Tabor had this to share after receiving so many funds for kits after BASIC one night. "

He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. -Mark 16:15 We are called by God to go out, we are called to serve others and we are called to do all of this out of love. Right now, not all of us can go. . But Thursday at BASIC when we as a community pulled together to purchase 52 caregiver kits, we enabled someone else to go. As I stood there with the iPad taking donations I was in shock by the amount of love and generosity we showed as a community. Every single dollar given and every prayer that has been said has given caregivers in Zimbabwe the ability to go. We are changing peoples lives, we are helping others be the hands and feet of God.

If you haven't had the chance to give there is still time! You may give online here.

The Muscular Dystrophy Association is currently seeking volunteers for our 2014 Summer Camp! All of the campers are ages 6-17 and are matched up with a one-on-one volunteer for the week to assist with their needs (which can include transfers, assisting with acts of daily living, and just having fun). It provides hands on experience working with children and gives 140 hours of volunteer experience to add to their resume. The MDA Staff, Physicians and Nurses are there to provide medical training and there is always a group of volunteers there to help along the way. The only qualifications needed are: be age 16, enjoy working with kids, have an open heart for the week, be willing to learn and fill out the necessary documents apart of the application!

For many kids with a neuromuscular disease, June 22-27th, 2014 will be a week of memories, fun and developing life-long skills, this week is known to many of these children as "The Best Week of the Year." The Muscular Dystrophy Association has been building bridges and knocking down barriers for youngsters with neuromuscular disease by providing an unforgettable weeklong summer camp at no cost to their family. Camp is a very magical place where year-round skills are developed and where a child with a disability can just be a kid. Contact Ashleigh Peska for more infromation.
