God is Able

     It is already here! This Sunday we officially begin the 48th annual Praise Camp, Singing School! For many of us this year is special. The minister here in 1966 when Singing School started was T.J. Finley. Many questions about how it would work out were unanswered at the start of that first school 47 years ago. Here we are, still singing, still praising God. Brother Finley was quoted after that first year, “God willing, we’ll do it again next year.” I know this, God must have been willing!

     If you read the history of the school you get the idea no one really knew what to expect that first year. Would the church be able to continue, would the students keep on coming year after year? Well, today we know the answer to that question. God was not only willing, Our God is Able!

     What does the future hold for Haskell Praise Camp? Who knows? I know this; no one understands the impact this school has had for the past 47 years.  I know those attending will remember this week the rest of their lives. Friendships that will last for eternity are started here. Marriage relationships, even proposals have blossomed here at singing school. I know worship and praise for those here will never be the same. And I know this, Our God is Able!

     The theme song this year, Our God is Able fits this year’s version of singing school

God Is Able

He Will Never Fail

He Is Almighty God

Greater Than All We Seek

Greater Than All We Ask

He Has Done Great Things

Lifted Up He Defeated the Grave

Raised To Life Our God Is Able

In His Name We Overcome

For The Lord Our God Is Able!

    You are invited to our closing program July 12th at 6:30pm in the main auditorium.

     So many questions 47 years ago, and Brother Finley’s answer was always, “We can work it out.” With God’s hand, things have worked out for 48 years. This year when we sing “God is Able” I will think about so many of the things our God has done and is able to do. He will never fail; He is Almighty God, in His Name we overcome. For the Lord our God is able!

   Please say a prayer for T.J. Finley, he is at his home in Branson MO. receiving hospice care.

I love you all.
