Hello all current and former staff and counselors! We have decided at camp to start a weekly blog every Tuesday to keep the former and current staff and counselors connected through our website. So tune in every Tuesday to find out what new is happening at camp and what God has placed on our hearts. Feel free to comment!
How many of these staff members and counselors can you name? Each of the people pictured above has had a lasting legacy in camp, whether they know it or not. Without Bobby Brown, Caroline Eichhorn would have never been able to save children in three feet of water. Without Leah McRae, Heather Moses wouldn't know where to file binders of paperwork from the past twenty years. Without Charlie Spencer's flowing blonde locks and tan Josh Cobb wouldn't know what to do at camp. Without David McGinley, Jon Davis would have no ground work in how to be the manliest man at camp.
In all seriousness, without the work of all the people who have served at camp through the years, camp would not be what it is today. However, I would venture to guess that most of us can only name around ten people from these pictures at most. These people, who in their time were essential to camp and the ministry that we do, are mostly all but unknown to the current staff and campers. However, the legacy of all those who have worked at camp, whether they were as important to the ministry as Lloyd Powell or simply volunteered their weekend raking leaves, they have all played a part in the ministry of the Lord.
1 Corinthians 13:8 &13
(8)Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. (13) And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.
All of the things that we have done through the years will pass away. Many of the memories are already beginning to fade. However, the love that we have shared to children at this great piece of land that God has blessed us with will have eternal consequences.
So as former and current staff/counselors, let us live by these three: faith, hope, and love.
The greatest of these is love.
