Well, dear friends and family in Christ – by the time you receive this month’s prayer/newsletter we will be much closer to Springtime (if not already in it). That is always a wonderful thing! Winter, it seems, is always pretty much a time of year that we are glad is over. Thank you, Lord.
We’re just a month away from beginning, once again, with our April Saturday work days in order to prepare for another season of camps. There is always much – physically speaking — that needs cleaning, fixing and straightening up before we start bringing the boys and girls onto the campground. Our Lord and Savior tells us to cast all our cares upon Him – because He cares for us – so please include all the maintenance tasks that need to be completed in your praying for us. Thank you.
Some potentially really good news is that a couple of churches have called and requested us to schedule a visit with them to speak to their young people’s classes about maybe helping us on staff for this summer. This open door to do that is, indeed, an answer to all our prayers! Thank you, Lord! Please continue to pray with us that we may successfully recruit some good candidates for both boy and girl helpers. It is so exciting – and so encouraging – when this sort of thing happens. Once again, Thank you, Lord!
Also, some responses through the internet have already come to us from campers who want to come to camp this year. Please – especially – remember to pray for all the children whom our Lord will send to Camp Del-Haven this year! Pray that He prepares their hearts to sit under sound teaching of the pure truth of the gospel of the glory, only, of the Lord Jesus Christ. All our efforts to “evangelize” the souls that the Savior sends to us – will be completely fruitless without the Holy Spirit of God going before us and directing our path; and it is He that leads His people to earnestly and prayerfully seek Him to do so. He does it all! This is why you all are so important to us! Once again – remember – God has orchestrated it so that this ministry was founded on prayer – and it has been sustained for 6+ decades by prayer! Thank you, dear ones, for your faithfulness in praying with us and for us. We love you…and we pray for you as well.
