When beautiful furniture is built, there is always a starting point and this is what we started with to make 60 bunk beds. And this is the finished product built to last many years at the Riverbend Baptist Camp.
Every work day starts with prayer for our friends, families, camp personnel and guests and especially our safety. Eugene Esters and Gayle Berry discussing work over a bed post.
