Hope and love in God

As I sat around the crackling campfire with my campers this summer, I was filled with amazement as they began to share their stories. One particular girl stood out to me. I knew some of her background as she’d been to Horse Camp for a number of years, but this year was different. She had a sparkle in her eye as she told of the way God had helped her through her struggles and she boldly encouraged the other kids to trust and seek Him. Her passion and heartfelt care for the others who she knew were struggling, brought them hope. Her story pointed to God, our amazing Father who used her passion for horses to draw her close to Him.

We often use the illustration of a horse and rider as a picture of the relationship God longs to have with us. Just like we as riders long for our horses to trust and obey us so that we can have harmony together, so God longs for us to trust and obey Him so that we can reach the full potential He has for us. When the horse trusts us and takes that step of faith, we are filled with pride and joy over the bond we have established with them. Sometimes hard and challenging circumstances come across our paths in life and God longs for us to trust Him and follow Him through those trials.

I am thankful that God uses Warm Beach Camp and our horses to show campers they can have hope and love in God.

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” – Romans 15:13

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 ...
