February update

God has been so amazing, calling and bringing us, as a family to this place where we can partner with you and Him in His plan to redeem the world!  

LifeChange Camp has as it’s its mission to "proclaim the gospel to all ages, raise up spiritual leaders, and maintain excellence in a safe, fun, growing camp experience." 

To us, this means being part of providing a safe, fun location where God can truly meet with kids, youth and adults away from the everyday noise of life. We have watched this month as groups of all ages gather to praise, worship, and seek God here as we have the opportunity to feed them, speak with them, and love them. Our Winter Teen Retreat allowed a great group of teens from several churches to connect with each other and God, and to hear and respond to a series of messages about being "made new" in Christ.  It is so rewarding to be a part of that!

Of course, every ministry always has two parts: those who are going and those who are sending. Something amazing happens when these ministry partnerships come together, each person responding to the role they have to play: lives are truly changed. You, our prayer and financial support team, play a vital role in the lives that are being changed here.!

We see the hand of God daily in continued health and safety for our family, and we deeply covet your continued prayers. Right now, one big prayer request is the finding of a house for our family to live near LifeChange Camp. We currently live about 20 minutes away, which, for a facilities manager, is long ways. We, and the team we work with, would love to see us move either onto camp or right next door. There is one particular piece of property that seems to be perfect for both our housing and possible future staff housing, and we are praying that if it is God's will, the camp would be able to purchase that piece of property. Please pray together with us that exactly the right housing situation would be able to move forward! 

Financially, during January we received exactly the amount we needed: $500! How amazing! We also received ongoing pledges totaling to $75/month for this year! 
This leaves us with $425/month that we still need to raise this year to meet our goal, and to be able to continue doing ministry here well. 
We are so thankful to have friends and family on our team who partner with us in ministry. If you feel called to be a part of our financial support team, you can do so at this link:http://www.lifechangecamp.org/get-involved/giving -- just mention our name in the note.
We love you and are so thankful for the amazing people we have in our lives. -- if you are ever in our part of the world, we would LOVE to have you over for dinner!
