Alexander Cook, Black Diamond Intern

Hello! My name is Alexander and I am proud to be a part of the Black Diamond Camp Internship program!

I found myself at Camp back in 2019 as a summer staffer, it was then I got to meet all the wonderful staff and experience the beautiful campus. I served two more summers after my first, and now I find myself in the internship program!

Camp has really become a large part of my life, something the former me would never have expected. If there’s one thing I’ve learned while working at Black Diamond it’s God is in control and only He really knows the plan! I never planned to stay at Camp this long, but I’m glad I have. I’m blessed to be able to be a part of this ministry and its wonderful community, and I’m grateful that this is where God put me.

For me as a person it’s hard to really “give up” when it comes to plans and the future. It took me a LONG time to finally relax and let God be in control, but at the end of the day, only He can truly give us what we need! This mindset isn’t always easy, but sometimes we all need to step back, take a deep breath, and remember that God has us – always. Even God rested on the seventh day!

Will you take a few minutes to reflect with me on what God has to say about different types of rest? Scripture • For the weary person carrying heavy burdens ...

Just a Hint of Heaven

In Mark 6:30, Jesus called His disciples to “come away and rest by yourselves.” It was an invitation to separate themselves from the work of the Kingdom, from the press of the crowds, and from daily cares. And best of all, they got to just be with Jesus. That’s what coming to Warm Beach Camp has felt like for me personally. It’s been an invitation to come away and spend time with Jesus. I have been attending family camps at ...

Words from the Heart

For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved. Romans 10:10 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/rom.10.10.NLT The writer of the book of Romans is sharing words from his heart. He wants everyone to understand the way to be made right with God. He longs for everyone to be saved. Listen to what is being said: Dear brothers and sisters, the longing of my heart and ...
