"Christ is the Answer" by Elder Jeff Jordan October 21 to 24, 2010 by David Trexler
DEAR was held at Camp Blue Ridge in Montebello, VA from October 21 to 24, 2010. The guest speaker of the four-part series was Pastor Jeff Jordan presenting—Christ Is the Answer. His messages were well received by over 50 campers. On Friday night the communion service was conducted by Elder Paul Kelly. The weather was perfect for the camp meeting in the autumn setting with colorful foliage decorating the area.
Deaf Young Adults for Christ (DYAC) gathered there as they had their own program which included our lay training workshop with Elder Paul Kelly and Elder David M. Trexler. The parliamentary workshop was given by Elder Kelly and they had a good mock board meeting that gave 16 young Deaf adults more conﬁdence and experience in running the meeting effectively.
The campers came from many different states such as Washington, Oregon, Massachusetts, New York, Maryland, Virginia, Washington D.C. Pennsylvania, California, and West Virginia. They returned to their homes spiritually and emotionally refreshed.
