Donations needed for local bible project

Nathan Stiles, a senior running back for Spring Hill Kansas High School, collapsed following his second touchdown in a game against Osawatomie in October of 2010. A short time later, this outstanding athlete and 4.0 student died just a few days before his 18th birthday due a traumatic head injury suffered in that game. 

Following Nathan's strong religious beliefs, his parents Ron and Connie have now devoted their lives to spreading God's word through his spirit by making free bibles available to anyone who wants one and now, local resident John Manning is extending their wishes by doing the same for all who attend Kamp Keirsey near rural Amsterdam this summer.

During each session of camp this year, Manning will be speaking about the Nathan Stiles project and wishes to provide a bible to every camper in need of one, however funding is needed to insure there will be plenty available. Donations may be made to either of the two addresses below, note that the words 'bible fund' must be included with the Butler address.
