GAME DAY - July 5, 2007
Approximately 35 youths registered and adults of all
ages stopped by to watch the fun at Saturday’s Game Day at Wayne
It was exciting for those who watched Pastor Greg
Swisher of First Baptist Church go over the obstacle course. There was
almost a casualty when he rolled on Luke Moore.
The afternoon ended with lots of music by the UTH band
and a brief period of devotion and prayer. Addresses were exchanged and
promises made to get together again.
The group did a good job of cleaning up scraps of paper
from the field and even swept the picnic pavilion. Then they moved on to
homes for brief showers and started the six-hour trip South. A flat
tire, vehicle problems and an empty gas tank did not dampen their
feelings about what was accomplished. They promised to keep in touch and
remember our community in their prayers. They also asked for long-term
prayers for the town of Peytonia.
Thank you, Dudley Shoals, we love you!

Thank you, Grantsville!
Thank you, First Baptist Church of Grantsville, for
allowing us to come to your community and having “Game Day” at Wayne
Underwood Field on Saturday, June 30.
From the time we came into town, we were made to feel
welcome. First Baptist so graciously allowed us to stay in the church
and the men of the church prepared a wonderful breakfast for us on
Saturday morning. Dudley Shoals Baptist Church Youth exists to reach
students with the life changing message of Christ, to help students make
life commitments that mature their faith, and to challenge students to
discover and carry out God’s commission for their lives.
This was the purpose of the mission trip to Peytona and
Grantsville last week. We had a great time sharing our faith through
games, music, food and just good old fashioned fun. Our stay in
Grantsville was very touching and we could see the Holy Spirit working
through us and we were also equally blessed by your community.
We also appreciate those who opened their homes to us
for showers and to all who helped in any way. You have a wonderful
community and we hope to come again next year.
