Trash to Treasure
An excerpt from Trash to Treasure
By Laura Coulter, Volunteer
Char Dabill with Honduran kidsOne man’s trash may be another man’s treasure, but in Baxter, Minnesota, Char and Bob Dabill and their friends use other people’s trash to build up treasures that will last for eternity. Each year, the Dabills hold garage sales to raise money for World Gospel Mission projects in Honduras. In 2009, they held five garage sales and raised about $12,000.
This kind of ministry can easily be repeated. Get together with family or friends and hold a garage sale for missions. Visit www.wgm.org/catalog for some ideas on projects you can raise money for.
