“Matthew” and Paul Teas sharing in a special
moment at Camp Barnabas.

In conjunction with the National Day of Prayer, the Sixth Annual Branson Mayors Prayer Breakfast will be held on Thursday, May 3, in Convention Hall at Celebration City from 7:00 am to 8:30 am. This widely attended community event is sponsored by the Branson chapter of CBMC a national organization dedicated to changing the lives of men and women in business, one person at a time.

The mayor of Branson, Raeanne Presley, will attend and give a welcoming message. The keynote speaker
for the event, is Paul Teas, the Executive Director and co-founder of Camp Barnabas which was founded to offer a normal childhood camping experience to children who might not otherwise get to experience one because of disease or disability. Teas said that he is excited about coming and sharing with the community of Branson because Camp Barnabas actually “started” in Branson.

“The kids at Camp Barnabas are no different from any other kids,” Teas pointed out. “They may walk or talk in a very unique way, or have to deal with some very serious life issues, but otherwise they are just as loving, wild, and crazy as any other kid on the planet.” Camp Barnabas, for at least a week, gives these very special kids a chance to just be like normal kids because for that week,” their “normal” is everyone’s normal.”

Over 500 are expected to join with others in the community as it unites in this special event to pray, fellowship, break bread together, and be inspired. Tickets for the event are $25.00 each or $175.00 for a table of eight prior to the day of the event. Tickets may also be purchased, on an as available basis, at the door the morning of the event for $27.50 each. For event, ticket information, or reservations please call 417-334-1772.
