Pamper yourself to benefit Fire 4 the Nations
Mar 13, 2013 4:32 pm
Fire 4 the Nations is a missionary group that reaches out to people in troubled places and works to make the lives of the people there, especially the children, easier.
The mission-based organization in Lebanon works domestically and internationally to benefit children, primarily in developing nations. The group has worked in Africa, Myanmar and Brazil, and more recently in the Philippines and Japan, to bring spiritual and physical aid to children recently orphaned by typhoon, earthquake and tsunami disasters in the region.
Ministry Director Karen Barnes said the group works on three levels – locally by offering local youths a chance to participate in mission trips and summer camps, nationally by sponsoring mission trips to help the needy in the nation's inner cities and internationally to bring education, health care and spiritual guidance to people in other countries.
"We recently went to Uganda to work in an AIDS village and to build a shelter and a well in their village," Barnes said. "We've visited 13 countries."
These are the causes many want to support, and the Fire 4 the Nations Ministry again wants to make that support pain free by offering a second spa-day fundraiser to benefit their children’s ministry.
The ministry invites everyone to relax and enjoy a day of pampering March 23 from 9:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m., at Hunters Point Celebration Center in Lebanon with proceeds from the event designated to aid the cause.
"We want everyone to come to the spa day and bring others with them," Barnes said. "Bring someone who couldn't normally afford a spa day, and spread the blessing to someone else."
Local spas, salons, photographers, retail shops and stylists will be on hand to offer massages, haircuts and styles for the whole family, makeovers, facials, manicures and pedicures, color analysis, jewelry and more to participants. The services are free for customers who register and sign up for different appointments with the vendors. There is no charge for services, but those who indulge are encouraged to make donations to the ministry.
"There will be a list of what these services normally cost so participants can judge how much they should donate for them," Barnes explained. "Anyone can walk in the day of the event, but to ensure an appointment it's best to call in and pre-register."
Free pre-registration is suggested, and customers will be on a first come, first serve basis. For more information or to register, call 615-476-8863 or email email@example.com
Barnes is hopeful the spa day will be even more successful this year which will allow the Fire 4 the Nations to reach out to more people.
"This is our big thing for the year," she said.
