Ed Winslow Stopped By Church
Last Sunday, Ed Winslow spoke in both of the Burmese services about the upcoming children’s camp. He asked parents to consider sending their children to church camp for one week. Last year we had about 15 campers and two young adult counselors go from our church. (In fact the current picture at the top of this blog is the day we loaded up the kids and took them to camp.)
Over the years I have seen a pattern of God doing a great work of spiritual harvest at church camps. Several of our High Point Burmese children accepted Jesus as their personal Savior while attending camp. Under the leadership of Jerry Farlow the Outreach Sunday school class of First Wesleyan has raised some scholarship money to help children go to camp. Our church camp is called Victory Mountain and it is owned by the North Carolina East District of the Wesleyan Church.
Ed Winslow is a businessman in our church who has a key ministry with children, teaching them in Sunday School throughout the year and organizing them to attend camp. He serves on the board of the camp and as a senior camp counselor each year. Ed and his wife Carolyn have assisted with Burmese transportation to church. From time to time Ed had has passed along contacts who have contributed cars and electric wheel chairs as donations to the church and subsequent use by the Burmese.
