A Heartwarming and Joyous Plan!

When a woman from a senior community quilter’s group came to Warm Beach Camp, she was not expecting to have a bond with a group of students attending a high school retreat. However, where God is at work, connections can be found in the unlikeliest of places.

At mealtimes, the woman and her quilter friends would go to the dining room and share the space with a group of teenagers and their teachers. Through conversation over a delicious meal, it was discovered that this wonderful woman had just celebrated her 101st birthday! She explained to the students that while she is no longer able to quilt, she still loves to join in the outing to spend quality time with all her wonderful friends.

To her surprise, the students had devised a heartwarming and joyous plan! During their next shared meal, the woman was carefully escorted to the front of the dining room. The entire room sang Happy Birthday to her, and once the singing was finished, the students gave her a card and a school t-shirt commemorating their time together. It was such a precious gift to her that she wore the shirt throughout her stay at Camp!

This woman was blessed by the kindness and compassion of the students, and in turn, honoring this special woman was the highlight of the students and their teachers’ time at Camp. Being surrounded by the presence of God at Warm Beach Camp opens people up to experience the sweetness of God and allows for all preconceived barriers to fall away.
