The Atmore Lions Club met August 3 in the Mayson Auditorium of Atmore Community Hospital.
In the absence of the president, Vice President Lion Dr. Kevin Garrett presided. Following the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag, Lion Joyce Petty gave the invocation. Lion Kevin recognized Madeline Kent and Lena Hardy as visitors. Business included a report of participation at Camp Seale Harris where over 200 were fed as well as a monetary donation presented to the camp.
Jennifer Sanders introduced Madeline Kent as the speaker. Madeline told of her four years adventures in Haiti and Cambodia where she has worked as a missionary, with most of those years being in Cambodia. Lions were uplifted to see the passion and devotion to spreading the word of Jesus through the ministry of this young woman. A special time following the program was when all present joined in prayer for Madeline’s future, safety, and success in her mission.
