Several years ago the ARKLA Conference Camporee was held at Fountainbleau State Park located across Lake Pontchartain from New Orleans. Friday was spent in New Orleans at the brand new (at the time) Aquarium of the Americas and the Audubon Zoo. A river boat took us from the aquarium to the zoo and back again. It was a great trip.

Sabbath Services were held in a beautiful area of the state park under the pine trees. The problem was that early Sabbath morning the wind was blowing hard enough that the sound of the wind blowing in the trees made it difficult to hear. We also had the added problem that the park is on one of the flight paths for the New Orleans airport and the jet noise was disruptive when a plane passed overhead. We gathered for Sabbath School and when opening prayer was said, the noise from wind suddenly stopped because of a shift in the force and direction of the wind. During the services the wind noise was not a problem and because of the shift in wind direction, the planes used a different flight path to the airport that was not over the Camporee.

I love it when I can recognize and enjoy the experience of watching the Lord work for his kids.
