Dear Friends and Supporters:
YOUTH CONFERENCE – It is always a “Big” week at Mt. Salem with all the 4th of July decorations, which adds to the excitement! This year we had a great turnout of churches. The week was filled with fun-packed organized games and free times for swimming, zipline, paintball, rifle range, horseshoes, and the game room. During the morning and evening preaching services many teens made life-changing decisions for Christ. On Tuesday, July 2nd, we held our outdoor Patriotic Program with live gospel music, a Patriotic Presentation on the multimedia screen, concessions and grillers, and a Fireworks Show at dark. We also had the honor of meeting Hershel Williams, the last living Medal of Honor recipient of WW II. Not only did we have a great crowd that night with those attending the Youth Conference, but many people from the surrounding towns came out and enjoyed the outdoor program with us.
FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN BIBLE CONFERENCE – This is the next event on the calendar scheduled for October 11-12, 2013. What a wonderful conference this is during the blaze of fall foliage. Our guest speakers will be Dr. Charles Hiltibidal of Raleigh, IL, and Pastor David Bishop of Patrick Springs, VA. They will be preaching on Soul Winning and Bible Prophecy. Some exciting events of the conference will be split sessions for men, women, teenagers and children, an auction to benefit the winter needs of Mt. Salem (please bring auction items), and a raccoon hunt, Hang-Time zipline, the game room, rifle range, skeet shooting, bicycles, horseshoes, and gymnasium. From the preaching to the food and fellowship, you don’t won’t to miss this great Bible conference.
THE PAYNE’S NEW HOUSE AT HALLELUJAH SQUARE – Many thanks to all the workers of both Nehemiah Work Weeks and volunteers who helped this summer to build the Payne’s house. The upstairs will be their living quarters and the downstairs made an addition for the canteen order/receiving area, for extra picnic tables, and a storage closet. MARK YOUR CALENDER FOR SNOW CAMP – Make plans now to register and attend this year’s Snow Camp, February 6-8, 2014. We will be sending more details in the near future.
Thank you for investing in the lives of young people through your prayers and financial support to this ministry.
Because He lives,
Dr. Randy E. Taylor
