This Week's Promise to Share

Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. I have taken an oath and confirmed it, that I will follow your righteous laws. I have suffered much; preserve my life, Lord, according to your word. Accept, Lord, the willing praise of my mouth, and teach me your laws. Though I constantly take my life in my hands, I will not forget your law. The wicked have set a snare for me, but I have not strayed from your precepts. Your statutes are my heritage forever; they are the joy of my heart. My heart is set on keeping your decrees to the very end.

Psalm 119:105-112, NIV

As you pack and prepare, we have two requests and suggestions for your camp meeting experience:

Be Attuned to God:
Spend daily time in Bible study and prayer. Have a pleasant attitude of expectation. See what lessons God has to teach you. Pray for God to give you His eyes to see, His ears to hear, His hands to help, and His heart to care.

Be a Good Neighbor: Be nice to your neighbors at camp meeting and in the community. You are an ambassador for God wherever you go. Allow God’s love to shine through you!

Campestre Hispano 2018

Hispanic Camp Meeting was packed with the largest ever attendance this past weekend! The programming focused on empowering spiritual leader in the home to help families declare like Joshua did, "As for me and my family, we serve the Lord!" (Joshua 24). The Holy Spirit came down on this convocation as hearts were opened to God's leading!

¡La Reunión Hispana de Campamento estuvo llena de la mayor asistencia del pasado fin de semana! La programación se centró en empoderar al líder espiritual en el hogar para ayudar a las familias a declarar como lo hizo Josué: "¡En cuanto a mí y mi familia, servimos al Señor!" (Josué 24). ¡El Espíritu Santo descendió en esta convocación cuando se abrieron los corazones a la dirección de Dios!
