August marked AOI’s 25th year of doing Family Mountain Adventures at Camp Redcloud. A lot of people think that AOI owns or runs Redcloud, but we are totally separate ministries. We have just had a good and long association with Redcloud.
To help celebrate the 25th anniversary camp in cooperation with Redcloud, our staff surprised Mary Jo & I by having Redcloud bake a special anniversary cake and then, at the variety show, sang a song with special lyrics they wrote. The tune of the song was from a country western style song that Buddy Davis sings called “I Don’t Believe in Evolution.” During the song, they held up caricatures drawn by our volunteer Chelleston of Mary Jo & I.
It was a fun time, and we thank our staff and volunteers, and the cake bakers/decorators who took a lot of time putting it all together. Here are the lyrics and some photos of the celebration.
I believe that God above created Redcloud too,
So praise His name for Mary Jo,
Give credit for Dave too!
I don’t believe in Evolution,I know AOI is true!
I like to canoe out in the pond
And swing down from a pole
Climbing biking, hiking (pause)
Is all I like to do.
Redcloud pro-vides everything
In six days we are through
So the Texas heat is just a dud
But Red cloud’s just for you (Chorus)
Fly fishing from the pond,
But Mary Jo would rather hike
To the chapel and beyond.
Rich will teach deep into the night,
For even one or two
But Mr. Dave is the only Nut…
That I’m going to listen to! (Chorus)(Chorus)
