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.

Despite the COVID pandemic The Lights of Christmas presents: “A Drive-Thru Christmas” is shaping up to be one of the most successful Christmas seasons Warm Beach Camp has ever seen. Tickets are selling out, donuts are flying off the shelves, and the retail tent is running to keep up with the demand. One Saturday night a volunteer named Ron was helping a guest at the end of the event. A man in his 60s pulled in and began asking Ron ...

Horses Bring Hope

Warm Beach Horsemanship is one of the few programs at Camp that can follow CDC guidelines and remain open, providing a place of hope and healing during these challenging times. Due to the restrictions caused by COVID-19 many people’s lives have been thrown into turmoil. Things we once took for granted have been stripped away from us, however amidst this turmoil there is HOPE…    Those missing physical touch can wrap their arms around a horse and feel the comfort that comes from an embrace. Words cannot express the joy and healing ...

Lamentations 3:23 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/lam.3.23.NLT This morning was a beautiful time with God. He met with me in the early morning hours around a warming fire and a cup of dark roast coffee. In prayer and reflection, God showed me His faithfulness in my life. He led me to a view point where all I see is His faithfulness. To be sure, there is much ...
