The Gifts of Oshkosh
By Doug Bing, Washington Conference president
What is it like being at Oshkosh with the International Pathfinder Camporee? An abundance of things come to mind!
When I look around, I see 57,000 people camping in all manner of tents, campers and hammocks. Pathfinders are completing honors, praying, playing, listening, waving flags, marching, singing, and many are making decisions for baptism.
I also see many gifts on display. Spiritual gifts.
A temporary city of 55,000+ people creates some curiosity! The Wisconsin network of USA Today and other media outlets are stopping by the International Pathfinder Camporee this week to find out more about how this event is helping youth grow spiritually and see the world.
Pathfinders are participating in their own Sight & Sound Bible story theater experience through the Chosen evening production!
Hope Channel is live streaming the evening and Sabbath programs, as well as all of the baptismal events. You can watch previous programs, find app connections, explore schedules, and purchase DVDs of the David-and-Goliath story! The 6-DVD set is on sale through AdventSource right now for $75 (value $99).
You will particularly want to watch on Friday night at 6 pm (Central) when our NPUC baptisms are scheduled!
Washington Conference leaders would like to say hello to you at one (or more) of these upcoming events. When you see them, please mention this "hello invitation" from Washington ACTS!
