Camp Barkeley Update- March 2017
Happy Spring everyone! We have had a fun month! Thank you each for your prayers and for pressing in to what God is doing! We have thoroughly enjoyed the process that we are in and we look forward to seeing fully all that is currently unfolding.
In the beginning of the month, Norm and Angel Poorman, our faithful leaders, went to Guatemala for Dental and medical missions. The linked arms with Liberty University, and Watts of love. They hit the streets with medical interns and other doctors to bring hope, healing, and life to the residents in Guatemala! Stories of physical, and emotional healings showed the goodness and the love of God that is so tangible.
At one of our Missionary Homes, House of Kindness, we hosted a neighborhood BBQ for the community! It was a great time for families to have fun, and old friends to reconnect! Our resident missionary family that lives there, Tim & Jeannette, did such a great job planning and hosting! It was beautiful!
Some of our Camp Barkeley family going to the streets of Abilene and serving those in need with our partner ministry "Love and Care." We load up trucks with people ready to love, and hot meals. We meet some of the most incredible people on the streets of Abilene and we see Jesus in each of them!
What a beautiful night of worship and encountering the King of Kings with our Kaleo International family from Mexico. They were here in Abilene for an entire week for refreshing and rest. These represented here are on the front lines of the mission field, constantly serving and pouring out their lives for the sake of the gospel . They truly have hearts to do whatever it takes for the love of Jesus to cover the Earth! To every tribe and every tongue. We love our Kaleo Family!!
We enjoyed spending time with our Iris Family and visiting about how amazing and good God is! It is incredible to think about how God connects His family, the Body of Christ, all over the world.
