A Wonderful Easter Morning at Morrison Park

A group of about fifty people gathered at the Old Morrison Park Camp Meeting site near Glasgow Kentucky to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord in an outside worship service. The group gathered at 6 a.m. and was treated to a beautiful sunrise and a glorious Easter morning. After the service, many gathered together for fellowship and refreshments in the Morrison Library cabin. It was a beautiful, wonderful morning, and we are thankful to all who attended.

Morrison Park Camp Meeting Association, has been involved in the restoration of the old Morrison Park Holiness Camp, founded by Henry Clay Morrison  for almost four years. In that time we have had a lot of wonderful help and support, but none has equaled the amount of support given to us by Carl and Mary Lou Jackson of Louisville Ky. To date the couple has given  a record $3,120.00 . When we we began this project we prayed for God's help and leadership. It was very plain to us, our Lord wanted the work done, and somehow we knew he would supply and send the special people to see that it would be accomplished. We had no idea who those people would be, but the Lord surely sent us some angels. Carl and Mary Lou do not wish any attention, or special recognition, they just simply feel led by the Lord to support this restoration, knowing it is his will. We at Morrison Park are humbled at the faith and trust they have placed in us, but we have been more at awe in the great faith we have seen them have in he Lord and following his wonderful spirit of leadership in this restoration matter. Because of their generosity, we have been able to enter into large projects such as new plumbing, a new septic system, and the renovation of the restroom building itself. All of these things are essential to the success of the park. Simply, they have made so many things possible, that otherwise would not be done. We cannot say thank you enough to Carl and Mary Lou. You are indeed two Godly Angels sent our way, and we praise God for all you have done for us. Sincerely, Gary Bewley, Pres. Morrison Park Camp Association.

Morrison Park Wins Award

The Glasgow- Barren County Chamber of Commerce, awarded Morrison Park President, Gary Bewley, Outstanding Citizen of the Year for 2013 last night at its annual award banquet and dinner. The award, of course, stems from all the hard work that has been done to restore the Historic Holiness Camp Meeting ground, established here by Rev. Henry Clay Morrison in 1900. While Bewley is very excited and honored by the award, he realizes, the award goes far beyond him to everyone who has donated their time, hard work, money, and support to the project. It is truly an award for Morrison Park. We pray this notoriety will bring further attention to the value and needs of the park, and will provide a greater amount of publicity and support for all we, under God's direction, are seeking to achieve. Thank the Lord for this recognition for Morrison Park, and may it help bring about good fruits that will be for His honor and glory. Please continue to pray for us at Morrison Park.

The South Central Kentucky Historical & Genealogical Society provides funds for the Henry Clay Morrison / Morrison Park Historical Marker

Sandi Gorin , President of The South Central Kentucky Historical and Genealogical Society Inc. presents me with a check for  $2,500.00 to pay the entire cost of a Kentucky Historical Marker to be placed roadside at Morrison Park Holiness Camp Meeting Grounds  on Hwy 63 about 5 miles south east of Glasgow Kentucky. The historical marker will focus on the great Henry Clay Morrison who grew up on this ground and went on to become one of the nations most famed ministers. It also focuses on the historic Holiness Camp Meeting he established here on his ancestral farm in 1900. The annual revival at the park drew enormous numbers each year. The park has been under restoration for over three years. We at the park, have always felt the need for an historical marker, but realized the money we had, had to be spent for repairs to the park itself. After much prayer, we felt the Lord leading us to make a leap of faith, and prior to the October 1, 2013 deadline, prepared an application to the Ky historical Society who approves or rejects each request. We were so excited when the marker was approved, but we were in the dark about just how the cost would be paid. The Lord surely opened the door when the local historical Society contacted us, and asked questions as to what we were doing and how they could help. It was just unbelievable, but that is how our Lord works. It will mean so much to preserve the history and the importance of the park for generations to come. God bless, Sandi, and all the wonderful folks of the society for giving us their unanimous support in this matter. We can never say thank you enough.  We also praise our wonderful savior, who continues to lead, guide, and bless, as we seek his will in this restoration endeavor. Please pray for us, and the success of the park. God Bless, Gary Bewley.

Henry Clay Morrison on current cover of Traces

The new Traces publication for Winter 2013 has Henry Clay Morrison on the front cover. Included is an article which focuses on the significance of Morrison in his day, as one of the nation's greatest and most popular ministers. It also provides an update on the workings at Morrison Park as it continues it's renovation.
   The Christmas candlelight service at Morrison Park was very wonderful with  good attendance. Work continues on the restroom building and the continued clearing of the grounds. We are a bit behind schedule on the restroom, but winter came fast, and there was more work to be done than I had realized, however; everything is going fine. We look forward to so much being done over the winter months, Lord willing. Winter is a wonderful time to clear the growth while it is killed down. As always, please pray for our efforts, and help us if you can. Respectfully , Gary Bewley  , President, Morrison Park Camp Association.
