Campers on Mission celebrate God’s work

Kansas-Nebraska Campers on Mission are celebrating how God used them in a variety of settings in 2013.

This winter several COM couples will be serving the Lord in warmer climates.

After 2013 work projects in various places, the group returned to Weir Baptist Camp, 12 miles southwest of Pittsburg, Kan., for the fall rally and a work project. They held a work project at the camp in late May 2013.

The speaker on Friday evening of the fall rally was James Whitford, founder and director of Watered Gardens, a homeless mission in Joplin, Mo. Several COM members have served with Kansas-Nebraska Baptist Builders in wiring the new two-story addition to the Watered Gardens building just east of downtown Joplin.

Thirty-four people attended the fall rally. Nineteen COM members worked at the camp before and after the rally.

The COM women continued to make beaded bracelets that will be going to Liberia with Maxine Thorne on a medical mission trip in March 2014.

Before and after the 2013 fall rally, COM members kept busy doing a wide variety of projects at Weir Baptist Camp. They worked in Bethel Cabin, the second new cabin at the camp.

Bethel Cabin was completed in time for Pre-Teen Camp in June 2013. It can accommodate 38 people. This brings the camp’s sleeping capacity to 189 people.

COM members also worked on projects in the new addition on the southeast corner of the camp dining hall. The new addition consists of the clean-up area with a new dishwasher, plus a staff restroom and a storage area.

They also did some remodeling in the camp kitchen and the camp manager’s home.

Other 2013 Kansas-Nebraska COM work projects were held at:

  • Countryside Baptist Church, Americus, Kan.
  • Alpha Christian Children’s Home, Perry, Kan.
  • New Life Baptist Church, Independence, Kan.

Here is a list of upcoming COM events:

  • May 2-4, 2014—Kansas-Nebraska COM spring rally at Webster Conference Center, Salina, Kan.
