Well, dear ones, our being led of the Lord to return to a full schedule of camps is proving to be a great thing indeed! We have had some wonderful moments once again. Wonderful – because we have witnessed the very presence and moving of the Spirit of God. Please continue to pray for our staff and, of course, our campers. This is an ever ongoing need for us in this ministry. While this sinful world continues – the Spiritual Warfare does also continue to rage all around us. But Praise the Lord we walk through all the trials and temptations – in His all glorious and all victorious and all overcoming Grace!
We have had a couple of unexpected and expensive obstacles that we needed to immediately address. Our commercial window unit air conditioner in our kitchen wore out. And, in the heat wave we have been experiencing – we had to search for another one in spite of the fact that this was the worst time of the year to be shopping for an air conditioner! Nevertheless, because of your wonderful prayerful support of Del-Haven we found one and were able to buy it. It put us back a little over $650. Next – wouldn’t you know it – our gate opener (and closer) wore out! Not now, O Lord! We are now experiencing record inflation! But, our God is bigger than our troubled world. Once again, through His perfect provision through you all – we were able to replace it with a new one. That was an expense of right at $470. Because we have you prayerfully supporting us – these sort of things work out just the way Ro.8:28 describes: “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God – to them who are the called according to His purpose.” He continues to demonstrate His faithfulness through you all. We love Him – and we love and pray for all of you as well.
