Wow! What an exciting couple of days.
On Sunday, I was privilege to preach the mission’s emphasis day for a good friend of mine, Pastor Tom Hatley, as Fellowship Baptist Church in Maryville, TN. What an honor it was to be there. The folks at Fellowship gave over $1000 to help with Camp Rhino. This great church has been a great partner in the ministry for several years now.
Now for Monday. Pastor Brian Haney of Anchor of Hope Baptist Church in Rossville, GA had me in to preach the Monday night of his missions conference. This church has been supporting our ministry for almost three years now. Unexpectedly, Pastor Haney took up a special offering at the end of the service for Camp Rhino, and the people gave $2195. I was blown away. He was hoping to get $1000, and over $2000 came in. Amazing.
Over $3200 in two days! Praise the Lord.
I don’t have the words necessary to show the appreciation I have for everyone who has given to help purchase property for the camp. I’m humbled, and honored.
So far $29,188 has been given or promised. We do hope to raise $4144 more during these last few days of April to put us at $33,332 to stay on pace to raise $100,000 by the end of the year. I believe it will come in, but please continue to pray.
Camp Rhino will impact young people like these for years to come.
