Indiana South District reports that lives have been made new as a result of kid and teen camps.

Eighty-seven campers attended the Kids’ Bible Retreat in southern Indiana. Rev. Earl Long spoke at the event and gave an invitation for those who had never placed their faith in Jesus to come forward and pray. Several children responded to the invitation.

A record number of teens attended this year’s Indiana South District church camp. Total attendance equaled 181, as Rev. Luke Jackson from North Carolina challenged the teens to “go all out for God.” District Superintendent Dr. Mark Eckart reports that 26 teens were baptized during teen camp. The worship team of Alanna Story of Noblesville, Ind., provided worship.

“I’m sure the baptisms caused much rejoicing in heaven,” said Dr. Eckart. “Praise God for these spiritual victories.”
