Campers work on new cabin at Weir Camp

Kansas-Nebraska Campers on Mission held their fall rally Sept. 28-30, at Weir Baptist Camp, Weir, Kan.

There were 31 in attendance for the banquet on Friday evening followed by a missions presentation by Maxine Thorne. Maxine has been involved with a medical mission team that serves in Africa. She shared about her most recent mission trip. It made COM members aware of the need for the gospel to be shared all over the world.

The COM women made boxes from greeting cards which were filled with bracelets and necklaces made from church bulletins. These items were given to Maxine to distribute.

Projects at Weir Baptist Camp included working on Bethel Cabin, the new cabin now under construction at the camp. Work on the new cabin included installing knotty-pine paneling and ceramic floor tile and texturing the ceiling and walls.

Part of the group worked on remodeling an older cabin to be used by camp pastors and cooks.

The Campers on Mission ladies painted playground equipment, building trim and the sign at the camp entrance.

Bill Streeter, assisted by Tom Staggs and Don Smith, constructed cabinets to be installed in the Bethel Cabin.

“We had the pleasure of working our first week at Weir with Volunteer Christian Builders from Texas,” said Gary Shaw, outgoing COM president.

“This group erected Bethel Cabin and had returned to install insulation and sheetrock. They also installed some of the metal siding for the cabin.”
