There are many God stories that have occurred this past year. One of our favorites concerns a two-hour fire rated wall that Tim Stanley, our Maintenance/Project Supervisor was working to complete. Tim had a question about the electrical but Perry was unable to answer it; and suggested Tim call James Sampson (one of our fantastic volunteers) to see if he could help.       

Perry left and returned a couple of hours later to find James working with Tim. Perry was surprised that James could have arrived so quickly. But Tim had not had a chance to call James. James’ RV was at the camp for him to use when he volunteered. He came to pick up the RV for guests he was entertaining over the weekend. He just “happened” to come at the exact time we needed him.  And that’s just the way God works!

Nearing Minder Makeover completion, we plan to focus on smaller projects throughout the campus which we have had to defer during Minder Makeover. We are trusting the Lord to continue to supply the funds for these projects. We are praying for 250 new Dining Room chairs. The old heavy ones we have now may damage our new floor. The new chairs we are looking at purchasing are $26 each including shipping. Below is a picture of the ones we will be purchasing. Why not consider buying one or more for the camp and praying with us for God’s supply?

We wish you a Merry Christmas and blessings to you and your families in the upcoming year.
