LAMP providing summer activities in Thompson for 19th consecutive year

The Lutheran Association of Missionaries and Pilots (LAMP) is hosting their annual morning Bible school at St. James the Apostle Anglican Church until July 12.

Every day this week, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., LAMP volunteers will be organizing a variety of activities for local children, like arts and crafts, that tie into specific sections of the Bible.

On Monday, for example, the kids were tasked with making artificial flowers out of recyclable material to parallel the story of Genesis.

Volunteer Karen Spilde said her team’s been travelling from Moorhead, Minnesota to Thompson for 19 years now to put this weeklong event together. 

“Because we’ve been coming here for so many years we get to see some old friends that we know and see some of the kids grow up,” she said. “But we always meet some new ones too and we really enjoy the community and the people here.”

Spilde went on to say their school is free of charge and that anybody in town is welcome to attend, regardless of religious denomination.
