Sunday, December 4

Tim Brennan, Tom Benevento, and Cliff Kindy woke to three inches of new snow covering the ground. (When the snow gets deep enough, the Camp has plans for igloos...) The team shoveled many area sidewalks.

Juanita Shenk joined Tom and Cliff for worship at Prairie Street Mennonite Church where Cliff and Tom shared about CPT in Iraq, the holding of the four CPTers in Iraq by the Sword of Righteousness group, and the upcoming events for Camp Casey in Elkhart. Juanita left early to share at Belmont Mennonite Church the activities planned for the coming week. A Prairie Street Sunday School class invited the three campers to respond to questions and suggestions. Aki, from the congregation, served a special Japanese dinner to which the campers were invited.

The afternoon filled with phone calls and visits. CPT is still responding to media interest because of the four missing CPTers in Iraq. The maintenance crew (Juanita and Cliff, since Tom had returned home to Goshen for awhile) repaired one of the large banners that had lost its north leg in the wind. Eight people had been part of the camp or visited throughout the day.
