Blessings of a Watermelon Feast

Watermelon BarbWednesday evening of Camp-meeting 2015 ended with smiles and laughter as Connie McCormick and Melisa Mauk, of our Minnesota Conference Education Department, led out in a “mouth-watering” event. Volunteers lined up with knives in hand as watermelons were brought from a farmer’s wagon to their designated “cutting areas” outside the Adventist Book Center building. Light pink to dark red wedges were cut and placed in large serving trays.  When the evening meeting let out, many found their way to sample the melons.    What a great time it was for the volunteers to get to know each other and share this evening in service to others.

Throughout the event, Melisa Mauk collected donations which were given in support of this year’s Outdoor School Program. As many of you know, the Outdoor School Program is designed to provide opportunities for students in grades 5-8 to enjoy outdoor experiences, enhancing their physical skill levels, higher level thinking skills and hands-on learning experiences.

How blessed we are to have such caring hearts and supportive brethren to maintain and uplift our educational program! Wednesday evening of Camp-meeting 2015 proved to be more than just a blessing. It was a powerful example of church members, alumni and school family happily sharing together in a common cause; supporting our students!!!!! What a fine example of Christian Fellowship for our young people and new members to experience!!!!
