Well, dear ones, we are definitely in the midst of spiritual warfare – in our world today! Our whole land is under an horrific attack of the devil! We need to be in earnest prayer for our government and against the enemies that have been allowed to infiltrate our schools – our churches – and our homes. Let us call on the King of kings and Lord of lords and the Head of all principality and powers – that He deliver us from the snares and destruction of the Evil One. After all – he is already a defeated foe — by the person and work of our sovereign Savior!
In addition, we have developed a real immediate crisis where our staff for camps is concerned. Our staff training week (June 5-7) uncovered that our staff members were totally unprepared to be able to minister the Word of the Truth of the gospel to the campers. This means that we have been thrust back to shifting our whole approach to scheduling family camp days as a way to minister the gospel – until we can replace our staff with well taught and thoroughly trained male and female cabin and camp program leaders. Please be in prayer that our Lord God will lead us to – or draw unto us the quickened, awakened believers that we need in order to recover from this setback.
We have already contacted and scheduled five families that are now on the calendar to come out to Del-Haven for a block of time to experience what goes on all week in camp. Pray with us that these folks will come having ears to hear and eyes to see and hearts to receive and believe the gospel of the glory, only – of our Lord Jesus Christ.
This situation has never ever exactly happened before in our history. But, we know that the Lord is still on the throne and He is still completely in control! From Ps.50:15 He still says: “Call upon me in the day of trouble – I will deliver thee and thou shalt glorify me.” Praise His holy and faithful Name!
Also, due to the fact that we need to cut back on the rising expenses of life in this present world – we are planning to transition from sending our monthly newsletter by mail and sending it instead by email. If you want to keep receiving our newsletter, please send your name and email address to: email@example.com or go to www.campdelhaven.org/newsletter-signup to subscribe online. If you don’t have an email account or you rely on receiving our return addressed envelopes to facilitate your faithful, regular financial support, then please contact us about making other arrangements. Hopefully, this change will eliminate the rising printing costs and postal fees – which will really help us out.
We are saddened to report that Sheri DeSchepper felt like she had to resign from Del-Haven. She has for almost a decade now been involved with – and settled into – an active part of the ministry of Sycamore Hills Baptist Church. Please pray for her that she be led of the Lord in her continued service according to His perfect will and good pleasure.
We want you all to know how much we appreciate your support of us – along with all your prayers. We thank our Lord God for you — and we pray for you as well.
“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts
and be ready always to give an answer to every
man that asketh you a reason [or, a Word]
concerning the Hope that is in you
with meekness and fear.” [1Pe.3:15]
