The words ‘seasons’ and ‘transition’ have been plentiful around camp lately. With the arrival of spring, on the calendar if not in the weather, comes a natural change of season in camp ministry. More staff come on board and preparations for the summer program kick into high gear. We added 15 staff to our community in the first week of May, bringing our staff family to a nice round total of 33 for this season. God is at work at His camp in the Valley and in the lives of the people He has chosen to place here in this time.
During the first week of our Spring Staff season we chose to spend an extensive amount of time in worship and prayer, asking God to guide and direct our team to prepare for summer in the way that He has asked us to. It has been an exciting 3 weeks as God answers those prayers and moves in the hearts of our staff. Through those prayers we have been preparing in confidence for the ‘harvest season’ of summer camp that God has prepared for us.
Please pray for our team as we prepare for our summer season. Pray that God will move in our hearts, that He will grant us the courage to be obedient to His Holy Spirit, and that we will be faithful in the Ministry that He has called us to.

Ben Wiebe: Music Ministry
