Revival At BLESSED BERTRAND OF GARRIGUA Bertrand was born in south- ern France in the Comtat Ve- nalssin at the small town of Gar- rigues towards the end of the 1100s. Civil war was raging. Dis- sentions and heresies kept the Christian population in turmoil. As a young man, Bertrand at- tended a Cistercian monastery school taught by the nuns of this order, a common practice for educating the youth of this era. Despite the crusade against heretics in Midi, in southern France, the Cistercian Legate was assassinated in the year 1208. Seven years later Bertrand was ordained a Cistercian priest. Through his work he met and developed a lasting friendship with Saint Dominic of Spain. To- gether with Dominic, he and five other priests formed the nucleus of the Order of Preachers, later known as the Dominicans. For a time these men lived in the Pri- ory of Romanus in Toulouse.

The re- maining years of his life were spent preaching throughout this territory and, at the same time, establishing the Priory of Mar- seilles. In 1230, Blessed Bertrand died at the abbey of Bousqque, very near where he had attended school as a child. "l\venty-three years after his interment, the body of Blessed Bertrand was exhumed and found to be com- pletely intact. Almost another 300 years passed when the body was again exhumed for the pur- pose of relocating It to the Church of Frdres Precheurs d'Orange. Miraculously Blessed Bertrand's body was still incor- rupt. Unfortunately, during the religious wars of 1561 this church, along with the body of Bertrand, was totally destroyed by fire.

Two major activities common to both states are fishing and hunting, although In Alaska fishing is a prhnary industry while West Virginians enjoy it mostly as a hobby. For hunting, the wildlife in Alaska ranges from moose to grizzly bears to mountain goats. ~There are many moose within the city of Anchorage that eat people's shrubs and are tame enough that oftentimes people even feed them," commented Nanl~y Camp. The unusual wild- llfe, extensive outdoor sports, and the state's rugged natural beauty attracts enough travellers to make tourism Alaska's third leading source of income, the minister's wife said. After serving at Maranatha (which means Behold He Comes) Baptist Church in Anchorage for the past six years Mr Camp, a West Virginia native, remarked, "We enjoyed living there. We were satisfied living there. It's a really beautiful, picturesque state with the snow-covered mountains year 'round and an abundance of activities." In addi- tion, Mrs Camp admitted, "Being from West Virginia helped us to adjust to the environment of Alaska." ...... A Chaplain tn the Civil Air Pa- trol, the recently arrived pastor told of meeting many Eskimos and visiting remote villages rang- ing In size from 30 to 100 citi- zens. He also commented on the social problem that plagues the Eskimo culture presently, alco- holism. Apparently the extensive isolation and idleness produces a large percentage of residents with nothing to do for entertain- ment except to drink. One pro- gram being Implemented in vil- lages tn the Interior In an at- tempt to correct this problem Is "going dry" as in Prohibition days. Another method is in- creased transportation, such as planes, through the isolated parts of the state. In fact, the Camp's son Joel, 18, recently re- ceived his own pilot's license. The state with no snakes ob- viously does differ from West Virginia in other respects as well. The long summer days av- erage a temperature of 65 de- grees while the frigid winters have only about six hours of daylight. In addition, the popula- tion of the nation's largest state Is a mere half 'million with ap- proximately 250,000 of those liv- ing in thecity of Anchorage. Mr Camp, who was warmly welcomed by his new flock upon his arrival in July, was born at Alvon and graduated from White Sulphur Springs High School. Marriage in 1960 was followed four years later by the couple's graduation from Piedmont Bible College where he received a Bachelor of Religious Education and a Bachelor of Theology while Mrs Camp earned her Bachelor of Religious Education. Immanuel Baptist in Clifton Forge, Virginia became the Camp's home for the next twenty years until their departure for Alaska in 1984. The minister and his wife are the parents of five children. Re- bekah, Karyl, Andrew, Joel and Susanna. Andrew was killed in a hunting accident while the fam- ily still lived In Clifton Forge. The Camps also have one grand- daughter, Danlelle. Of their future plans at Greenbrier Valley Baptist, the couple cheerfully responded. "We want to minister to the people and to reach the many 'unchurched' and non-Christian in the area. We really want to see the church grow and go for- ward." Their biggest goal Is " . . . to serve the Lord and the people at church and we hope to have a good ministry among the young people." ii
