The mother is Sakeenah Gurley and her daughter is Reagan. Reagan is now 9 years old and is in the fourth grade at Athens Christian School. Her father is Russell Gurley who is a member of our church council. He is a contractor and builder. He is a master carpenter and does excellent work. He strives to be good role model for his daughter Reagan.
It was Sakeenah who had the idea--I think a God-Idea. There are three kinds of ideas:
- A good idea
- A great idea
- A God idea
The financial goal each year is $1,000. Thus far, they have raised $844.00. So, today, Sunday, November 20, they need to raise $160. I believe they will get it and go over their goal. Although our congregation is small, our people are most generous in their giving.
The Gurleys will leave on Monday to travel to Dunn, NC to spend the night in the Hampton Inn, the tallest building in the city, five floors. They will attend the Harvest Train festivities and the program with the drama in Culbreth Memorial Auditorium.
Mr. Joey Leggett, CEO of Falcon Children's Home, is aware they will be present, and he plans to recognize this precious nine year old girl, her mother and father.
For those who will be in attendance, please look to see Reagan Gurley. She is absolutely beautiful and a charming nine-year-old girl.
What is so important for Reagan she is learning at a young age to be actively involved in the church, and is becoming aware of the bigger picture, i. e., the needs of children and teens who need love, protection, and a Christian home.
Hugh's News salutes Reagan and Sakeenah Gurley and Russell Gurley for their work and investment in this worthwhile project.
I pray that this year's Harvest Train will be the best ever. Joey Leggett is doing a superb job as the CEO of Falcon Children's Home.
