Girls from Burke County enjoy a visit with 103 year old Elma Logue Economos, who still lives at her home in Waynesboro. Ms Elma talked to the teens about growing up in the early 1900s and her life of faith. The girls were doing service projects for the 4th-annual PluggedIn community girls event sponsored by several area churches held in Waynesboro. Pictured L – R Madelyne Goode, Maggie Brogan, Bailie Ruffo, Katelyn Tobat, Sara Boothe and Claire Johnson and Ms Elma.
We recently were asked to help with some design work for ads used in the annual Missouri Baptist Convention. We’ve been involved with the Bucket Project for the past couple of years with Baptist Global Response. Our recent trip to Kenya and Swaziland was primarily a filming project; but there were many still photo opportunities to help tell stories. This ad features an old lady who received a BGR Hospice Bucket and was overjoyed at the thought of the love that went behind this buck.
“The BICYCLE RIDE ACROSS GEORGIA is an annual odyssey of discovery of gorgeous Georgia by bicycle. BRAG is a family;oriented tour. It is not a race. It is recreational, social, and, in many ways, educational. While a strenuous journey, BRAG has been completed by all types of people – college students and first graders, judges and soldiers, teachers and grandparents. It’s like a fun summer camp for the whole family.” source
