Gratitude – It’s in our DNA
Warm Beach Camp is overflowing with gratitude for the initiatives and transforming work of our Lord Jesus, and gratitude for our donors and volunteers.
One of the privileges of the board is to hear stories about the work of the Kingdom in people’s lives and to see new initiatives like Special Friends Camps, camps for adults with special needs. When we watched the video of the first Special Friends Camp, tears of gratitude were flowing. Like the Psalmist, we gave thanks to the Lord for He is good, and His steadfast love for Special Friends endures forever.
During a recent board meeting, we visited Chinook Village while work was under way. Most of the work was done by volunteers. The generosity and commitment of the volunteers is truly amazing. This December we will celebrate 20 years of The Lights of Christmas. Many volunteers have hung lights, worked on displays, and greeted guests at the front gate by the fire. It’s humbling to think about the hundreds of thousands of people whose lives have been touched by The Lights.
Gratitude to the Lord and each other has been in our DNA beginning from the Camp’s founding many decades ago and continuing to today. Thank you to all who support and partner with us! Thank you for making Warm Beach Camp a place of profound life change for thousands of people. As Paul said, we do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in our prayers. With gratitude!
