Camp Braambos

We were privileged to again have over 55 people at our annuals weekend away at Camp Braambos. 59 people (children included) eventually found their way to Camp Braambos in the Hekpoort valley for the weekend of 13,14 and 15th August. We were particularly thanks full that quite a few Bible students from Tembisa could also join us
As usual the food was great and there were lots of time to enjoy good fellowship. The talks were given by four local brethren on the theme of the fruits of the Holy Spirit (Gal 5:22).
Sisters Liezl Scheepers and Trudy Clark organized the camp and everything ran very smoothly. We enjoyed the chant that we were taught - the words of which was specially designed so that we would remember the fruits of the Spirit and the importance of cultivating and practicing them. Saturday night around a huge bon fire while singing a variety of songs was very relaxing and it was great to see that different cultures can appreciate each other and enjoy spending time together. 
The camp was held earlier this year because of the Family Bible Conference that will be held in September. It was thus a little colder than previous years but everyone still got some warm sleep. Sunday afternoon arrived far to quickly and we all said goodbyes after a solid lunch. The drive home was somewhat serene as one felt you just got away from the world for a day or two.
We thank our heavenly father for new friendships made, old ones rekindled, the fellowship we enjoyed and the spiritual upliftment , encouragement and resolve we received.
