It’s Summer at Warm Beach Camp!
As I write this, our first major guest group of the summer is outside my office window, enjoying their family camp. The first horsemanship camp of the season is going on just down the hill at the Stables. The first Day Camp of the year, this one for our Special Friends, is in full swing in the big circus tent. And a brand new team of summer staffers have settled in alongside the year-round staff, ready to serve our campers and guests in Jesus’ name. It is summer!
Each season of the year is a special time at WBC, but summer is the high point! We serve our largest groups. Each new week brings a flurry of activity, with new participants. And each day, people find the answer to the needs of their lives in Jesus. That’s what it is all about. That’s what we are all about.
And, you are a part of all this, too. Because of your financial support, because of your volunteer efforts, Warm Beach Camp is a special place where people find rest, refreshment, and renewal.
You don’t get to hear all the happy sounds out your office window like I do. You probably won’t get to see the crosses hanging on the walls in our staff lunch room, each representing another child who has made a life-choice to follow Christ. You don’t get the privilege and pleasure of hearing people share their testimonies of the life-changing power of the Gospel of Christ they have experienced while at Warm Beach. But, I want you to see and hear it through my eyes and ears. It is for you, too.
May God bless you for what you are doing for Warm Beach Camp. —Ed McDowell
