Pines Bible Camp to rebuild after fatal storm

The Pines Bible Camp in Grand Forks, B.C., has a difficult task ahead.

It's faced with rebuilding physically and spiritually after one of their campers, an 11-year-old boy, was killed in a violent windstorm over the weekend.

The storm snapped mature trees below the half-way mark.

You can see video footage of the aftermath on our Facebook page, taken by Jonathan Christian. He was scheduled to speak at the camp, and was on his way back to Pines Bible Camp when the winds picked up.
