In February, Brother YJ, was invited to put on a Freedom Conference in Mescalero, NM. Our team was able to stay in a lodge owned by members of First Baptist Ruidoso. There were 20 people who attended on the first evening in the tiny building. Many decisions were made before and after the service. The Freedom Conference is designed to help people overcome life issues through God’s Word - it is a very powerful event.

This summer our Youth attended camp at Zephyr in Sandia, Texas. A group of 15 teens and adults got to experience camp, where they grew in a deeper relationship with Christ and each other. Then the Youth went on a Mission Trip to Houston. They spent a week ministering to the homeless and preparing meals. It was such an incredible time for each of them and very eye-opening for all who were able to attend. Barkley also took the kids on several local trips to witness and have a little fun as well.
