A Special Message and Appeal for the Anderson Camp Property:
by Webmaster on 8/21/14

I want to take this opportunity to thank all of our friends of the Pilgrim Holiness Camp for the spiritual and financial support that you have given over the years. From our very beginning, it has been my conviction that our Pilgrim people needed to have a place to call "home". We continue to have many reports of precious memories of events at the old Anderson Camp. 


A gentleman representing an entity, contacted me inquiring how much we owed on the grounds and what the interest rates were. We shared with him that we had two loans to an institution and one loan to a family trust. Interest rates were from 6% to 7%. The gentleman said he thought his group could help us. In the weeks that followed, the result was a consolidation loan of $430,000.00 with payments of $3,180.66 @ 4% interest for 15 years. This is saving us thousands of dollars.


Since our Camp, over $4500.00 has come in for the Anderson Camp Ground which will be doubled because of the above matching funds commitment. The Lima, Ohio Pilgrim's children raised well over a thousand dollars during their VBS! 

Pastors, Delegates, members and friends of the Pilgrim Holiness Camp - Please find ways to help us as quickly as you can. Remember, your gift will be doubled! Will you join Sister Southerland and I in helping us achieve this goal?

During a recent visit to one of our first organized Conference churches, upon inquiring about the Camp Ground development progress, an old saint burst into tears saying "I'm afraid I'm going to die before we have our first camp on the new grounds in Anderson." Let's see the Lord hasten the day of our first camp on the property thru our giving and His blessing.  

Thank You,
Rev. James A. Southerland, Sr. 

Monday Morning Report from the Conference President:

Congratulations to Rev. and Mrs. Doug Cox, and the Milltown Pilgrims!!

We met with Doug and Pam Cox Saturday afternoon Oct. 26th over dinner at Cracker Barrell in Corydon, IN. It was a wonderful time of fellowship. Their joy about pastoring the Milltown/Marengo, PHC is contagious. They were excited about "Friend Day" the next day. 

I received a text message from Bro. Doug on Sunday afternoon saying that they had broken their all time attendance record with 73 in attendance! Praise the Lord for this wonderful report and reward for a lot of praying and hard work. Congratulations to our friends at Milltown. We rejoice with you.

A special baby dedication Sunday morning.

We traveled to Lexington, Ky Sunday morning Oct. 26th to visit our Pilgrims and dedicate Chris and Constance Dewhurst's little son Carson. We shared some thoughts about how the Lord told Noah to build an ark. God has made provision for the family and the church family to be part of an ark of safety for the children to be brought up in.  Carson's nurses were present along with Constance's parents. There was a good spirit and an excellent dinner was enjoyed by all at the parsonage after the service. Let us continue to pray for the Dewhust family. Bro. Chris still does not have a job. I want to personally thank our Pilgrim family and friends for sending them many timely gifts and offerings. 

James A. Southerland, Sr.
