Day two Camp in Sawang Dandin

Don translating Candice's testimony. In classes we taught about knowing God yesterday and had a special personal Testimony from American Volenteer Candice Christiansen. Her testimony about growing up in a environment which was hostile to Christianity was good for our youth who many are facing pressures from friends, family, school teachers not to become Christians
Game time in the sports area.

How we did not get any skinned knees, I do not know but the kids were having the time of their lives!

Having fun playing UNO with volenteer Miss Kristian Caynor (MK)

More game time and sports.

Running through the"Trees" game.

Prayertime with Tangmo.

Gail tells me that we have 45 campers today.

It has been a good week for camp with cool weather and overcast sky making outdoor activites good.

Ready for a week at camp March 30-April 4 here at Sawang Dandin Baptist Church

Thai school summer break is here and lasts from March through Early May. Two of our regular "summer" ministries is Special Intensive English Classes and Youth Camp. But this year, with our enlarged and completed facility, we are now able to do both all at our one location. This year we have added the new sports area with Volleyball, Basketball with new backboards and hoops, and other outdoor sports without having to leave our church facility.

We are hoping to have a number of new prospects for the gospel here through our Camp. We have invited adults and youth and will be providing meals and sleeping areas for the youth that come. Some will come as a "day camp: and go home to sleep each day. There will be many opportunities to hear the gospel through our classes and evangelistic meetings.
