Happy New Year
Wow!! I cannot believe that 2015 is already in the books. God has truly been good this year. Over the past year, God has used programs and retreats at Christian camps all over the world to reach thousands of people with the Gospel. At our facility alone, we had over 3,000 guests come onto the property for various camp events. Many young people prayed to receive Christ as their Savior. Others rededicated their lives and became serious about living for Him. Finally, many more were strengthened and refreshed in their walk with Him, and were equipped and motivated to be a light for Him in their circles of influence.
In addition to the children, youth, and adults, who attended these events, we have a unique opportunity to minister to the 15-20 young adults who serve on our summer staff. The relationships that we build with these servant leaders do not end when they leave the gates of our facility. We have been blessed with the opportunity to continue ministering to them throughout the year. They become a part of our family. We celebrate weddings and engagements. We rejoice when they begin families of their own. We pray for them as they enter ministry opportunities and careers. It is a great joy to see these young adults grow and mature into men and women of God.
That is what I love about camp. The work that God does at camp does not end when groups leave. God continues to use the experiences people have in camp programs to radically change hearts and lives. We ask you to join us in praying for Waukaway Springs this year. We need passionate prayer warriors to stand in the gap and lift this ministry up to the Father. We are anticipating that God is going to do some awesome things this year through this facility, and we need people like you to lift us up. James 5:16 says, “The effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” God has set this ministry apart for GREAT things. We rejoice, and step in faith knowing that He will do a mighty work. Will you do that for us? Will you stand in the gap? Thank you again for all of your prayers and support. We love you all!!! Happy New Year!!!
