If you wake up tomorrow and there’s a preacher standing in your yard, don’t panic. Just reach for your wallet.
Immediate preacher repellent will cost you a $20 donation. For an additional $10, you can tell him where to go. (You name the household where the preacher statue goes next). Want a guarantee the pastor statue will not return to your yard? Well, that will be another $50.
The preacher statue is a life-size cutout of Pastor Thom Bowsher from Central United Methodist Church in Milbank. The church started the fundraiser, aptly called “Get the Preacher Out of Town”, to fund its mission to Africa.
Pastor Bowsher and his son and daughter, Wesley and Madison, along with Arvid and Janet Liebe, will travel to Zimbabwe the first week in August. The group will assist the natives in their current farming cycle.
So, if you want to help get the preacher out of town or just want to get him out of your yard, call Janet Loeschke at 605-949-2720.
