A Purpose-filled Summer

By: Bentley Hill

What do the following three things have in common? Great preaching, sweaty kids, and tasty snow cones

If you guessed Kiamichi Baptist Assembly, you can give yourself a pat on the back. For 79 years now, KBA has been welcoming campers and sponsors to get to know God better under towering pine trees and through biblical preaching. Last year, all the weeks of careful planning had to be placed on hold; however, I can’t help but believe those circumstances have simply made this year even sweeter. It has been so great to hear the laughter of the campers echoing across the campground and see the good crowds under the tabernacle roof. Jay and Martha have done an amazing job rebooting KBA and making this a special summer for everyone involved. We have had two youth camps and a children’s camp with one children’s camp remaining. Churches have brought young people who have experienced God’s life-changing love, some of them for the very first time. It would seem that God has again blessed this sacred place in the Winding Stair mountains.

In addition to the decisions and growth that takes place at KBA, I also believe God is pleased with the cooperative effort that goes into making this camp all that it is. While the camp is located in LeFlore Baptist Association, it is actually a cooperative effort of five associations: Atoka-Coal, Frisco, LeFlore, Pittsburg, and Sans Bois. Representatives from these five associations meet annually to seek God’s direction for speakers and music, and churches provide financial support through monthly giving and the Father’s Day offering. Because of these investments, many of us can testify that God moved in our lives at KBA. Thank you for being a part of what God has done and continues to do at this camp. Once again we are reminded that we are better together!
