The Biggest Cowboy Camp Meeting Yet!

The third annual Cowboy Camp Meeting at Elk Springs Ranch near Florence, Mont., was ushered in by clear blue skies, bright sunshine and happy faces.

First-nighters were treated to generous helpings of praise and worship with Robert McGuire, a musician from Oklahoma, and other musical guests. Bill Kilgore, Southwestern Adventist University professor of religion, back for the second year by popular demand, presented an inspirational opening address.

The following day was filled with activities beginning with the annual Chili Cook-off won by Michelle Vanderbyl from Stevensville. In the afternoon everyone was treated to a chili dinner complete with all the trimmings.

Sabbath was packed with praise and worship and good food. Kilgore spoke about the prodigal son in the morning session and about the older brother in the evening session. More than 500 people attended the Saturday evening meeting, making this the biggest cowboy camp meeting yet for this area.

The response to several altar calls was gratifying with many people giving their hearts to the Lord. All those attending pledged their lives to a closer walk with our Lord.
