A Man of service

Steve and Jacque Johnson began volunteering at Warm Beach Camp over four years ago. The couple dedicated their lives to service for the Lord and enjoyed working with youth and overseas missions. Steve spent 41 years working with the youth group at Wenatchee Free Methodist/Sage Hills Church. In 2005, Steve and one of his best friends, Ron Bundy, bought a shop where they repaired cars for single mothers and widows, and spent years ministering to hundreds.

Steve’s life was cut short at the age of 73 by cancer. Those who knew him would say he did more for others in those 73 years than most do in two lifetimes. Steve gave every ounce of himself away to others. He was kind, generous, and very hard working.

Warm Beach Camp was blessed by Steve’s service. The work of his hands is evident here. He helped build the new Chinook Cabins, a new storage building at the stables, and helped to remodel 19 rooms of Cascadian Lodge. Steve also helped upgrade the lighting in Cedar Lodge, fixed countless Camp vehicles, and volunteered at The Light of Christmas!

We praise the Lord for the life of Steve Johnson!

It was a polite and humorous way of asking me to examine my priorities and purpose. Jesus asks the same question when ...

Body

Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself… 1 Corinthians 6:19 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/1co.6.19.NLT Image by Mimzy from Pixabay We live in a time where there is intense debate over one’s body and the personal freedoms and responsibilities associated with one’s body. Some laws regarding one’s body and corresponding rights have been considered by the highest court in the ...
