Happy Campers

Dear family and friends;    Thank you so much for your generous support which has enabled us to hold camps here this summer.   For our Renault Sunday school kids it has been an amazing time of growth, relationships and fun.

The campers have been well behaved so far, and it has been great to get to know them better.

This past week, the camp was for the “older kids” from the Renault Sunday school and we were amazed to learn that about 1/2 of the kids at camp have been coming to Sunday school since it began almost 12 years ago.

Three young men; Joseph, Berlin and Stanley made the decision to be baptized and we were thankful that Pastor Alneve, the president of our mission was available to come and baptize them.  It was an amazing moment and even this morning at Sunday school we had several requests from young people now wanting to be baptized.

Deb has done a great job of keeping the kitchen running during the camps. She has employed the Angels volleyball girls and they are doing a great job.    

All of our girl counselors are also Angels who have been with us for 8 years now.   In the picture they are getting ready to play soccer with a girls team.

We are very thankful for our mission Harvest International which continues to support and stand with us.    They just sent us a container full of “Manna Packs” which are the rice and soy packets that we give to kids each Sunday.

Thanks again for your prayers and support.   Tomorrow, Lord willing we will be receiving another 200 kids for another week of camp.   We are very thankful to the Lord for all that He has done, and we are thankful that things have calmed down in Haiti for now.   

Bye for now,    Love Rod, Deb and Katie
