West Salem Mission
Tentative dates: 3rd weekend in August 2023
An Incredible Experience!
Campmeeting 2022 felt like it was the best yet! A simple style combined with excellent spiritual presentations has proved to be in incredible blessing to the many who attended. In spite of the downpour which soaked some of our campers, many remarked that this was the best campmeeting they had ever attended. We praise the Lord for His goodness in allowing this event to run so smoothly. A sweet and calm spirit pervaded the campus the entire time. Sabbath our numbers swelled to a full tent of over 700 people.
Pastor Pavel Goia shared amazing stories from his experience living in communist Romania. Pastor Ron Kelly provided timely instruction of how to live in unity among ourselves, speaking the truth in love. Steven Gamallo encouraged the early morning attendees with solid Biblical instruction. Lee Wellard taught how to use herbs for many common maladies and had an answer for every question posed to him during our Q&A sessions.
The children enjoyed many hours of outdoor games such as volleyball, capture the flag, and a new game that is sort of like dodgeball but in the sand! Gabriel Hagan taught the children, ages 5-10, to honor God in all that they do. A new feature this year was Ministry Lane, with at least 8 ministries setting up their booths and helping us become more aware their work and materials offered.
