Bible Day Camp starts in less than 2 weeks. Training starts for the camp counselors the day after Memorial Day. We have a great group of camp counselors who are looking forward to becoming a team so that God can use us for His Glory as we minister to our campers. Please keep the Bible Day camp in your prayers as many things will come up during the summer. Pray that the staff stay strong, healthy, and suffer the children to come to the Lord. Pray that the children will be safe as they go to and from camp and as we go on many planned field trips. We are believing that all the campers who don’t know Christ will have a relationship with Him by the end of camp.

Last night we had our final Celebrate Education sponsored by the Southwest Kiwanis for the 2011-2012 school year. We will have this celebration in the form of a picnic at Elmwood Park. We honored 47 students for academic achievement who have completed this school year. These students include current children living on Open Door Mission Campus. Hamburgers, Hot Dogs, chips & pop was on the menu. As always we want to say a special thank to Southwest Kiwanis, our Title 1 tutors, and teachers that make this possible.
