GOOD NEWS! Volume 31 Number 8 SEPTEMBER 2014 "W elcome to the 2014 Old Orchard Beach Camp Meetings!" said Lt. Colonel Cheryl A. Maynor, territorial communica- tions secretary. To a capacity crowd in the Pavilion on Saturday evening, she said, "And if you're glad to be here, say 'amen!'" People who responded affi rmatively were indeed glad to have arrived in Maine safely amidst severe weather conditions in the area that had spawned a tornado that touched down in Boston, causing widespread damage, and on Monday, the cancellation of Point of Grace (a singing group) left stranded at an airport. Thankfully at the camp, fair weather prevailed most of the weekend as people descended on the resort town from the United States and from Canada to enjoy powerful preaching, thoughtful Bible studies, amazing Pier ministries, and some "fun in the sun." Maynor acknowledged the presence of Commissioners Barry C. and E. Sue Swanson, territorial leaders; Commission- ers Eva D. and Israel L. Gaither; Commis- sioners Carol A. and W. Todd Bassett; and Commissioner Nancy A. Moretz, all seated in the audience. Special guests for the weekend, Commissioners Dick and Vibeke Krom- menhoek, who are the territorial leaders of the Norway, Iceland, & the Faroes Ter- ritory, stood and offered an enthusiastic salute. They had just arrived following a 31–hour fl ight from Singapore. Also on hand were the Eastern Ter- ritorial Songsters, the Montclair Citadel continued on page 12 > > INSIDE Good News!
