Stories of Summer

... a summer of great conversations, thoughtful questions, and God working in quiet moments.

During one of the Camp Good News days, J. came to Camp Leader Mrs. E. and said she wanted to tell someone she prayed to receive Jesus at the quiet prayer time after the Bible story. She said as soon as she prayed, she “felt all different inside.”

Part of our Camp Good News schedule is Interview Time. Hannah was sharing this special one-on-one time with a camper, when Hannah asked the young girl if she had any questions about God or the Bible. “Yes, I do,” she said. “What color is God?” Praise the Lord that Hannah was able to share more about Who Jesus is with her.

Camp Team Leader Mrs. Evans asked the camper she was interviewing if she had any special prayer requests for her. This older girl said, yes, she did. Would Mrs. Evans please pray that she would be more faithful in reading her Bible?

While June was chatting with B. during a quiet moment, B. asked June, “Is he really your husband?” (pointing to Jack)

June answered, “Yes, he is.”

“That’s really great,” B. said, “because you both know about God!”

“And you know what else?” June asked. “We both love God very much.”

“Me too!!” B. answered. “I love Him so much that I even read the Bible!”

The last day of camp one week, at sign-out, a young boy called June over to him. He wanted June to write down the name of the missionary in the true story she had told that week. He was planning to go home and look up the missionary on YouTube!

A brother and sister from our Rainbow Good News Club came to camp. We hadn’t seen them since the winter of 2020 when school went online and club had to be cancelled. In the summer of 2020,  they had been part of Camp Good News Online. As part of online Camp, they both had signed up for a care package and had earned a special prize for doing the online quizzes. When time came to deliver the care packages and prizes, we couldn’t find them and found out later it was because a car had crashed into their apartment building, and they had been evacuated. We gave up, not knowing if we would  ever see them again. But here they were at Camp this summer! We were very happy to award them their prizes and their special care packages, only a year later!

“Dear Pastor Jack, Mrs. (Sister) June, and all the staff of Camp Good News, Thank you so much for the wonderful week that our son Paul experienced with all of you. We love the songs, Bible verses and stories that our son relates to us. It’s a great change as he is not just having fun socially but most of all he’s been fed spiritually. Praise God for the victory over this week. Our prayers are with everyone...even after the camp is over.”
