Camp Meetings

It is important to debrief and regroup from time to time. It was very encouraging to be able to travel to Saskatchewan to visit Big river Bible Camp and Pine Ridge Bible Camp—both residential camps operated by NCEM missionaries. To be able to discuss challenges and joys and encourage one other while sharing resources and ideas is of inestimable value. I very much appreciated the opportunity to visit these camps this Fall.

We enjoyed a round table discussion with many of the other camp workers.

Second Annual Christmas Craft Market

Our second annual Christmas Craft Market was a great success. We are so thankful for everyone who was able to come out and volunteer to make it a success. Through the event we were able to raise enough money to put new signage on the property. Further to that, it was great to see so many new faces and give them an opportunity to see the facility we have here.

We set up a cosy spot for people to enjoy their lunch. 

We are so grateful for the generous donation of our beautiful Christmas Tree from McCready's U-Cut. 

Liz hosted a table of baked goods. 

We had a number of vendors offering a variety of different home made goods. 

We served "Christmas Dinner Poutine" and it was a great success.

A lil' visit to NBBI

It was a privilege to be able to visit New Brunswick Bible Institute. We had a ministry team from the school join us at Arrowhead this year for a week of summer camp - and it was nice to be able to reconnect with them and meet some new faces as well. It's always a pleasure to visit the school.

We took the opportunity to sit in on a couple of classes while we were at the school. Dave Doherty is an Associate Missionary with NCEM and represents the mission on the campus; he serves as the Campus Pastor, the Academic Dean and facilitates many of the courses.
