Mobility Conversion Van for Dave & Elaine Bogue!

Video:  Dave's Story 

Pastor Dave Bogue’s Family is creating a GoFundMe Account to raise money for Dave and Elaine to purchase a new Mobility Conversion Van.
On January 27th of 2017 Dave was injured during a scheduled back surgery. This injury caused him to experience permanent paralysis throughout his left hip and leg rendering him unable to walk and primarily placing him in an electric wheelchair to be mobile. His wheelchair requires a Mobility Conversion van with an on and off ramp that allows Dave to be mobile and to do ministry.

Dave is still serving as the Lead Pastor at Arlington Memorial Baptist Church in Akron, Ohio, and occasionally still accepts speaking engagements. His wonderful church family has completely accepted his disability and has graciously encouraged him to continue to be their lead shepherd. 

In order to continue in ministry and remain mobile Dave and Elaine need to purchase a new conversion van. Dave qualifies through the Ohioans with Disabilities Opportunities to have a van converted for him.  However, the Bogues are required to purchase this new Toyota Sienna van on their own for the conversion.  The van is estimated to cost $40K of which Dave and Elaine are responsible to pay for. The conversion of that van is also estimated to be $40K which The Ohioans with Disabilities Opportunities will provide.

Our family is setting up this GoFundMe Account with the goal of raising the needed $40K for Dave and Elaine to purchase the new van as we know that they are unable to purchase the van on their own at this time.  Dave still desires to serve the Lord and shepherd the Arlington Church. A new van will provide him with independent mobility and ability to continue to shepherd his church family and serve The Lord.

Will you join us in supporting Dave and Elaine in the raising of the funds?  Dave and Elaine have devoted their entire lives to care for others in times of need.  As their family, we believe this is a wonderful opportunities to bless them in return.
