Camp Meeting Day 2

Tonight we received good news about a twelve year boy who was in a accident with his grandfather (the boy's grandfather was killed in the accident). They didn't think the boy was going to make it, but his aunt stood at the front of the church and told that he has no brain damage, he opened his eyes today and squeezed his mother's hand. It was very exciting hearing this good news.

The choir sung first and I don't know how many times they went through the song "We'll Soon Be Done With Troubles And Trials." It was great listening to them. Then when they took the offering up, they let Sister Benner and Nathan Davis play "Goodbye World Goodbye" on the piano. They both can really play that piano and they start off normal and while they keep playing they get faster the longer they go. Witness (the group singing at our camp meeting) did an awesome job tonight. I love listening to them sing. My mom bought Witness' bluegrass CD tonight and we listened to it coming home. It is a great CD.

Bro. Calvin Ray Evans preached tonight. He preached from 1 Samuel 17:1-3. He focused on the place Ephesdammim. Each place in the Bible has a meaning and Ephesdammim meaning is "The boundary of the Blood!" He told us no matter how strong the devil is, he can't pass the boundary of the blood. He also told us that he thought about the reason why David used a sling to fight with. And he said this thought came to him. He fought with a sling so he would not have to cross the boundary line of the blood. The message really helped me and I enjoyed it very much. Many people went to the altar to receive help.

I have not been to a camp meeting in many years. I have great memories of them from growing up and going every summer.

Sounds like a great sermon!

Our choir sings We'll Soon Be Done With Troubles and Trials too! We also sing Goodbye World Goodbye, although we haven't sung it in a while.

Glad you had a good time!
