In response to questions regarding how to help Joel and Amanda Bonner following the fire:
As many of you have heard on Monday, July 13, the home of Joel and Amanda Bonner here at Aldersgate Camp & Retreat Center was struck by lightning and caught on fire. Luckily neither Joel nor Amanda were in the home when the fire started. They were able to retrieve their pets and a few personal effects but other items, including the home, are a loss.
Since that time Joel, Amanda, and Aldersgate have been flooded with Facebook messages, emails and phone calls asking what can be done to help them. For those who are interested in assisting them, an account has been established to receive donations in support of Joel and Amanda during this transition. Checks should be made payable to “Joel and Amanda Bonner” and mailed to Aldersgate Camp & Retreat Center. Gift Cards to stores such as Walmart, Target, and Lowe’s are also appreciated and can be mailed to Aldersgate:
Aldersgate Camp & Retreat Center

125 Aldersgate Camp Road
Ravenna, KY 40472
Please remember to make checks payable to “Joel and Amanda Bonner”.
You can also donate directly through PayPal by sending a donation through PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org or by clicking the link here: Joel & Amanda Bonner Home Fire Recovery
Once a longer term housing plan has been developed, Joel and Amanda may need home goods to replace items lost in the fire. That list will be shared with you in the near future.
Please keep our Aldersgate family in your prayers as we recover from this difficult time.
Thanks to all,
Director, Aldersgate Camp & Retreat Center
