Shakeenah Gurley, Reagan's mom, is one of the most creative and innovated ladies you will ever meet. The idea, no doubt a God-Idea, was this: She purchased a large baby bottle and Reagan would walk around in the church sanctuary prior to the worship service soliciting money, large or small, from the people of our congregation for Falcon Children's Home, as well as after the service.
Their goal was $1,000. They exceeded that goal by $230.79 for a total of $1,230.79.
I know the people who gathered at the Culbreth Memorial Auditorium were delighted to see this nine-year-old girl who raised that kind of money.
Russell Gurley is the father who is a member of our church council. He is a builder, contractor and a master carpenter. He does excellent work. He is a gifted teacher, and wants Reagan to love and study the Bible.
Russell and Sakeenah invited Scott and Kathy Bray from our church to go with them. What a wonderful way to enlist and educate others about Falcon Children's Home.
