The Bishops Dinner

Micah and I had the privilege tonight to attend the Bishops supper in Moncton. They are having these Bishops dinners because both Camp Medley and Camp Brookwood are in desperate need of repairs in order to keep running. The camp boards are trying to raise the funds so they don’t have to shut down the camps.

Having both worked their we were asked to speak to the people attending the dinner on the importance Camp Medley has had on our lives and why we believe that it is an important youth ministry. I was a little nervous but God was so good speaking through both of us. I talked about how Camp Medley had changed my life and if it wasn’t for that youth ministry I might not have turned to Jesus in the lowest point of my life. Micah spoke about why this was such a good youth ministry and how important it is for the people in the Anglican Church to rise up and help the camp out with the funds it needs. We got to sit at reserved seats with the bishop, his wife, the archbishop and his wife, along with our new friend Peter Irish who is heading up the fundraising campaign. It was a fun filled night with entertainment by the drama team at a church in Shediac. The food was also very delicious.
