Bugs 4 Christ Revamps VW Bug For Childrens Home | News
A Jones County group is poised to embark on an ambitious project in the name of Christ and charity.
Bugs 4 Christ, a 7-year-old mission that combines mentorship with car mechanics, will fix up a dilapidated 1972 Volkswagen Super Beetle and donate the proceeds to the Methodist Children's Home in Macon.
"It's a parts car that someone donated to us, and they thought it couldn't be restored," said Bugs 4 Life founder John Albrycht.
He says they plan to restore the entire car in 7 days. It typically takes up to 100 days spread out over more than a year.
"We want to attempt something so great that if God isn't in it, it's gonna fail miserably, and that way we can give God credit when he does something miraculous."
Albrycht says the car will be shown at various car shows this spring to promote the mission. After that, he hopes to sell it for 5 to $8,000 for the Children's Home.
The project starts Thursday.
