The last few months have gone by exceptionally fast.
On Labor Day weekend Cooperstown Bible Camp
Labor Day Family Camp
August 31 – September 3, 2007

Speaker: Dr. Phil Brown
Worship: Special Delivery
asked Special Delivery to do the Praise and Worship for the 3 day family camp. Because of harvest Chuck was not able to be there so they agreed to have Cathy provide it. Having Sung there before made the decision a little less stressful for Catherine. She agreed to do it. What a great time –although was definitely not stress free. I typed the words on a Power Point like presentation and went armed with a jump drive, guitar and all the equipment.

We had a Friday night Session–Sat morning Session –Sat Evening Session– Sunday morning
session–Sunday evening session—and a Monday morning session.
Dr. Phil Brown ( this Dr. Phil is not on the Oprah show) teaches at a Fargo Christian school and spoke on relationships ( he also had some power points and video clips). Dr. Phil had a great way of getting the message across while giving God the Glory. Cathy and I came to appreciate Dr. Phil and his love for the Lord–it was Unmistakable.

Check out the Cooperstown Bible Camp website –lots of things to keep kids -dads–& Moms busy –can you say High Ropes (and I mean high)– wall climbing and even a zip line !!!

Chuck, Naomi, Alice and Gabe were able to be there on Sunday which was great and added a lot to the worship. I —as the sound guy–was also the power point guy–definitely a NEW experience.
Cathy was doing the other days by herself and I think It helped her mature as a singer to do things out of her comfort zone.

Grant Schelkoph (camp director) did a great job –I can see why families keep coming back year after year–some have turned it into a family tradition.
Sorry for the long delay with the updates–it has been quite busy the last few months including a weekend in Birtel Manitoba Singing–but that is another story.

Thanks for reading —Ron
