We have been in camping ministry most of our married lives, with Perry being the Director of 2 Christian church camps in Pennsylvania and Idaho. In 2018, we learned about the ministry of Be One Together from their Board Chaplain, Lance Eisele, and his wife, Karen. We met with Mike and Mary Pinkerton and decided to become part of the ministry of Be One Together in November 2018. In the fall of 2019, we had the opportunity to attend the B1-2G conference in Pennsylvania and enjoyed being with everyone. We left the conference with joy and so much confirmation we were with a great ministry! Mike and Mary are wonderful leaders with their love for the Lord, commitment to the ministry, knowledge and wisdom, and understanding that family is important, and on top of that, they like to have fun!
We were given a plaque at the conference with the verse:
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10
That verse is perfect for B1-2G missionaries and us as we minister in various locations and various ways in the United States and Mexico, including Vacation Bible School, camping ministry, pulpit supply, construction, 1-1 mentoring, elderly help, visitation, and other things that He brings our way. The Pinkertons have been supportive in our many adventures. We are so thankful for Mike and Mary, our West Coast Ministry Liaisons, David and Shari Oberg, the Board members, Administration, and the many missionaries we serve the Lord with across the world!
Happy 10th Anniversary!
Perry and Sandy
