Greetings from Kelowna! Today, Pastors Ern Brake, Tom Glatts, and I will support and participate in the Okanagan Regional Camp Meeting. Pastor Anil Kinda is the guest speaker for the occasion. It is always a wonderful experience when our church families gather to worship the Lord and fellowship with one another. Please keep our 7 churches in Kelowna as well as the ones in the South and North Okanagan areas in your prayers!
The Camp Meeting season is here – it is exciting! This weekend, the one in Kelowna is the first of a series of our Regional Spiritual gatherings, which culminate with our Conference wide Camp Meeting at Camp Hope, July 26 – August 3. The SOP presents the key element for these assemblies of God’s people: “The success of the meeting [Camp Meeting] depends on the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. For the outpouring of the Spirit every lover of the cause of truth should pray. And as far as lies in our power, we are to remove every hindrance to His working. The Spirit can never be poured out while variance and bitterness toward one another are cherished by the members of the church… Nothing else in this world is so dear to God as His church. Nothing is guarded by Him with such jealous care. Nothing so offends God as an act that injures the influence of those who are doing His service.” (EGW, 6T, 42)
