A Very Good Thing

When I gaze upon the beauty of a PNW sunset from my outlook at the stables. God’s faithfulness and provision are ever-present. His evidence abounds. The evergreen trees and lush green pastures withstand record breaking heat of summer, buffeting high winds of fall and bitter cold in winter. They remain the backdrop for the life-giving ministry between horses and people and give testimony to the work the Lord has laid before us at the stables. Beautiful fruit is being shaped in the lives of students, volunteers, staff, and horses. Whether in a riding lesson, summer camp, adaptive riding, vaulting or equine assisted learning, clients experience and practice love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control with their equine partners. All are working together for their good and ultimately God’s glory.

As we enter a new season, we are reminded of God’s enduring love and our trust in His faithful provision. Throughout the pandemic He sustained us and brought us through with increasing clarity, resolve and commitment to serve the community. We trust He will continue to bring the people and resources needed to help this program thrive. We give thanks continually for the Lord and His people who support the Horsemanship program through prayer, financial gifts, volunteering, and enrollment in classes. We are truly blessed. The Lord is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. We trust He has our best interest in mind and when He opens a door, it stays open. His enduring love has brought us this far, we know He will teach us, guide us, and show us the way. Through this program people find breakthrough, freedom, confidence, and validation. The Lord has begun a good thing. His enduring love lasts forever. We trust He will see it through to completion. Come and see what the Lord is doing. It is a very good thing!

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD,
whose trust is the LORD.
He is like a tree planted by water,
that sends out its roots by the stream,
and does not fear when heat comes,
for its leaves remain green,
and is not anxious in the year of drought,
for it does not cease to bear fruit.”
-Jeremiah 17:7-8

The Glitter Gals

The Lights of Christmas Outdoor Artistic Designer, Laurie Fertello, gave the July 2022 SOWER ladies the name “The Glitter Gals.” SOWERS (Servants On Wheels Ever Ready) come as couples in their RVs to work for three weeks at a time before moving on to serve at another Christian organization. This year we had SOWERS in June, July, August, and September. During the summer, SOWER ladies usually work in, or outside, the paint shop with Laurie. The July ladies were tasked ...

Discovery – Exploring New Possibilities

Warm Beach Camp Ministries is stepping into the new year with a conviction that over the next 5 years, we will connect 1 million people with Jesus by partnering with leaders to provide transformational experiences.

Connecting people to Jesus at Rainier Retreat Camp & Retreat Center

Warm Beach Camp Ministries partners with Crystal Mountain Ski Resort to make Rainier Camp & Retreat Center home for many of Crystal’s seasonal workers. Serving our Guests at Rainier Camp is a true call of God and a fantastic opportunity for Warm Beach Camp Ministries to be the hands and feet of Jesus. I can't lie, it's a challenge, as most of the guests on the mountain don't know Jesus. The difficulty lies in presenting the Gospel in a way ...
