Lipscomb University developing missions camp
The Tennessean newspaper in Nashville, Tenn., reports:
It’s a different type of youth camp with stick houses and huts, simulating Third World villages and their culture.
Lipscomb University will build a missions camp this fall in Dickson County to simulate a Guatemalan village, where university students and faculty are doing mission work.
The camp is for Middle Tennessee middle school and high school students who will learn how the villagers eat, sleep and interact in Ulpan Valley in Guatemala.
“There is nothing advanced, zero economic stability,” said Kristopher Hatchell, Lipscomb’s director of missions and external affairs. “But it’s beautiful land, beautiful people and a beautiful culture.”

FeedbackSomebody needs to wake up to the 21st Century!
Most missionaries are working in places with cellphones, emails, etc. South Afrca, last month, was my 20th country to teach in. We lived 10 years in two of them.ken hargesheimerJune, 25 2011
