We took a quick trip to camp today to pay some bills and check up on the progress. Heavy rains have made for slow-going, but things continue to move forward. In these pictures you can see the columns being put in place in the pavilion, as well as some of the fill being laid down….

Yet Another Camp Work Day

As a “last hurrah” for a very eventful “vacation”, we had one last inter-church camp work day. This event combined the efforts of folks from the First Regular Baptist Church and the Good News Regular Baptist Church in Turu.

Amazing Picture

Yet, this is a truly amazing picture, for several reasons. * It represents men from two congregations here in São Luís–Kerigma and First Baptist–working together at our camp property. * It was taken at…
