Dear Friend/s of the Camp,

The fall season is so beautiful at LaMoine. The majority of the leaves have already fallen around the camp and winter is just around the corner. I do love this time of year though; the cooler weather, seeing the deer on the property, hosting many retreats of various types, and of course Thanksgiving and Christmas. There is still so much to do here at LaMoine that will help us draw even more youth and adults to this blessed place. I want you to know that we are committed to making plans that will maximize our ministry opportunities, asking God for His blessing, and then waiting on God’s people for the funds to continue our growing ways.

One such blessing was realized just recently. With funds raised over the past 6 months, a new tractor with end-loader was purchased for the camp from our local Kubota dealer. This new tractor is a 50hp, turbo diesel, front-wheel assist, hydrostatic transmission, driving machine. The Kubota was the best choice for the camp based on price, tractor specifications, and dealer proximity to the camp. Currently, we have our older tractor up for sale and are looking to raise the remaining money needed to purchase an 11ft finish mower (approximately $6,000.00 still needed). Dave, Jon, and I thank, you, our camp partners again for how you got behind this need of the camp.

This holiday season, please celebrate with me everything that God is allowing us to be a part of at LaMoine; the summer camps, the rental retreats, and the changed lives. While it is God that brings about the increase to His Kingdom, it is you who are faithful in your giving to this ministry. Your gifts of prayer, money, and volunteer help, are what allow the camp to continue to provide a place where people of all ages can come to experience God in a personal and meaningful way. May God be ever glorified by what we do together at LaMoine Christian Service Camp. From all of us at the camp, have a blessed Thanksgiving time with family and friends and “thank you” again for partnering with us in the work of LaMoine Christian Service Camp.
