In Appreciation . . .

Dedication to a special donor
This Gallery is dedicated to Mrs. Joan Horner, a kind lady who went home to be with the Lord December 5, 2010. Mrs. Horner and her husband Andy are Co-founders of Premier Designs of Dallas, Texas. “ They created the company as a way to support ministries in the US and around the globe, as well as provide a home-based business opportunity established on Biblical principles such as integrity and unselfish service.”
In early 2010 when Mrs. Horner learned through one of her employees that our ministry was struggling to continue the work at Camp Finate she quietly and promptly made a generous donation to our ministry that allowed the work on the building and the sports field to proceed. Because of her heart for missions and her love of children and sports, we thought it only appropriate to name our sports field “The Joan Horner Sports Field” Below are some scenes that are possible only through her loving and generous contribution. Thank You Mrs. Joan Horner!

This summer we were able to purchase a microbus – to transport the mission teams from the US, children to and from the camp, and people in the community to church. Thanks to the folks at Kings Baptist Church in Kentucky and at Bible Baptist in Georgia for their generous donations that made this van a reality for us.
It is with grateful hearts to Damon Grainger, Calvary Baptist church of Savannah and Premier Designs of Dallas Texas that we can add the above picture to the appreciation page.
Under construction ,now the finished Pavilion will provide seating for 400 plus persons. It will be used for summer activities that include crusades for evangelization and preaching by local pastors.
