Praises and Prayer Requests
Well, dear ones, we may finally be embarking on the pleasant, cooler days of Autumn. How refreshing that will be! Soon the campground will become aglow with all of God’s beautiful Fall colors of the forest leaves. It will be but another wonderful testimony of His matchless glory.
Just recently we received word of another loved one of the Camp Del-Haven family being called home to be with the Lord. It was Archie Murdock. He and his wife, Dorothy, served on our board of directors for many years. The two of them have been loyal allies and supporters of this ministry. They have never forgotten us – and we will never forget them. Please remember Dorothy in your prayers at this time. Pray for the comfort and peace and strength that only God can give unto her. “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.”
The move of Jeff Hall and his family onto the campground is making good progress. Please continue to support them with your prayers and however else the Lord may lead you. If any of you have any questions – just call: (816) 277-7071.
As always, please remember to pray for us – that our God would provide just the right male and female staff members. We especially need male help on our staff. The number of campers that we can handle depends directly to the number of good staff we have for any camp session. The effective ratio is typically one staff person per four campers. The Lord God knows what we need in order to do His work – and Camp Del-Haven is definitely His work!
Also, dear family in Christ, please do not forget to lift up all the children that the Lord has sent to us as campers. They need our continual, faithful prayers that the Spirit of Christ will truly establish a true relationship with them – in their daily lives. Their neighborhoods; their homes; their schools – are fraught with the traps and snares of the Evil One and this world. There’s only one way that any of us can safely make it through this world – and that is by the leading and protection of the Holy Spirit of God! We pray for you-all – for your continual love and support – that our Lord will bless you and keep you – and that you will remember to pray for the boys and girls that God, through us, has planted the good seed of His glorious gospel. As it has before been stated: This ministry was founded on prayer – and has been sustained by prayer – and will only continue with prayer. We need your prayers! Thank you for being there. We love you all.
