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.

Terrific Volunteer meeting!!!

There were seven of us in attendance at the meeting tonight! It was great to hear Tim McKinney's heart on the issues in Bithlo and how we get to influence children's lives and maybe an entire community through our little summer camp. It was so nice to talk about how God has weaved our lives together for such a time as this! I'm so excited about what God will do through us!

We went over the overall camp theme and our goals to love the children, listen to their hearts and offer them the hope of Jesus Christ. It was an uplifting time!

I believe that God is putting together an amazing team. I can hardly wait to get started.

Check out the post about the items we need donated.

If you would like to help in any way please email me. We can't have enough volunteers! We can do amazing things for God's glory if we work together!
