Campers on Mission plan work projects
Members of Kansas-Nebraska Campers on Mission are joining God’s work in numerous locations.
Several couples spent part of the winter working at Texas Baptist Encampment, Palacios, Texas.
Another couple served as chaplains in an RV park in Yuma, Ariz. They plan to return in the upcoming winter and continue this ministry.
Another COM member went to New Orleans and worked in rebuilding that is continuing nearly 10 years after Hurricane Katrina. She visited Gentilly Baptist Church, where Kansas-Nebraska volunteers stayed when they were working in post-Katrina rebuild in New Orleans.
Gentilly Baptist Church has hosted 14,000 volunteers since Hurricane Katrina. It serves as headquarters for Intervarsity students when they serve in New Orleans during spring break.
Several Kansas-Nebraska COM members spent two weeks working at Webster Conference Center, Salina, Kan., in connection with the spring rally held May 1-3. The group worked on the new dining-hall addition and performed many other tasks.
This summer several COM members are joining Kansas-Nebraska Baptist Builders in a project in Salina, Kan. Christ the Lord Community Church is constructing its first building using volunteers.
Upcoming Kansas-Nebraska Campers on Mission events are:
Aug. 10-14—Work project at Alpha Christian Children’s Home, Perry, Kan.
Sept. 20-25—Work project at New Life Baptist Church, Independence, Kan.
Sept. 25-27—Fall rally at Weir Baptist Camp, Weir, Kan.
