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.

Creating Beauty

Being in my garden feeds my soul. But gardens need care – weeding, pruning, dividing, and transplanting occur frequently. It’s part of the deal – part of the joy – at least most of the time. When it comes to pruning and moving and removing, I am often ...

The Generosity and Understanding of Jesus

There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most. -Hebrews 4:16 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/heb.4.16.NLT Take time to listen to these words. Read, speak and own them. These words are for you and me. So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us ...

The Power of Community

Volunteers play a key role in the Warm Beach Camp community and have since its beginnings. In 2019 volunteers donated over 40,000 hours of their time to keep the grounds looking beautiful, to help run programs, to maintain the heard for horses, and so much more. Warm Beach Camp volunteers often come intending only to stay for a month or two but end up staying for years. When I ask them why, their reply is, “Because it feels like home.” “I volunteer at ...
