Staff Reports |

Grace Bible Church is sponsoring a barbecue fundraiser on Saturday to help full-time missionary Louis Gervais. 

Gervais is in need of a vehicle in South Africa. His mother, Annamarie Gervais, who is organizing the event, said with the rough roads, his vehicle now can’t make it. He needs four-wheel drive. 

She added that Gervais lives on a little more than $400 a month. A friend, Debra Moreno, suggested a plate sale to help raise money. 

The group hopes to sell about 300 plates, making $2,400 to send to Gervais.
