Dear Friend/s of LaMoine Camp,
Can you believe it is August already? The months of June and July just flew on by. It is always with mixed feelings that I write the August receipt letter because our summer camp season is almost over. Yes, I am glad that the stresses of a summer camp season are coming to an end, but I am also sad that the joys and blessings I witness and experience all summer long will soon be ending as well. We hosted more campers this year than last and despite the heat; this youth camping season has been a HUGE SUCCESS! I thank you for your financial gift toward the ministry of providing a Christian camping environment where youth can be challenged to love and serve Jesus Christ.
Every summer, I am reminded of how much our kids need and love our camp. The outcomes for the campers from our programs are numerous; social skills development, increased self-respect and respect for others, character development, growth in community living and service skills, as well as our primary focus of individual spiritual growth. Thank you so much for providing a place where our youth can be impacted in a positive way and for making this a very special summer camp season. Your prayers and volunteer efforts are also so very vital to this ministry and I thank you for them as well.
Soon we will be once again hosting retreat groups and showcasing the beauty of LaMoine to our guests. Rest assured that the ministry work of the camp will continue even as the summer camp season comes to a close. Even now Matthew is working on the 2013 summer camp schedule and Jon is making his list of everything he wants to get accomplished during the off season. From Matthew, Jon, Wendy, myself, and the rest of the camp staff, we thank you for the joy and privilege of serving with you and God here at LaMoine Christian Service Camp. God Bless You!!!
Serving Our Savior Together,
