MIDLANDS MISSION CENTER
Please see the attached communication from the First Presidency that was released today:
“Based on the continued risk for the spread of the virus, we are recommending the cancellation of camps, reunions, vacation Bible schools, and other extended large-group gatherings during July and August. Many mission centers already have done this. With the added challenges, risks, and cost to implement safety guidelines, it is advisable to cancel these events to protect the children, youth, and adults.”
We understand it is disappointing to see this after several months of planning. We have been monitoring the spread and severity of the virus literally every day in hopes that it would be contained and/or managed in such a way to allow us to proceed with summer camps. We delayed the camps from June to July to allow for more time to elapse hoping that would result in better containment. Unfortunately, the virus has continued to spread into and within our region.
Again, this is a difficult decision, but one that supports our primary objective to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all campers and staff.
In the peace of Jesus Christ,
Midlands Mission Center President Team
