An incredible vision. A God honoring cause.

This carnival, hosted by friends of ours, is an amazing opportunity to pull together and serve a family that recently lost their precious husband and father.

Just this year, in January, the Lord took Eric Davis home. He leaves behind his wife of twenty years and their six children.

Eric was a very dear man who served his family, his church, his community and His Lord with all he had. Up to the very end. He ran and finished the race well. You would have loved him. We did.

In fact, I am convinced that if Eric Davis were here he would have been at the carnival working and serving right alongside the volunteers this Saturday. He would have worked and sweated with a smile on his face and a heart for Jesus.

~Eric and Heather

Now, we have an opportunity to serve our Lord by serving Eric's widow and children.

"Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world." James 1:27

If you and your family would like to have a part in this opportunity, here are a few things you might consider:

1. Pray as a family for Mrs. Davis and her children.
2. Buy a raffle ticket or make a donation toward the future education of Eric and Heather's children.
3. Spread the word! Post a link from your website.
4. Plan as a family how you can help.

If you are able to come to the carnival, that would be wonderful! You and your family will be blessed.
