Commission Results

This was the note posted in First Southern Baptist Church--Mountain Home's Sunday bulletin after camp:

Praise God for the results of Commission 2009-Under Construction

* Over 75 youth, counselors and staffers representing 18 churches worshiped God through a week of service to the community.
* Three youth were baptized Friday evening.
* Children were ministered to at the Backyard Bible Club.
* Many youth, counselors and staff made decisions to walk with Christ in a deeper way.
* Many friendships were made.
*$2150 was given for the missions offering which will sponsor our Compassion child for another year and help an orphanage in Costa Rica.
* The Environmental group painted a house, fence, did yard work and helped with a plumbing project for a local senior citizen.
* The Elemental group worked at the Mtn. Home Senior Citizens, Korean Church, helped clean the yard of a local family, painted an under pass for the City of Mountain Home and did a free car wash at Wal-Mart.
*The Production group helped the staff prepare for worship each night as we learned more about being silent before God, holiness, repentance and rejoicing in who we are in Christ. They also helped set up for fellowships, took many pictures and create slideshows. [Note: This was the team that Ted staffed.]
* The Creative group performed for 3 retirement communities, various parks and the Backyard Bible Club.
* The Street Evangelism group witnessed to many in Mountain Home, Boise and Strike Dam and led at least 5 to the Lord.
