From Florida with Love

Much of the work of ministry at Warm Beach Camp Lakeland 2016consists of preparing the way for others to experience rest, renewal, and re-connection. With good preparation, guests are able to fully enter into the purposes for which they come. Scripture exhorts us to bear one another’s burdens and thus live out the love taught by Jesus. We do this for each group that comes on the grounds as we prepare clean facilities, good food, and fun activities.

Recently, the Lakeland Christian School senior class came all the way from Lakeland, Florida, to bear our burdens for two days. They helped us accomplish so much more than we could have done otherwise.

The enthusiasm and work ethic of the Lakeland students and staff was a true blessing. This year, the biggest project area was a heroic effort to remove ivy from the entrance berm. They removed 3,000 lbs. of ivy! This work makes possible the eventual replanting with native understory which will provide better habitat and visual screening thus enhancing first impressions as guests come on to the property.

In addition to massive ivy removal, the Lakeland group constructed ten new picnic tables, organized and cleaned the RV campgrounds, built a new fence in front of a staff house, deep cleaned an amazing amount of facilities, prepared Chinook Village for a summer of Special Friends ministry, painted facilities at the Horse Stables, erected tents for summer programs, and restored much needed landscaping areas to spaces of beauty and refreshment.

On top of this, they left a financial gift, which is going toward the eventual interior refurbishment of Cascadian Lodge sleeping rooms. Their sacrificial giving and servant’s hearts are a testimony of the effective discipleship that students receive at Lakeland Christian School. God is bringing his Kingdom to life through this school.

Warm Beach Camp’s ministry will be a blessing to the people of the Pacific Northwest in part because a group of students came all the way from Florida to be a blessing to Warm Beach Camp. And we pray the blessing of love and service extended to us will return to them many times over.
