Camping Capers

For the next month, our church has some very special people around our parking lot and campus. The Alabama Campers on Mission (COM) is a national fellowship of Christian campers who share their faith while they camp. COM accepts short term volunteer assignments helping out with what is needed at particular sites. At our church, Providence Baptist Church, Clayhatchee, Alabama, we are in the middle of building a new multi-purpose building which will be divided into Sunday School classes, church offices and lots of storage space. Our construction team has welcomed the help from the COM and everyone is having a great time! Our church provides daily drinks, snacks and meals and lots of great fellowship! One of the nicest things to see is how they have accepted all the members of our church not only from the adults but to the children, especially our three daughters. Each member of COM (the men and women) have welcomed us into their lives, their stories, their campers and their hearts. I am so thankful for the help they've given me with the twins this week while I've played photographer around the site and the energy and effort they've given to Abby who has decided she's a great little construction worker! The COM will be here for the next month...as some only stay a week or two...and other new comers show up every week...we will continue to be thankful for their work.
