The very first entry from our 2016 Camp Journal comes from our own Sheri DeSchepper – and it is a very fitting way for us to begin to relate to you some of the experiences of the summer:
06/06/16 : Here we are about to begin the 64th summer of camping ministry at Camp Del-
Haven! I’m so thankful to the Lord that He has allowed me to be a part of it; that He has called me to be here and established this work as a place to serve Him and share the Gospel. How many children? How many staff members have walked on this campground, swam in the lake or pool, made crafts, memorized Bible verses, sang Gospel choruses, and heard about the Lord Jesus who saves us from our sins and who loves us and has loved us with and everlasting love!?
I don’t know the number, and it doesn’t really matter. I pray the Lord will continue to use this place, this camp, as a platform of ministry of the Gospel to boys and girls and those staff members who work with them.
We will begin today at 10 AM preparing our hearts and setting up the program for this summer. I can’t wait to see how the Lord will help us to work out all the details of preparation for the boys and girls who will be coming this summer. May He be the One who leads us all the way for His Glory Alone! Thank you, Father!
