Little Southwest Baptist Church

This past weekend, Liz and I were invited to be a part of the missions conference at Little Southwest Baptist Church in Sillikers, NB (near the Miramichi). LSWBC has been a great supporter of ANBC this past year and it was great to connect with the work team from this past April as well as Stephen & Selena Somers, our guest speakers for the last week of summer camp and all of the folk who have been prayerfully supporting us. Brad Somers, a church planter from the North end of Halifax, was our keynote speaker, his challenges were encouraging and thought provoking. We were so very encouraged to be among a church of people who have such a huge heart for missions. There is a genuine love and understanding for faith missions among the folks at Sillikers - to hear their hearts, and see them put it to action was humbling.

This week, we've enjoyed a couple of 'down days' to recuperate from a busy month of travel and work at the Center. It's been nice to be a part of so many missions conferences and services - but it certainly takes it's toll.

The missions display on the platform.

Stephen Somers was our camp speaker for the second week of teen camp this year. He ministered in music throughout the missions conference.

We'll be winterizing the lodge this week and preparing for the next few months. We are hopeful to hold winter programs next year, but this year we will use our time to build a new staff training program for our summer camps and plan our schedules.

We'll continue to keep you posted here on the blog as we embark on our first year as the managers of ANBC. Stay Tuned!
