    SPWIISH BIBLE CAMPS AT CEDARS ..IHRSE

    BAPTISMS

    The second

    week of July

    was Spanish Touth Omp

    at Cedars with

    about 125 young people

    from

    a doaen or more villages. Adiolts came in for the evening services bidnging kttend-

    ance up to

    around

    150 in the evenings.

    The

    Northrups rejoiced in that both camps were

    planned, directed and taught by the Mexican people. Jim Claire

    awakened

    everyone by

    playing reveille on

    his

    trun^jet,.his truij? et specials

    were much

    nore appreciated

    in

    the

    evening

    se rv ices

    Tile

    fourth

    week of July was SPANISH FAI^HLY

    CAl IP

    Cancers ranged from grandparents to

    nursing babies, : .9 Summer Corpsmen got a real workout in this

    camp

    since we really had

    about

    three camps in one. Both caries now have their own administration and are

    making

    plans to con^letely finance both camps next year. To some this

    may

    look

    like

    a l i t t le

    step but as

    far

    as

    we

    missionaries are concerned

    i t

    is

    a big leap fon^ard

    in

    faith.
