‘Ol’ Time Religion’ at Campmeeting 2014

‘Ol’ Time Religion’ at Campmeeting 2014.


For 42 years Gwen and I have made a pilgrimage to Gilmour, ON, where Mt. Zion Church hosts their yearly summer Camp meeting.  This tranquil setting on the beautiful shore of Gunter Lake comes alive with laughter, love and the powerful presence of the Holy Spirit.  The camp has kept the spirit of old-time preaching, praying and singing, yet is on the cutting edge of what God is doing today.


This year I was blessed to share the ministry duties with dynamic speakers like Evangelists Chuck Price, Marie Miller, and others.  People come from miles around for spiritual refreshing and physical relaxation.  


Mt. Zion holds a special place in our hearts because of an experience Gwen and I had during our first visit in 1972.  Gwen had been experiencing troubling physical symptoms, and preliminary tests indicated the presence of a cancercous tumour in her body.  She was scheduled for surgery two weeks after this discovery, but in the interval, during our ministry time at Mt. Zion, the Lord miraculously met her, and when she returned for the surgery, the doctor confirmed that the tumour had disappeared and there was no sign of cancer in her body.  The supernatural encounter she experienced at Mt. Zion, combined with the special bond we have formed with these wonderful believers, has drawn us back every year, to give thanks to the Lord and encounter Him afresh. 


I am looking forward to another series of Camp Meeting services from July 24th to 27th at Living Waters Camp in Saskatoon, SK.  The ol’ time religion is alive and well in Canada!
