“We have emphasized to our brigadiers who are leading Camp-O-Rama this year that learning and growing through the process is much more important than the final outcome.  We pray for a great Camp-O-Rama, but more importantly we pray that everyone who attends grows in their knowledge of God and that Christ's love compels them to share that knowledge with others. Please join me in praying for your Battalion and everyone that is going.”  Mike Sherbert, Capt. 7117
