After a wonderful breakfast, Dr. Danny Akin from Southeastern Seminary spoke on how to examine and teach scripture. He used Colossians 3:18-21 as his example.

After lunch, Richard Brunson and Paul Langston representing Baptist on Mission spoke about how Baptist and others have come together to minister to this community after disaster.

And not only during times of disaster, Dr. Paul Langston, EBA's  past Director of Missions spoke on other ways we have and continue to come together  using our God given talents and abilities to take care of the needs of those around us. The Paul Langston Wheelchair Ramp Ministry is one that involves many people every week to care for the needs of those recovering or those confined to a wheelchair. Under instruction of Richard Weeks, 
our current director of missions, you can be involved in helping restore someomes home or even be a part of a new home being constructed. Charity Rebuild is supported by The Baptist on Mission and give us all the resources and opportunity to be a part of God's work.

Chuck Register representing the NC Baptist Convention also spoke to the group to instill a sense of urgency among God's people.

Then Richard Weeks wrapped everything up by introducing a special  partnership known as,  
"Charity Equipping Center". What an awesome opportunity God has handed us-

 
Educating us through Southeastern Seminary,  Equipping us through NC Baptist Convention and Engaging us in God's work through the Baptist on Mission right here at Charity.

And of course-

Great Food!

Deep Impact Kids came to stay at the Charity camp for a Mini-week and left a BIG impression!

The DI Kids started out working in the Food Pantry that supplies needy people with groceries, working in the Home Goods room that helps needy or storm victims with household items and worked with some of the Thrift Store items getting them ready to sell.

After working in the Food Pantry the kids felt like there was not enough food. Ms. Tammy explained that the Lord will provide and  she explained why we need to pray in these situations-so they prayed. Early the next morning, a large check came in designated for the food pantry. God loves to build our faith when we step out and help and when we pray.

So then the kids wanted to be a part of the shopping process to replenish the shelves and they left a BIG impression on everyone there!

Our second Deep Impact group came in to work with local kids in a week long Sports Camp, worked in some of our rebuild homes and helped to construct wheelchair ramps!

The DI Teens also  worshipped together each day, played a little too-

And probably the most important thing is that they prayed together.
