As the leaves fall to the ground that will soon be visited by snow, Camp transitions into the off-season. We have been so blessed to see many faces this year, some old and some new. Although it is always a little sad to not see cars pull in the gate one after another, this season is a great time for our staff to regroup and work on how to serve even better. We are all hard at work applying the different gifts God has given us. Man, we are blessed with a wonderful full time staff family.
During the off season, the entire full time staff meets once a week. Each meeting begins with a devotional that allows us to focus on why we are doing this camp thing. This morning, Bill shared the simple yet life changing message of 1 John 3:1. "See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. (1 John 3:1 NIV)". God's great love that is so freely given to us in abundance is so overwhelming that we just have to share it. It is love that motivates those at Camp to serve. Don't just hold on to that great love, but share it and God will do great things.
