YOUTH NEWS . . .
July 10, 2018
SETBA Youth camp was great! I have been to many mission trips, camps, and retreats over the years and without hesitation I can say that this camp was by far my most favorite! Twelve students accepted Christ, about twenty rededications, and several more decisions where made that will impact the lives of so many going forward. A big thanks to Tim Ramsey for bringing the word of God to us and Frank Aragon’s family for providing the best music I have ever heard on the camp level! Charles Hunt and the SETBA churches for their prayerful support and financial backing. What a great planning group we had in Terri and Scott Foneville (Circle Drive in BC), Kerri Overton (FBC Winnie), Adam McIntyre (7th Street Baptist in Nederland) and of course Charles Hunt who is our associational DOM. This group will begin planning camp 2019 very soon. We where blessed with the following churches who attended: FBC Bridge City, FBC Winnie, 7th Street Baptist Nederland, Circle Drive Bridge City, MacArthur Heights in Pinehurst, Latexo Baptist near Crocket, Magnolia Baptist in Cleveland, and The Source in Vidor.
Thanks to all these churches for helping us put on a great Camp and most of all we will thank God for it was only by His grace and provision that the SETBA camp was such a success.
No rest for many of us form the group and Real Life is NOW! If you would like to help out let me know as we will have plenty to do! Don’t forget to bring a few boxes of Little Debbie cakes, Lemonade mix, individual bags of chips, and cookies! This will help dramatically defray the cost of this conference! If you would like to donate an item but have little time to shop for them, you can donate the money and we will do the shopping for you!
I am really excited to see what all God will continue to do through these ministries and more in the coming months! Look for next weeks article for new information on or summer POD groups and their new point standings!!

As you are reading this, our students will be finishing up a great week of camp in beautiful Newton, Texas. I have been privileged to have been able to be the camp director for the SETBA youth camp in 2018 and look forward to continuing working with this association. I know God will do many great things through this revitalized ministry. We will have over 100 students in attendance at camp, and every single one of them will be changed due to God and His marvelous works.
It is also time to begin talking about Real Life! Yes, it is already July and Real Life is here. This year’s conference will be held beginning August 5th and run through the 8th so please mark your calendars and plan to help. We will also begin taking food donations this week as well. As usual we will look for Individual bags of chips, cookies, Little Debbie snack cakes, and of course lemonade mix. You may drop any of these items off at the church office during regular office hours or simply give them to me on a typical Sunday. These small items go a long way to helping defray the cost of the event. If you are pressed for time, but still want to help with one of these items, you are certainly welcome to donate money and we will be glad to do the shopping for you! Just make sure and indicate Real Life on your gift envelope. Real Life was established in 1998, and ever since FBC has done an amazing job supporting such a wonderful conference. 2018 looks to be a great year if not maybe, dare I say, the best year yet.
