Dear Friends,

"It's so rare to be in a place with people who want the same things as you. "

The song that framed that first week was one by our friend, Sandra McCracken.  The chorus says:

We will feast in the house of Zion.

We will sing with our hearts restored.

He has done great things, we will say together.

We will feast and weep no more.

One of the kids commented that this song may have been written about heaven, but felt like much of what Hopetown is about.  It's also what the day camps are about that meet at the Daystar house.  And the counseling that takes place, both individually and in groups. 

He has done great things.  He continues to, even when things are hard.  Weeping may remain for the night, but joy comes in the morning.  We will sing with our hearts restored one day.  And we can sing together now, rejoicing in what he is doing and what he will continue to do every day until that great feast.  That is the hope we profess.  That is the hope we have the honor of sharing every day in every branch of Daystar this summer.  We're grateful for your support that enables us to walk out that hope with hundreds of kids.  He has done great things.  And we are more than grateful, for your support and for his ongoing work of restoring every one of our hearts.

With great hope,

The Daystar Staff
