The Rev. Earl Rodgers has taken on the task of raising funds to help support a mission trip to China.

Drew Underwood, Warren Acres and Kevin Mings are planning a trip to rural China, where they will backpack in and deliver Bibles. The three are also preparing for future groups to follow in their steps. This is their first trip to China.

Rodgers will cook "a feast of some of the best barbecue available," he says. "We will feed all, regardless of his or her ability to pay. God will handle securing the funds."

Donations will be accepted. All of the money raised will go to the trip's expenses and the purchase of Bibles.

The cookout will take place on Saturday, Aug. 29 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Walmart Supercenter, near the general merchandise door.
