On October 14-15, we had our annual Fall Father/Son Campout here at The Wilds. Praise the Lord for some amazing Fall weather! We always have a mix of folks who come year after year and new folks, but for this particular camp about 1/4 of the group had never been to the Wilds before! That was exciting. They came from all of the neighboring states, and we even had one family come 9.5 hours from Ohio.
Pastor Jeff Rush from Mount Calvary Baptist Church in Greenville, SC was our speaker and did an amazing job preaching God’s Word to the 99 men and boys that attended. Through God’s Word and the Holy Spirit, he was able to both convict the fathers and lovingly teach the sons of varying ages.
Father and Son Campout is a great way for Fathers and their sons to spend a weekend making memories and being challenged by God’s Word. As I was packing up Saturday evening, I was walking in front of a dad and his 3 sons. I’m pretty sure this was their first time here. I heard one son say to his Dad, “This is the most awesome thing I’ve done in my whole life!” Thank you to the Fathers that took time out of their busy schedules to invest a little extra time into their son’s lives. May God bless you in your pursuit of pointing your sons to Christ.
