Camp Barnabus – Purdy, Missouri
Kim stopped by Camp Barnabus on Sunday, June 16, 2019, and was so overwhelmed with the wonderful outreach provided that we wanted to share this amazing ministry with you. There are over 2,000 campers of all ages that attend the camp all summer long. Kim was impressed by the staff’s dedication and the campers joyful spirits. “The mission and ministry that happens all summer makes my soul want to stay in this place of joy!” ~Kimberly Faith
