Lamb’s Gate 2010

Where do I begin… there is so much I want to say and so much I can explain about this past week. Cabin 9 was amazing! There was a definite cultural barrier between the Lamb’s Gate girls and the others but as the week went on they began to communicate better and work as a team, it was amazing watching that transformation. While that was incredible that isn’t what I wish to say. These girls were incredible, they pushed me and challenged each other and myself to grow, they discovered ways to encourage each other and provide support without prompting. The girls were able to grow and host other cabins for Bible study and devotions and parties. They found ways to encourage each other and myself through the 9th grade canoe trip and the high ropes course. The girls realized while they were completely different they had a connection to each other in Christ.

It was one boy’s first time at camp and seemed a little freaked out by all the Koreans, but as the week went on all of them became best friends. In the weeks I have been here I have never seen a cabin bond so well, even with a huge language barrier in between.

My cabin was getting along well most of the week and it was really cool to see the friendships between American and Korean steadily growing. The coolest thing was at the end of the week, one of my American campers gave each of my Korean campers one of the t-shirts from his suitcase.

About a year ago, a wonderful 85-year-old grandmother entered my life. She approached us with the interest of taking riding lessons after many years of being out of the saddle. Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God

The past year has been difficult, bringing physical challenges, relationship losses, and employment transitions. My husband and I came to Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for several reasons. One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
