Summer 2012

Hello Friends!
I've been reflecting and praying about next summer. I spoke to Jennyfer Norvell from Week of Hope Orlando. She has assigned 12 people to come out to Bithlo Summer camp Mon-Thurs. next summer!!! Yea!!!! I doing this again? Still praying...God is so good. We are talking abou this almost daily. I love my Bithlo family. The kids and volunteers have a very sweet place in my heart. So please begin praying with me about next summer.

The one thing I know I will need is another person or two to take the role of Camp director. I've got the notion that if a team directed the camp it would be easier for any one of us to take a day or two off each week. What I want is for there to be consistency in the volunteers so that the children feel comfortable and loved. Our goal is to love them to Jesus!

Please pray about your role. Email me at
I'm believing God!

So blessed!!!!!

Hello Everyone! I am so blessed! I am so thankful to all who have responded and helped this week either by volunteering, donating or both! Wow! God's people are awesome!

We are still not set up for free lunch. We would love to do pizza next week. The Little Ceazer's pizza is good at $5 a pie. We could also use some cups, plates, napkins, forks, icees, cookies, chips, fruit.

We could use another couple people to help in the kitchen. It doesn't have to be every day.

If you are good at crafts, or games please join us. We have such a blast!

Best of all we are planting God's truth in their lives! So awesome!

What we need this week

We will need:

an additional kitchen helper for tomorrow, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

We need Ham and cheese for Thursday's lunch.

We need a guest speaker for this Wednesday or Thursday. A guest speaker is anyone who can speak to children about their specialty and incorporate spiritual truth.

You can come out and just serve as a counselor. You would walk the kids around, sit and play, play outside, and just help in anyway needed. The more hands the better!

Summer Camp begins tomorrow!

Wow! It's finally here!

This week we will be focusing on Matthew 11:15.

"What goes into a man's mouth does not make him unclean but what comes out of his mouth that is what makes him unclean."

The children will memorize that verse and all of our activities will emphasize this truth.

There will be a food fight, food stamping and we will play hot potato.

We will also be making 2 human sundaes!

Please pray for a smooth start and safety.

Pre-Camp meeting!!!

The kids and their families are ready to come to summer camp. We may have 15-20 children the first week. We need as many of you to come. They need as much attention as possible. I'd love to have 10 or more volunteers each time.

Hope to see you all there!
