Cynthia Bassham, Registered Dental Hygienist at Drumright Dental Center has announced a date, August 14 and 15, 2009  for the second Love Thy Neighbor local mission event. The Friday night kick-off on Aug. 14 will once again be at Whitlock Park in Drumright.  Area Pastors, businesses and local people will be providing a variety food and entertainment for the crowd. “The mission service day begins in the morning on August 15. I am hoping to have more services available this year.” said Bassham, who organized the event in 2008. Cynthia quotes from the Bible:

25

One day an expert in religious law stood up to test Jesus by asking him

this question: “Teacher, what should I do to inherit eternal life?”

   26 Jesus replied, “What does the law of Moses say? How do you read it?”
   27

The man answered, “‘you must love the Lord your God with all your

heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.’ And, ‘Love

your neighbor as yourself."”

Rather than participating in an over-seas mission project, Bassham decided to organize a local mission day. To participate, “just be kind to a neighbor, demonstrate an act of kindness, that is all we ask!” said Bassham. For more information about the Love thy Neighbor event call Cynthia at 918/223-5798.
