Praise the Lord!  The number of participants in the 2018 COCM family camp has reached a record of 203, including children and adolescents. Although this presented a huge challenge for the teachers, they still praise the Lord for the opportunity to bring these children to Jesus.  Many friends are willing to accept Christ and continue to learn His words.  Thank God for bringing all participants back to their homes safely
