Brandon’s Ticket

I asked him if he had worked for that money, and he said, “Yes, I did!” and he stood a little taller. He said, “I worked all year to save up this money to come to camp. I sure did a lot of yard work for this.”

He began counting out the coins and stacking them up; I suggested he keep the quarters and give me the nickels and dimes so his bag would be lighter. He counted out the eight dollars in coins and proudly handed them to me. When I gave him his ticket to the climbing tower, he was smiling ear to ear. He scraped the remaining coins back into the bag, and told me his name was Brandon so I could add his name to the roster.

That afternoon at 2 p.m., Brandon got his long-awaited chance to climb the tower.

I will remember that cute little boy, and how proud he was when he handed me his hard-earned money for his ticket. I knew he would really appreciate his hour at the climbing tower, especially since he had worked and saved and dreamed all year about climbing the tower at WBC.

That is what we do here – allow children like Brandon to have experiences they will remember all year. Each of our staff has a part in making this happen, and so do the many people who support the ministry of WBC. You all helped make a little boy named Brandon very happy. But, I was the one who got to see the joy on this child’s face, and I thought you should know. Thank you for all you do to keep the path clear to the cross at Warm Beach Camp.

Volunteers Are Integral to the Horsemanship Ministry

Imagine you are standing next to a horse, physically vulnerable, and mentally terrified. How will you get on? How will you get off? How will you sit in that saddle way off the ground? How will you go, stop, and most importantly, steer? With your mind racing and your body doubtful of this situation, you turn to the volunteer who is smiling at you and say, “Could you please help me?” The Warm Beach Horsemanship program is unique: we provide ...

Gone Forever

"He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.” Revelation 21:4 NLT The Apostle John is writing down the vision from God about a time when everything is made new by God. God is back among us: I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will ...
