My wife and I have just returned from four days at Children’s Camp. The camp took place near Mt. Vernon, MO at the Baptist Hill Assembly. We served as camp cooks feeding a little more than 200 people children and adults each meal; three meals per day.
We don’t deal with teaspoons and tablespoon measurements; it’s more like in pounds and gallons. We served gravy with mashed potatoes and ham, gravy with mashed potatoes and chicken; and sausage gravy and biscuits one morning. It was my task to prepare the gravy. About 18 gallons of gravy was prepared in total.
Yesterday morning 6/30/11 we prepared about 35 – 40 pounds of pancake mix. There were about 10 of us working the kitchen, cafeteria; fixing drinks, preparing burgers, and cooking meat. We had a generous donor who donated over 500 pounds of Longhorn beef for the burgers and spaghetti. That’s great meat. That’s also a very generous donor and wife.
There were several professions of faith in Christ too. For that we are thankful, and blessed to have been a part of the work of God on Baptist Hill.
I was tired upon arriving home; but I took a walk with my dog, down to the creek and about. That was relaxing, and allowed me to stretch a bit. My back hurts a bit, but I am blessed.
