Keith MacBryde,12, and Ethan McLennan, 11, of Hickory Grove Church of the Nazarene in Double Springs, Alabama, wanted to do a missions project. With the help of their Sunday School teacher Bobbi Smith, they decided to start with selling hot dogs on the Wednesdays when the local NMI meets. Bobbi who does the NMI mission lesson each month was excited to assist them with their project. “So far,” she reports, “they have collected over $138.00.”
Keith and Ethan handle the entire project by themselves—cooking the hot dogs, serving them, providing condiments and drinks, and counting the money. They are now assisted by two new Sunday School members Jordan, 10, and Jeremiah, 8, who are the grandsons of Pastor Steve Sain.
The Hot Dogs for Missions fundraiser is a part of the Alabama North District children’s missions project. The children on the district are raising funds for sidewalks and other items for Melanesia Nazarene Bible College.
