NOMADS Recognized for 50+ Projects


At the Annual Meeting, we recognized the outstanding service of NOMADS who have completed 50 or more projects. Those reaching this goal were: Arlin and Sue Kiel, George and Terry Lair, Jack and Arlene Fenn, Bob and JoAnn Blanchette, Bill and Carolyn Mitchell, and Rod and Janie Reeder. These are some thoughts about NOMADS and projects that they shared with us:

“The best memories we have are of the people we have met along the journey-both fellow NOMADS and the persons we have been privileged to serve.”
“We love the thought of helping to create a place for youth to come and develop a relationship with the Lord.”
“We have done NOMADS work all over the U.S. and loved every minute of it. Being NOMADS is our way of serving God by serving others.”
“We have met literally hundreds of people, been to places that were just names on a map and been part of things we could never have imagined.”
After a power outage in Louisiana, Camp Lake Stephens in Mississippi was asked to house the SLU football team. “Housing them was no problem, however the regular camp cooks had Monday-Friday jobs during the school year. The planned work was put on hold and NOMADS were drafted to become Chefs for the week.” Just an example of the flexibility of NOMADS!
