I am grateful for… 

  • God. He has been showing His faithfulness and drawing me closer to Him. 
  • The generosity of others. People have been supporting the ministry with a level of generosity that is so encouraging through this time. Thank you! 
  • The Lights of Christmas: “A Drive-Thru Christmas” in 2020. It has brought encouragement to so many. It is quite likely that more people have come this year than ever before. Wow! It has brought provision to Warm Beach Camp Ministries. 
  • Black Diamond Camp and Rainier Camp joining the ministry of Warm Beach Camp. This gift of ministry was unexpected. It is exciting to see what God is doing. We give Him praise! 
  • The staff and volunteers that do the daily work of the ministries. So many have had to find other part- or full-time work during this time. Everyone is serving with such commitment and enthusiasm. What an amazing team of people! 
  • The Warm Beach Camp Ministries Board of Directors. God has been giving them courageous wisdom during this season. 
  • To be anticipating ministry on all three campuses in 2021. While the team expects the winter and spring to be quiet, they are planning on a summer of re-emergence in faith. 
  • The ministry we have been able to keep doing during this pandemic; School at Camp (Day Camps), Horsemanship LessonsTherapeutic Riding Lessons, and ministry to military families. 
  • To be praying and sharing. Let me know if there are ways I can pray for you. 

Giving thanks to God for all the work he has done at Warm Beach Camp Ministries and the work He continues to do through the staff and donors.

But after a couple of years, she got a better offer! An offer of marriage, that is, to her husband, Dan Keane. But that was not the end of it! In 2003, several kids and 17 years later, Margie returned to Warm Beach to serve full-time in the Business ...

Everywhere

Everywhere – from east to west – praise the name of the Lord. Psalms 113:2 There is a lot of talk today about what unites and divides us as people. From families to the massive global community, we don’t like division, yet we experience it. We like unity and community. It is a gift that brings joy, delight, and well-being to everyone within its reach everywhere. As a follower of Jesus Christ, the great unifier within families, communities, nations, and ...

This is Why We’re Here

On this particular Friday, twelve pairs of eyes looked down at Onyx and I from the arena grandstands. As I sat on Onyx’s sturdy frame, I looked back at the twelve campers. My mind flashed to Monday, the first day of camp. There was one camper who had been scared to get on her horse. However, after some reassurance and coaxing she had said she would try to ride. “I am so proud of you for pushing through your fear! ...
