Do warm days of relaxing on the beach or sticking close to an air con-ditioner seem too ar away to even imagine? For us summer is just around the corner, and so summer prep is in full swing. Our summer means partnering with summer missionaries and coming together with many other believers to reach out to children through two weeks of 5-Day Clubs and four weeks of  Camp Good News and Kiddie Camp. These ministries are vital avenues of sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with children who, in many cases, have never heard.  


Here is a snapshot of our summer schedule. 

  • June 4  Day Camp Orientation Meet-ing for all staff 
  • June 11-24  Summer Missionary Training School 
  • June 26-30    5-Day Clubs
  • July 10-14  Camp Good News Coates-ville Wk. 1 
  • July 17-21  Camp Good News Coates-ville Wk. 2 
  • July 24-28  Kiddie Camp Coatesville 
  • July 31-Aug 4 Camp Good News Ox-ford  
  • Aug 7-11  5-Day Clubs 

Summer Needs

We are in need of an archery leader for our Oxford camp and a kitchen helper for Kiddie Camp. We also need more teen and adult team helpers for Oxford and Coatesville camps. 
 
We again need lots of  new inexpensive items to stock our day camp store—for girls and boys—toys like matchbox cars, small action figures,  sticky goop, stuffed animals, markers, colored pencils, stampers, and balls—always balls! Thank you to all who gave in past years. Your contributions were a huge help!
 

Broken Furnace Blessings 

I certainly didn’t expect blessings to come from our broken furnace, but…

Recently I got a call from our oil company saying the last payment for our heating oil had been paid. The only message the person left was - "Tell them this is from a sister in Christ who loves children."  
We’ve also received several notes and gifts—”Dear Jack, I pray often for Child Evangelism and the ministry in the schools. What a blessing that these dear children hear that Jesus loves them. The enclosed check is to help keep the home and office warm.” 
We now have $4,620 toward our Furnace Project. Only $2,380 still needed! 
 
Praise the Lord for people like you who are praying, working, and giving, often even without our knowledge. Thank you for being used of God to turn a broken furnace into a blessing!
