Today in the PC-USA Mission Yearbook

The Mission Yearbook for Prayer and Study is a daily devotional with 365 inspiring mission stories that come from next door and all across the globe. It inspires thousands of Presbyterians daily as they uphold the mission of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) in intercessory prayer. The stories in the 2013 Mission Yearbook were gathered around the question of Jesus to his disciples, “How many loaves have you?” from Mark 6:38. The book is filled with stories of God’s abundance in the face of overwhelming needs and a scarcity of resources.

Today in the Mission Yearbook: June 26, 2013

PRESBYTERY OF ST. ANDREW, MISSISSIPPI - Hopewell Camp and Conference Center, the camp facility of the Presbytery of St. Andrew in northern Mississippi, is much like many other presbytery camps: it provides summer camp opportunities for children and hosts retreats for congregations, the presbytery’s youth, and others.

But for many years, Camp Hopewell has also played a vital role in the presbytery’s mission strategy. It was the original volunteer training facility for Living Waters for the World, a ministry of the Synod of Living Waters that has successfully installed water purification systems in 24 countries around the world. It has also held camps for Christians Living with Cancer and other groups.
