Better Life Camp Meeting In One Accord

September 01, 2009 | Sarai Romani

Better Life Broadcasting Network held their second annual camp meeting at Milo Adventist Academy, June 12–14. Nestled in the secluded pines of Days Creek, Ore., nearly a thousand people attended throughout the weekend. The main speaker was Jim Gilley, 3ABN president. His message, coupled with a variety of sacred music, made this camp meeting a focused time of reflection and fellowship. The theme was "Light Dispelling Darkness," a clear reference to the mission of Christian media ministries such as Better Life Broadcasting.

Rosalie Hurd, camp meeting attendee and author of Ten Talents, a cookbook, had this to say, "I am so impressed by the fruit of the ongoing labor of this ministry; it just keeps multiplying, reaping a huge harvest of souls. ... Who knows how vast and far reaching its affects will be as it continues to expand."

Nearly 60 children and youth between the ages of 3–18 attended. Pre-VBS children learned about "Paul and the Underground Church" complete with the making of Challah bread, Jewish braided bread, fruit kabobs, and the arts of scribe, baker and tent maker.

Donations toward the ongoing work of Better Life Broadcasting, as a result of this camp meeting, totaled $43,000.
