During the live auction we have a time where we auction camper scholarships for the coming summer. It is an incredibly moving, Spirit-filled, beautiful time. To see God move in the generosity of His people to provide a way for kids to come to camp - where they will experience His love and learn of His sacrifice for them. I am teary just typing about it. I was most definitely teary watching it happen. In less than 15 minutes, $46,000 was given in camper scholarships! The song Grateful by Hezekiah Walker has been flowing from my heart for days. The total received from the auction was just over $68,000! Praise God for his favor and provision! Praise God for allowing me yet another opportunity to witness His faithfulness and mighty hand. Praise God for the children who will be able to attend camp because of the giving of others! Here are a couple of camper testimonies from last summer. Lives are changed at camp!
I have not used this blog as a platform for giving before, but if you were unable to attend the auction and would like to give toward camper scholarships you can still do so. Many of the families who come are unable to pay the full cost. Camp actively seeks out children who would not be able to attend otherwise and does not turn children away who are in financially difficult situations. $300 will sponsor one child for one week of quality Christian camping and any amount will help us to provide assistance to families. If you would like to be a part of giving camper scholarships you can send your check to:
3212 125th Ave
Allegan, MI 49010Please indicate that your giving is for camper scholarships. You will receive a tax-deductible receipt and, at the end of the summer, a thank you letter written by the youth you sponsored.
