What a wonderful time we had on our ‘fantastic voyage’
at Older Adult Camp.
Our Cruise Director, Major Linda Wheeler-Older Adult Secretary-planned a wonderful time for all. Our ‘fantastic guests’ were Majors Fred and Betty Carver who are retired and living in Wilmington, NC.
Our first day brought a lot of different activities, and we even had carriage rides around the camp! The crafts were a lot of fun as well as beautiful frames to take home and enjoy. Putt-Putt Golf, Pontoon Rides, Table games and of course fishing at the lake filled our afternoon. That evening we had a fantastic “Hawaiian Luau” prepared by Major Star Branscum, and Captain Shannon Winters.
Our second day was even more exciting. Two Bible classes were taught, the English taught by Majors Fred and Betty Carver and the Spanish taught by Major Nancy Reyes. Once again the afternoon was filled with the games, fishing, etc. as well as Hand Bell Choir and Line Dancing. The evening dinner was the CAPTAIN’S DINNER. What a time we had. Captain (Major) Johnson was a debonair host for the evening. What a meal we had with shrimp, fish, and all the ‘fixins’ to go along with it. The campers were served by the capable staff. Dolly Parton as well as Kenny James entertained us and games were played, songs were sung, but the high-light was the dance at the end of the program. Everyone had a wonderful time at the Captain’s Dinner.
On Wednesday morning, what a powerful service we had. Our Hand Bell Choir preformed and was once again wonderful. The Camp Choir gave us a great offertory which we all enjoyed. Major Fred Carver brought the Sermon: “Stormy Weather”. The plan of salvation, and the hope we have throughout our lives storms were the topics of the message. At the end of the service, the most important call of the entire weekend was given, the altar call. Souls were lining the altar and many victories were won. Praise God for His mercies, and His grace and forgivness. The power of The Holy Spirit was truly felt in our hearts and souls.
