Blessings Big and Small

To see Warm Beach Camp empty at a time of year when it would normally be flooded with guests and campers is an odd sight. The past four months at the Camp have been challenging to say the least. Camp staff have made drastic adjustments at work to adapt to government requirements and the lack of revenue the Camp is experiencing. But, in all of this we have seen God’s blessing and provision every day.

The blessings come in big and small packages: Two semi-trucks full of donated furniture and household goods to help beautify the Camp, boxes of produce for staff, funds from the Paycheck Protection Program to cover payroll and utilities for two months, and the installation of new fiber-optic WiFi. In addition, after years of searching, the Camp was able to hire a Head Chef. Although we cannot gather for daily staff meetings, it is a blessing to stay connected by sharing email devotions and other encouraging words.

During this season, opening the Camp mail has been a parade of blessing after unexpected blessing. Donors giving above and beyond their regular giving, people giving who have not given for years, donations so large or sacrificial all you can do is cry. Our volunteers continue to bless us by deep cleaning, repair and beautification projects that could not be accomplished with a full campus. Because of their contribution, when guests return, the facilities and grounds will look better than ever.

Warm Beach Camp is grateful for the ways our donors and community members have contributed to the ministry and the way God has been blessing us. As the Camp perseveres through these challenging times, we pray for the Lord’s blessings. Our thanks are endless, and our prayers are continuous.

Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t retaliate with insults when people insult you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God has called you to do, and he will grant you his blessing. For the Scriptures say, “If you want to enjoy life and ...

Just Before

Just stay calm.” Exodus 14:14 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/exo.14.14.NLT  I have come to understand in the human experience there are the “Just before” moments that tend to call into question everything that is about to happen: Just before the wedding, a nervous bride or groom thinks or says “should I really be doing this?” Just before opening or expanding a ministry or business, there can be a wave of ...
