Thank You, Volunteers!

The people listed below volunteered their time and talent to help out at Warm Beach Camp during the months of July, August, and September, 2008. They served as maintenance help, construction workers, office and mailroom helpers, grounds maintenance help, camp nurses, wrangling staff, program staff, or another important function.

All told, more than 3,600 hours of volunteer labor were given to the Camp during this three-month period. Our volunteers are an incredible resource that helps keep this ministry strong and growing. Each of these wonderful volunteers, in his or her own special way, helped make a world of difference in someone’s life. Thank you!

She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God
