I saw jets of light shining from cities and villages, and from the high places and the low places of the earth. God's word was obeyed, and as a result there were memorials for Him in every city and village. His truth was proclaimed throughout the world. --Testimonies, vol. 9, pp. 28, 29. {ChS 112.2}

Camp Meeting


Camp Meeting was great this year... we had our grand- daughter for two days (one sleep) and enjoyed that a lot, but since she is only two (well, three in October), she got homesick for her mom and dad the second afternoon so we drove her to Abbotsford and had supper with Phil and Marylen and both of the little girls there. We had hoped that they would be able to come, but Marylen has just started a new job as a sort of Girl Friday for an agency of the Metro Bank (a Philippine bank) in Surrey-- a new agency-- and Phil has a busy life too. Anyhow, we saw them at the outset of the Camp, two days later for supper, and at the end for supper in New Westminster.

I really enjoyed hearing Miroslav Pujic (however you spell his name) talk about how to reach the Postmoderns... makes so much sense to me since I'm from that stock myself, and certainly identify most of the young people I know as being Postmodern. I also attended a lot of the sessions by Hal Gates and Betty Campbell on the Regeneration Ministries-- Christian 12-Steps to bring people back into relationship with Jesus. We were also blessed to have the full-size model of the Sanctuary-- Messiah's Mansion-- and that really brought that concept to life for us. Someone suggested they should blow the rams' horns (shofars) and they agreed that that might be a great thing to include for authenticity. And, for me a big thrill-- Dick Duerksen was there to end the Camp Meeting with his usual enthralling tales.

We were well fed, on many levels... now it is important for us to get out there and minister as we are called to do!
