God’s loving embrace

MainPageSlideshow4

We have kids attend who come from many diverse backgrounds; culturally, emotionally and spiritually. Everyone walks through the doors on the first day of Horse Camp with a different experience or expectation of what a week at camp will be like.

One particular young lady who attended had recently been transitioned into a new family. She was timid around all the new kids who were at camp with her, and she was very afraid and unsure being around horses. Over the first two days, I watched as the other children embraced her. They drew her into their groups with open arms and they encouraged her as she cautiously approached each day with her horse. I have often taught that horses aren’t judgmental – they don’t care what background someone comes from, what color their skin is, what kind of clothes they wear, how they do their hair, or whether they have makeup on or not. Horses display unbiased love and long for love in return. What amazed me about this week of camp was that I saw this same love also displayed by the campers. It was more than just the horses that did a healing work in this young lady’s life.

The environment at camp as a whole – from the horses to the campers, to the staff – was open, inviting and encouraging, allowing this young lady the freedom to open up her heart to new friends and experiences in ways she hadn’t thought possible on the first day of camp. This was the realization of our purpose to provide a safe, fun, encouraging environment that draws campers into God’s loving embrace. I can’t wait to see more campers experience this same embrace at Horse Camp this summer!

Philippians 4:19 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/php.4.19.NLT You and I are cared for by God. Always.

Is a Fundraising Event Right for Your Organization?

From time to time I am approached by organizations looking for ways to improve their fundraising efforts. One idea on their list is inevitably an auction. Auctions seem pretty straight forward right? You get items donated, people pay for the items and your organization benefits from those purchases. I wish I could say it was so easy, but auctions can be much more complicated than they appear. There are few questions you should ask yourself before you dive in head ...

Kingdom Building in Korea

There he was, all 40 or so inches of him, heading up to the stage determined to be the first one to share at open mic time at Camp. This is a time where campers can share about their experiences during the week in front of the entire camp. In our English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, Eric was a good student – bright and very accomplished with his English as a 4th grader. He stepped on stage and ...
