Havre District Annual Campout
The weekend of July 31 found folks in the Havre, Mont., district enjoying an annual campout in beautiful Beaver Creek Park in the spectacular Bears Paw Mountains. Attendance was the highest ever with friends and former members gathering from Virginia to Washington for a feast of worship, fellowship and fantastic food. Jim Jenkins, former pastor, and his family returned to lead the vespers and church services. Several former members of Praise Strings assembled to lead the music. The highlight of the weekend was the baptism of Christian Thomas by his father, Richy Thomas, current pastor. All rejoiced as Christian gave his testimony and was immersed in the bracing waters of Beaver Creek. It was special to have Christian's grandparents, Marilyn and Jerry Thomas from Auburn, Wash., on hand to witness this event and be part of the weekend. The messages, weather, setting and fellowship produced a wonderful weekend. Everyone is looking forward to the event next year.
