Delmarva Family Camp


I'll leave early tomorrow morning for Laurel, Delaware to preach at the Delmarva Family Camp. My friend Ray Bennett is in charge of this campmeeting. It was the place where I had my first "outside" preaching gig when I was a rookie preacher nearly 20 years ago. My son Luke and my father-in-law Ray will be going with me (we usually go to The Northmen, but will be heading east this year instead). When I lived in Virginia I drove up to Delmarva for at least a day nearly every year (and most years I had the opportunity to preach), but I haven't been there since we moved to Indiana. I'm looking to getting reacquainted with the folks from the Eastern Shore (for those of you who might not know, the Delmarva Peninsula is a sliver of land on the east coast, containing Delaware and parts of Maryland and Virginia -- DEL-MAR-VA).

Wow, they even have you speaking during the evening. You're the real deal. Be sure to get some monkey bread and scrapple.

Scrapple is great. An acquired taste, I guess. you just have to ignore the fact that scrapple contains the letters c-r-a-p.

Hey bro,

E.L. & I are riding up with Tony to hear you do some shouting. Let's hear a bell ringer!

Is there a physical address I could plug into Mapquest for the camp? I live in NJ, and if it isn't too far I could take the family either this next year or the year after. Thanks.

David,

Thanks! That's just 3 hours, 45 minutes from where we live here in NJ. Wow. We need to go next year.
