Billy Compton, Interim Pastor
Posted: February 12, 2018 by Bro. BillyGod Calls at Christian Camp On Monday, July 15, 1963, I packed up a week’s worth of gear and headed to Camp Joy in Brownsville, Kentucky. It was hot and muggy outside, but I didn’t care. I was ready to take on the responsibility of counselor for eight ten-year-old boys through a week of camping: swimming, hiking, baseball playing, praying, studying the Bible, and much more. I was prayerfully hoping I would make a difference in these kids’ lives by sharing my Christian walk with them. God had something more in store for me than I realized. He guided me day-by-day, until by Friday, I felt the Holy Spirit nudging me to answer a call to be a pastor and serve in full-time ministry. Wow! I was telling others God would work in mysterious ways His purposes to reveal when I realized He was speaking to me. I went home with a calling and a new direction that began fifty-five years ago. God is still working to call young people when they draw aside and participate in a camp experience where they can focus exclusively on their spiritual lives. However, these experiences cost money. Kids need the funds to go to camp. Our kids at MHBC are worth your continued prayers and financial support. Many of you demonstrated your financial support last Sunday, February 12, as you participated in the youth spaghetti luncheon. Those attending donated $614.02. Thank you to Erin Cox, along with the volunteers and youth, who worked this event. Thankfully,Bro. Billy
