Rod Meredith Heading To Ohio Summer Camp

LCG is reporting:

Late this afternoon, Dr. Douglas Winnail reported that the day went well for the youth at the Ohio Living Youth Camp.  The kids are sobered by yesterday’s tragic accident but are coping well.  Dr. Winnail gave the youth spiritual support today when he took the Christian Living Class.  The ministry has provided individual counseling as needed and group counseling in each dorm.

Dr. Meredith, Mr. Ames and the headquarters team has been in close contact with LYC leadership to support our campers and those affected however we can, and additional ministry is traveling to the camp in the next two days, including Dr. Roderick Meredith who will arrive at the camp on Wednesday.  Dr. Meredith has sent a letter to all the Church members today.
Camp leadership anticipates that camp will continue through its planned term.  Please continue to pray for the campers, for the staff and for the Montgomery family.
