Encouraged in Heart and United in Love
January 13th, 2022
Dear Prayer Team!
What an exciting time of year it is! Although the snow seems thick and more permanent than we would like to admit, we know that spring and summer will eventually come!
The reprieve from the cold few short days of warmth has offered brightened my spirits and once again sparked the excitement for our summer camp season of 2022!
This uplifting reminds me of the spirit of Paul as he writes to the individuals in Colossae. A man with such heaviness surrounding him but a heart full of hope and encouragement. I read these words earlier this week and have settled on them for a time.
“2 My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. 4 I tell you this so that no one may deceive you by fine-sounding arguments.”
I am encouraged by these words as we continue to foster relationships, think critically, grow spiritually, and in all efforts try and glorify God through this ministry! That we, as a community, more extensive than simply the buildings or location of this camp, come united in love so that we may know God and be able to share that! How exciting a thought!
May we join together in prayer for the coming seasons, the current challenges, and the wisdom of God we do not yet see!
Specific prayer requests:
As we begin to take applications for our spring and summer programming that God is bringing together the people He needs for this team.
That we are obedient in our promptings from the Lord to share His love.
Health for our Directors – Physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health has all been impacted deeply through a multitude of scenarios. Prayers for strength, courage, and right relationship.
Pray with urgency and Expectation!
