Another camp meeting has come and gone. We are physically tired but spiritually our souls are uplifted and encouraged. We had the biggest crowd ever this year. I think I would be close to say around 600 in attendance. Not enough room in the auditorium for everyone one to sit ~ so a big screen was place in the dining hall and the service was seen from there.. Not the same, but mostly our church people went back there and let the visitors stay in the auditorium. Guess it's a good problem to have but it is just not the same.
We will begin our new sanctuary soon and next year that problem will be solved. If you want a blessing ~
make plans to attend next year. It always starts Father's Day through Thursday night. We have accommodations for people to stay. Also, the homes of the church people are open for people to stay.
You will be fed three times a day absolutely free. Unless you have never eaten good cajun food ~ you don't know what you are missing.! There is a lot of work that is put into the camp each year because we, as a church,want to be a blessing to others.
We have the best singing in the world. Youth choir takes a lot of patience and practice. Mrs. Tammy, our pianist, practices every Sunday Evening all year long. She really is so talented. The parents make sure the children are there every week. She could not do this without faithful parents.
Our pastor is the best. There is a reason. He spends plenty time in prayer, fasting and getting the will of
God for each service. He is the best leader that any people could have. He leads by example. We thank God for Mrs Ceil, his wife. She is an example of a Godly Christian woman. God has surely blessed us.
I feel sorry for churches and leaders that just go through a form. If someone said "Amen" or "Praise the Lord" in the service ~ oh well, I won't get off on that~ but we at Fundamental Baptist enjoy serving the Lord.
The Lord dealt with me on several areas in my life as I'm sure He did several others. We just want to draw nearer to the Lord and be a blessing to others.
For you that are interested in Little Logan Watts ~ God is performing miracles. The big hole that the doctors saw in his eardrum is completely gone. The doctors took a 2nd test and could not understand what happened. But like Britney, his Mom, said, we know what happened. The Lord healed him. Logan is now in New Orleans taking therapy. He is having to learn everything over again. Britney said he really gets frustrated with speech therapy. He wants to talk so bad. We are so anxious to hear what he will have to say when he can talk again. He is doing good with his motor skills. He still has a long way to go and still needs much prayer. Britney and Jonathan are such a blessing. They don't understand why and don't question God but just praise God for His goodness. I wonder how many of you mothers with a 6 yr old child would pass the test like these parents have? I wonder what I would have done in a simuliar situation?
This accident with Logan has done so much for our church. We have hurt with them, rejoice with them, prayed for them and supported them in every way. That's what Christians do! Love each other, support each other, pray for one another. It has drawn us closer as a church family.
I honestly feel God is trying to do a mighty work here at Fundamental and the devil does not like it. But we are on the winning side. That is our theme song.
I'll try and post more often now that school is to an end until September. Adam has done an excellent job. He has a 4.0 average for the year. Until later have a blessed week-end.
