Happy 60th Anniversary Mamaw and Papaw

Hey Friends,

This is Odie popping in for a quick post this Saturday. Today we are in Texas.

We were in youth camp this week in Louisiana. It was great to be there with Pastor Jerry Arnold and everyone involved. We had a great time!

For today's post, I want to wish my grandparents a happy 60th wedding anniversary! Mamaw and Papaw will be celebrating their special day on the 12th. 

We are thrilled that they have reached this diamond milestone! It is definitely an anniversary worth celebrating!

We gathered with approximately 102 family and friends on Memorial Day to celebrate my Papaw's 80th birthday and their 60th anniversary. You can read more about that special day in this post here.

It was one of the rare occasions that the whole family was in the same place at the same time. I am glad it worked out that everyone could attend.

Their love produced 4 children, in-laws, 7 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren.

I love my Mamaw and Papaw more than words can express. They have always shown their love for their family. They have a special way of making us all feel loved! I have never had to question their love and support. They have been there for the good times and the bad. Ready to lend a helping hand or cheer you on. I am proud to be part of the family!

Happy  60th anniversary, Mamaw and Papaw!!

Thank you for spending part of your day with me. I appreciate you taking the time to read. See you next time.

Good Samaritan Youth Camp In Pictures

The Good Samaritan Youth Camp is held at a rented facility each year in Pineville, Louisiana.

The camp is Rocky Creek Nazarene Camp. 

It is a pretty nice place with air conditioned facilities including the tabernacle, kitchen, dooms and hotel rooms.

The first thing we did Monday morning was roll our equipment to the tabernacle and set up our sound. It is not the easiest building for sound, but we got it dialed in and it sounded pretty good all week.

The camp is set up a little differently than most that we have been a part of. They do not schedule a day speaker, but preachers attending camp preach each morning. 

We have heard from Ozark Bible Insitute preachers, staff members, young campers and adult campers. In fact, Thursday we heard from two preachers that were both saved in this camp in 2011. One was saved on Tuesday night and the other was saved the next day.

They serve three meals each day and concessions after night service. They have lots of activities and games during the day and the camp seems to run smoothly. I have enjoyed preaching to the young folks and all the people attending the night services.

The response to the preaching Thursday night was nothing short of amazing. The Lord helped us all and I am so thankful. Hallelujah!

We appreciate Pastor Jerry Arnold inviting us to preach the camp. It has been our happy privilege to be here. I hope you enjoy the Good Samaritan Youth Camp in Pictures.

Thank you for dropping in.
