Testimony: Campmeeting at South Union is like coming home to us. Pat and I had our honeymoon here in 1990. We have the sweetest friends here. We still miss all the ones that have gone on to be with Jesus. We will have another big Campmeeting one day in heaven when we all get there. We will carry on our Campmeeting as long as we are able; that's what our loved ones would want us to do. I, Doris McWhorter Cohea Terry, came to Campmeeting when I was 11 years old (in 1934), riding in the back of a wagon from Chester. The road was behind the Casey Smith tent then. I have always loved this place. Pat loves it too. We had lovely services this year. Pat & Doris Terry

Testimony: I am 57 years old and I have been attending South Union Campmeeting all my life. My parents, Will and Lillie Belle Liddell, built a tent in 1946. To me, this place is truly Holy Ground.

Testimony: I have attended campmeeting for only six years but I feel such a part of the 130 years here at South Union. So many things are special here, it is hard to even begin to list them. The open-air setting with the sounds of the birds and crickets. The wind blowing in the trees and through the arbor, the dew on the grass in the early morning, the sun as it goes behind the trees - all these things make campmeeting special.
The fellowship is wonderful. The talk of "old times" and the way times have changed is a part of every gathering. It makes me long for a simpler, slower way of life. And campmeeting has a way of slowing me down to a pace where I feel I have time to listen for  a word from God. I don't listen for the phone to ring, but I listen to the message from Him. Time is a gift from God and I cherish the time I spend in renewal at South Union. May God bless the future of this place as it continues to be a place of worship and praise. Beverly Dodd

Testimony:  The love I have for this place! I call it God's country for it is truly Holy Ground - See you next time! Patti & Paul Ledford

Testimony: South Union Campmeeting is a fun-filled holy experience. Words cannot truly describe how special you feel and how close to God you can get. Everyone should have the pleasure of attending Campmeeting. You would never miss another one if you took the time to attend just one. Love in Jesus Christ our Savior - Rachel Fulce.
