Thank you for your prayers and support of Acadian Baptist Center over the years. As many of you know, my wife Shannon is a registered nurse and contracted COVID-19 back in March. She was pretty sick but didn’t require hospitalization and has had a good recovery and has returned to work. I had to quarantine for two weeks and thankfully never developed symptoms and am back at ABC. We are extremely grateful and humbled that God has brought us through this ordeal.

Another ordeal many businesses and almost all camp and retreat centers are facing is the cancelation of  at least 2 months of retreats and possibly more. We have cut all of our expenses down to the minimum and are concentrating on keeping up the facilities and finishing the worship center. ABC receives close to 80% of our budget from camps and retreats. We are trusting God to see us through this pandemic. Because of your relationship with ABC, I am asking you to consider a one-time gift or monthly pledge to help us get past this time in our history.

   I remember how in 2005 after Katrina, our board stepped out in faith to help people and closed the camp down for several months to minister to those affected. God blessed us with donations to fill the gap. God has used ABC to reach many for Christ, including close to 10,000 salvations since its beginning in 1975. It is our prayer that God will use this world crisis to bring many to a saving relationship with Him.  If you feel led to give, you can mail a check to ABC or give though abccamp.com or our Facebook page (facebook.com/abccamp).  Most importantly lift ABC in prayer as we continue to serve Him together.

   May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. – Romans 15:13

In Christ,

James Newsom,
Director

ABC this past year had over 10,000 children, youth, women, and men step onto the grounds desiring God’s Spirit to touch their lives in a special way.  These dear souls have attended Spark and Fuego camps, ACTS retreats, couples’, men’s, father and son, and women’s retreats, Campers On Mission and SOWER weeks, and many other events.
