Praises and Prayer Requests
Dear friends and family in Christ – the Lord is indeed demonstrating the truth unto us of Eph.3:20 which text declares: “Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think – according to the power that worketh in us – unto Him be glory…” The work being accomplished here at Del-Haven has all of us rejoicing in the Spirit and praising God for His wonderful supply – and the wonderful progress that is unfolding right before our eyes. Please be praying with us and giving thanks to the Lord for what He is doing – and at the same time — please seek from Him the protection that only He can give. For I know that the principalities and powers of the Evil One are outraged at what our sovereign Lord is doing for us. And, please be praying for God’s protection and rich blessings upon all the men who have labored so faithfully on our kitchen and the shower house and restrooms. They are not going to be looked upon favorably by the Adversary either! We need to be constantly fulfilling the biblical exhortation for us to pray for one another. May the Lord cause us to do so! By the way, we now the bottom cabinets in place and they need to be painted. If you know of anyone who has experience spray painting – I am told there is about half a day’s job getting these cabinets painted. Please pray with us for this.
We also have come to have a need for another refrigerator. Please be in prayer concerning this. If any of you know of a source of provision for this need – please give us a call: (816) 690-8465.
Yet another wonderful testimony of our Lord’s presence among us is in the provision of a brush hog mower. Wow! What timing! I am seeing the appearing of new grass just starting to come up. It won’t be long before it will spring forth and get ahead of me! It won’t be long and I will need to begin my season long pursuit at keeping the campground trimmed and ready for the children the Lord will be sending our way to hear the wonderful news of His gospel message.
Oh dear friends, please do not forget to be praying for all the children. Pray for all the repeaters that keep coming back to camp year after year. And, also, pray for the new campers that for the first time will set foot on Del-Haven soil. And, as always, please remember to be in prayer for all those who will be on our staff. There is always a turnover on our staff. We are always on the lookout for men and women who have a real desire to serve the Lord helping to reach children for the glory of Christ. These are the special ones that are on the front line of the spiritual battle that will be waged and won against the powers of darkness. This is the way of life at Camp Del-Haven. Praise the Name of the Lord – He is the Head of all principalities and powers! Our conquering Christ will prevail over and against all our foes! He always wins!
