Moultrie children's fundraiser taken to new heights

October 14, 2007

Moultrie -- Bryant Brown is a man on a mission, and he isn't afraid to go to extreme heights to fulfill it, literally.

Pastor Brown of Lakeside Assembly of God will be living in a lift at the intersection of Highway 133 and Veterans Parkway for a full week.

He has no running water, but he does have a great view of traffic. He even has a camping portable potty for, well, you know.

"All the money that is raised will go toward spreading the gospel, providing literature, providing Sunday school curriculum, all kinds of material for boys and girls all across the world," said Lakeside church member, John Norman. 

"I got my cell phone here, I'm felling real good. I got my tent. I got my bed, and I got people bringing water and food all the time," said Pastor Brown.

This fundraiser is a nation wide event with one other pastor in the state also spending a week up in the air for children in Toccoa, Georgia.

This is the second year Pastor Brown has done this to raise money for children.
