Camp Hopetown 11-12th Grade

 

Jeremiah 29:11-14
Seek God and His plan will be revealed. 
Encourage with the hope of what God can do.


The below letter was written by Laura Allen, an eleventh grade girl, who was told (with the rest of the group) that she was to write a note as if everyone else in the room was discouraged and she was the only one who had hope...

"Wherever you are, God can find you, and you can find God. If you need a sense of hope & security, know that there is none greater than the hope the Lord offers. Our spirits are made alive in Him. Our hearts are made full in Him. Our minds are opened in Him. His realness and the truth in His words are astounding. And I believe there is no greater adventure than the adventure of seeking the Realness of God. And I believe there is no greater treasure than that which is found in His truth. If you seek that, you may very well be a different person each day - as your spirit is made alive in Him. Let His face shine upon you. Let His words of wisdom and truth guide you and bring you home. Join with Him in an adventure of unimaginable excitement and sincere fulfillment and contentment."

We are so thankful for all of you for being a part of this adventure with us. We are SO grateful and encouraged at Hopetown because we have been very blessed in the last week and our summer contributions are now up to $74,910 out of $140,000. This week we have a young man who is a senior in high school and his Dad has lost his job and, therefore, is on a full scholarship for camp. If you all know of anyone interested in helping with this, please let us know. Also, if any of you have road or hybrid bikes that you would want to donate or know of someone who might, we have worn down a few of ours over the years and are needing some replacements. 

Thank you all!!
Kathleen and Brian
