Ministry updates, devotionals, and more

After much consideration, we have made the difficult decision to not hold our Camp Roberts summer day camp this year. This is not a decision we made lightly. We know the Camp Roberts ministry has a profound impact on the lives of the children we serve. The stories we hear from counselors at the end of every summer, and the testimonies from adults who attended camp as a child affirm this. Since the camp ministry began in 1975, we have never experienced an interruption in summer activities.


Clouds...and Sunshine

The dreary, rainy September morning brought forth the comment, “Such a gloomy day!” A guest in the home came back with this reply, “Yes, but the sun is shining just as brightly as ever—we just can't see it for the clouds.” This thought made the rest of the day seem brighter and more cheerful, as we remembered that the sun really was shining, even though the clouds obscured it from our view.


The Gift that Lasts

“Give the gift for all seasons...the gift that says you care all year long...the ideal gift — a pleasure each month.” Such phrases are designed to promote the idea of a Christmas gift delivered each month during the coming year; perhaps a magazine, candy, a flower arrangement, fruit, or some other welcome present, as a reminder of your thoughtfulness. The concept is good. And not only does the one who receives the gift benefit, but also the giver.


God's Appointments

“And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name; him they compelled to bear his cross.” Matthew 27:32

The man hurrying through the city gate didn't know it but he had an appointment to keep that caused his name to be remembered down through the ages.
