As we come unto the final months of another year in the ministry of Camp Del-Haven – we find ourselves praying earnestly that the Lord will grant that we be able to – once again — have regular camp sessions in 2022. Make no mistake about it, our God is in sovereign control over all our circumstances – whether we judge them to be good, or to be bad. All our “times” – have been, and are, in His hand for to do all His will and good pleasure. From Ps.31:15 David is inspired by the Holy Spirit to say: “My times are in thy hand – deliver me from the hand of mine enemies – and from them that persecute me.” Therefore, it is totally appropriate for us to prayerfully seek from God, our Savior, His deliverance from our adverse circumstances. Prayer is the activity of His yielded and still children as they exercise their patient waiting for Him to hear and to answer their desperate supplications! From Ps.50:15 God tells us: “Call upon me in the day of trouble – I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me!
This is also why each and every month we need you — more than anything else – to continue to pray for all the campers that our sovereign Lord and Leader has sent to us to faithfully declare and deliver to them the pure truth of God’s everlasting gospel of His great grace. Like all of us – they need His daily protection, preservation and strength in order to make it safely through this fallen and sinful world. And, of course, please do not forget to pray for all of the young people that are our staff helpers. Don’t forget – all of us are in essence volunteers. This means that none of us are paid salaries. This means we are constantly facing turn overs where our staff is concerned. This is only normal. It is the Lord who also continues to supply this all important need (Phil.4:19)! Please do not forget to pray with us — in regards to this ongoing matter.
We give earnest thanks to our ever faithful God for your continual financial support whereby we are able to maintain the monthly expenses of the camp property and utilities. We recently had to hire some tree service professionals to deal with some additional real threats of having more damage occur on some more of our buildings. This situation we spotted after our attention was aroused due to what happened to the roof of our Cabin Two! We had to have 12 more trees cut down and four trees expertly trimmed in order to remove the real threat of damage to our Dining Hall, Restroom Facility, Shelter House and Jeff and Leslie’s Home. This put us back by $4250! This did not include the removal of the tree trunks and all the piles of brush. So, we are faced with the awesome job of cleaning up the mess. So, please pray that we safely see this task through to its completion. Thank you all! We love and pray for you.
“For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God
by the death of His Son – much more –
being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life!” [Ro.5:11]
