amp meeting makes great memories, and the following are some special traditions some campmeeting goers have shared: • One Pastor gains a huge blessing from the spiritual food every year and enjoys catching up with old friends from around the Carolinas and beyond. • The Arden Adventist church gathers every year under the old tree by the Stone Chapel for yummy food and uplifting conversation. • One family in particular enjoys a stroll

in the Susan Wesley Gardens while taking in the beauty of the flowers, concluding the afternoon with a picnic in the gazebo. • One family buys sweet rolls from the ACBC just for Sabbath—a much-anticipated tradition. They follow it up with a pleasant walk around the lake. If you have not already created your own special memories for camp meeting, why not take one of these and tailor it to your family. Be creative and have fun making special moments with your loved ones. by: Katrina DeMonceaux

h hatt a bl blessing i we are enjoyj ing this year at Camp Meeting! For four nights we were inspired by Mark Finley’s messages, and now Doug Batchelor is here to bring us more revelations from God’s word. Two of our church’s most outstanding speakers in the same week. Who could ask for more?

Doug Batchelor is an evangelist, t the author of several books, the s speaker of Amazing Facts Presents, a pastor of the Sacramento Cenand t Seventh-day Adventist Church. tral H is also the speaker on Bible He A Answers Live, a one-hour paid radio p program broadcast over 325 radio s stations across the United States a and on satellite radio around the w world. Thursday night, Pastor Batchelor s shared the story of Rahab from the b book of Joshua, which shows the s salvation of God, the imminence of J Jesus coming, and how to be ready f that day. for Jericho was the gateway to Can naan, which the Israelites had to c conquer in order to conquer Canaan. J Joshua sent out two spies who hid i the house of Rahab. She told a in “ “strategic lie,” and put her own life on o the line in order to join the side of o God, telling them, “I know that the Lord has given you the land.” L She asked them for kindness for herself and her family, since she had h shown them kindness. She knew s that judgment was coming, that she was under a death sentence, and the only way to receive mercy was by a covenant with God and His people. The spies answered, “our lives for yours.” Then she let them out of the city by a scarlet rope, reminding us of the way that Jesus was let down

from heaven to save us. Rahab must have pled earnestly with her family and friends to join her in safety, and the house must have been packed. She became the means of saving many people. God can use anyone in his work, and it will be finished when each of us realize that we need to help save others. For six days Joshua and God’s people marched around Jericho, and on the seventh day, seven times. Then the walls fell, trumpets sounded and the people shouted. This scene will be repeated in a much more spectacular and dramatic way when Jesus comes again. Thousands of years ago, God led Joshua and his people into the promised land. And some day soon, the second “Joshua” will come to lead His people into His eternal kingdom. Only those who receive Him will remain standing on that great day. We need to be telling the people in our communities that Jesus is coming. We need to study, meet together and witness. We are living on the border of the promised land. When the world is in great turmoil, engulfed with disaster, “it will not come nigh thee.” Pastor Batchelor closed his sermon by appealing to every one of us to be like Rahab and receive the Lord’s messengers, praying for a revival in our personal devotions. by: Tom Mills

sd dozens off racers lined li d up Friday F id morning for the annual 5k and one-mile Fun Run, dark clouds loomed above, threatening to rain at any moment. Participants of all ages waited for the horn to announce the start of the run around the campus of Lake Junaluska. The 5k runners were the first to take off. Ten minutes later the one-mile runners followed. The rain held off, and within about six minutes the first mile-runners returned; the remainder returned at varying times.

Friends and family who participated together crossed the finish line handin-hand and arm-in-arm. Some parents and children ran together, and a few even finished while carrying their young one. This event benefits everyone who participates, and also helps brighten everyones’ day, said Scott Young, pastor in the Durham district and race organizer. “We Adventists believe in the health message,” Scott said. “This is a good way to get people to come exercise.” The top three females who had the best overall run time were Tammy Mapes, Kathleen Withrow and Wyntre Robinson. The top three males were Ethien Arboledal, Chris Pandelos and Jeffery Lorenz. For a complete list of winners in the age categories visit carolinasda.org. by: Sara Crowder

He e is passionate e about equipping g lay people to o become church h planters. by: Brittainy Brown
