Please read the following letter from the president of the Ohio Bible Mission, Pastor Donald Gallion, and view Memorial Day 2016 detailing this annual event. We hope to see you at Peniel Bible Camp on Monday, May 30th!
Dear Members and Friends of the Ohio Bible Fellowship,
“Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also“ [Matthew 6:20-21].
One application of this verse is that God’s people should live their lives on this earth for the Lord and not for this earth that is passing away. Another application is that what we consider as valuable on this earth determines where our heart is – whether it is focused on the passing things of this earth, or upon the Lord.
We hope that Peniel Bible Camp is part of where your heart is. Admittedly, Peniel Bible Camp is here on this earth, but we, the Lord’s servants, have dedicated all of the Camp’s grounds and programs to the Lord and his eternal purposes. We believe that Peniel Bible Camp is worthy of a place in your heart and is a vehicle for you to lay up for yourselves treasure in heaven, as you serve at the Camp, attend the Camp, make spiritual decisions at the Camp for the Lord, and support the work of the Camp with your gifts.
A quality camp facility requires constant maintenance and upgrades of existing resources, but also new projects. We as a board have set a Memorial Day Offering goal of $5,000 to cover expenses for the new Outdoor Game Building, to install a second bathroom in A-Frame 1 cabin, and to add another cabin to our lakefront area – both to enhance and add features to our camping programs. Please see our website and Facebook page for more details about our camp. Please see the attached flyer for Memorial Day program details.
We thank you for your service and support for the ministry at Peniel and look forward to how the Lord will bless in the future as we faithfully follow Him. I will be glad to answer any questions you may have.
For the Lord’s Glory,
Donald L. Gallion
President, Ohio Bible Mission
