The 12th annual Southern Deaf Camp Meeting took place at the beautiful Cohutta Springs Conference Center in north Georgia August 9-13, 2017. The attendees were blessed to have Alan Meis from Battle Creek, Michigan, and Esther Doss, from Mountain View, Arkansas, as guest speakers. In addition to the morning and evening adult meetings, children and teens programs were led by Anissa Michalek, from Cleveland, Tennessee, and Jaycee Robinson, from Lawrenceville, Georgia. 

A total of 88 people came to camp meeting this year. They were spiritually uplifted and had a wonderful time fellowshipping and observing God in nature. The kids really enjoyed the water activities including rocket boating, blobbing, and swimming. 


A communion service and testimonials were favorite events the attendees participated in. A baptismal service was performed after the divine hour for Leonardo Orellana of Locust Grove, Georgia, a teenager who surrendered his life to Jesus. God be praised! 

Next year’s camp meeting will take place August 8-12, 2018.  For those who couldn’t attend Southern Deaf Camp Meeting in 2017, the sermon series of Alan Meis and Esther Doss are posted at the Southern Deaf Fellowship website.
