“The Lord is good to those who wait for him,
to the soul who seeks him.”
Lam. 3:25

Not a long update this week, because it won’t take long to tell you about the two things that have us most excited this week. The first thing is, for the first time since last winter, campers will arrive this Friday! We are moving ahead with plans to host 5 weekends of winter retreats for teens. There will be smaller numbers of campers, less mixing of groups, a schedule of activities that is put together a bit differently than normal, and even multiple seating times for some meals. But it will be the same camp song sung in chapel, the same beautiful creation to enjoy, and the same gospel proclaimed as it always has been. The second thing we are excited about is, summer registration opens on Wednesday. Praise the Lord as we once again take registrations for a summer of camping ministry! Perhaps things will be run a little differently this year in winter as well as summer, but God’s plans and purposes will be accomplished and will certainly not be thwarted by masks, viruses, or regulations. We are thankful for your prayers this week as we prepare for these guests to arrive as well as for the larger season ahead in the summer.

Ways you can pray for us:

  • Pray for us as we get into a new routine and schedule of working weekends and preparing throughout the week, while also continuing our family’s schedule of homeschooling and some evening activities.
  • Pray for the health of the staff as well as all the guests as we go through the next 5 weeks.
  • Pray as the Lord brings those that He will, that their hearts would truly seek Him.

Rachel, for the Bennetts
