January at Camp Berea

Thank you for your prayers while we were at Camp Berea! We were able to serve there for a little more than 3 weeks. David fixed the heating systems in several of the cabins, repaired the chair dollies (to move the chairs) and fixed several of the table games to get them ready for use during the retreats.

Please pray for Camp Berea as they welcome teens to hear the Gospel during the weekend retreats this winter. They have many safety protocols in place so that they can continue safely operating this vital ministry. While we were there, the retreat had about 60 guests (as opposed to the usual 400 on previous years). Even with a smaller group the youth leaders reported positive conversations with the teens in response to the messages.

We are hoping February will include another shorter trip to New Hampshire for David as well as serving at a food ministry through Reading City Church. Lord-willing, we plan to be out serving at ministries full-time this spring once we can safely drive again without risk of snow/ice. We hold all of our plans loosely in these uncertain times and go where and when the Lord wills. In the meantime we will serve locally and do a few more projects to get the trailer finished up.

Here is a quick video showing some of the projects and retreats as well as activities Rachel and the kids did while David was hard at work:

Thank you for walking alongside us in the work God has called us to!
