Well, dear friends and family in Christ, here we are in the midst of the month of May, 2021 – and we are still under the prevailing regime of fear and governmental restraint. Please continue to pray with us – and for us – in regards to our desire and ability to minister the everlasting gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ — here at Camp Del-Haven. While we are still hopeful that our Lord will open the door for us to be able to hold some regular camp sessions – as we have done over the last six decades – it appears that what we will have to do – is start our season out by inviting whole families out for a day of regular weekly camp activities to be experienced by them – all in one day. This is what we did last year – and the Lord blessed us with His presence in our times with each one of the different families that positively responded to our invitations. Pray that this will once again be well received – and that the Lord will once again be glorified – in our ministering the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to whole families.
We have been greatly encouraged by how the Lord has manifested His sustaining of us through your continued prayerful support in every way. The last part of the month of April we had a record work day where three different groups of young men converged onto Del-Haven grounds and cleaned up the whole camp. It was monumental – to say the least! I know we had in excess of over 25 helpers that attacked some of the most difficult tasks of cleanup that we had – and — they did a super job! I have been praying for a long while that God would send us some young men to help us – not only with work that is taylor made for strong young males to accomplish – but also to potentially become interested in serving Him in the camps where needed! I had more than one conversation with the fellas that showed up to work about doing just that. Please remember to seek the Lord’s will in this regard when you pray for Del-Haven. Thank you in advance for doing so.
And, when you pray – please remember to pray for all the boys and girls that have already been sent by the Lord through our camp program. All the ones that looked forward to coming to camp last year, but were prevented from doing so because of the threat of the pandemic. This includes both camper and staff helper alike. Don’t forget – we are experiencing physical ramifications of a spiritual battle with an enemy that targets souls! Our Lord Jesus, Himself, said from Jn.6:38-39: “For I came down from heaven – not do mine own will – but the will of Him that sent me. (39) And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me – that of all which He hath given me – I should lose nothing – but should raise it up again at the last day!” This means – that Satan cannot Win! PTL!
“For we through the Spirit – wait for the hope of Righteousness by faith. [Gal.5:5]
