Vision Nicaragua Fundraiser at Texas Roadhouse

And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” (Mark 16:15)

We’ve got some GREAT events coming your way this Fall!

First up, we’ll have a Fundraiser Night with Texas Roadhouse – Asheville, NC, on Thursday, August 20th!

Bring your coworkers, friends, and family to Texas Roadhouse (230 Hendersonville Rd., Asheville) between 4 and 10 pm. Vision Nicaragua will earn 10% of your food purchases. Hello, fried pickles! 🙂

Simply print the flyer shown at right and present it when you get to the restaurant. This flyer shows your support Vision Nicaragua!

Our goal is to increase funding in our Sponsorship Program for the students, widows, and kidney patients that we are so fortunate to do life with! As a local community, let’s support our Nicaraguan community. Join us!

And, stay tuned here for more yummy fundraising events…

Tipping Point: Mysterious Kidney Disease in Central America

vision_nicaraguaSeveral times each year members of Bent Creek Baptist Church travel to Nicaragua to visit our friends there and help provide for their material and spiritual needs. One of the greatest burdens on Nicaraguans living along the Pacific coast is a disease called “chronic kidney disease of unknown origin” or CKDu. The locals call it “creatinina” — the Spanish word for creatinine, the enzyme that helps doctors evaluate kidney function.

Now, thanks to a news report by CNN, awareness of CKDu is becoming widespread. After years of ignorance and apathy clouded by obfuscation the news media is reporting this life taking condition. We pray this will lead to better research and treatment. (more…)

Time to Barbecue for Vision Nicaragua

BCBC supports Vision Nicaragua missions. Several times each year we visit our friends there and help provide for their material needs, as well as minister to them so they might come to know our Lord and His saving grace through His son, Jesus Christ.

To prepare for our next trip (next Tuesday, July 1st), a barbecue lunch fundraiser will be held on June 29th (Sunday) at noon after the morning worship service.

Please join us in the Fellowship Building for fine food, friendly fellowship and fruitful fundraising.
