Today was another exciting day as we approach the start of staff training and summer camp. Larry Wolfe from Jersey Shore left his home at 4:30 this morning. He drove to Elizabethtown and picked up the mobile kitchen at Gene Wenger Meats and Fine Food. By about 12:30, he arrived at the camp property. He skillfully pulled the trailer across the breast of the lake and backed it into the prepared spot. After he toured the property, ate lunch, and set up the trailer; he returned to Jersey shore. A special THANK-YOU to Gene Wenger Meats for providing the mobile kitchen and to Larry Wolfe for transporting it.
Just before one of the winter retreats in January, I went to the mailbox and found a $1,000 check from Dublin Mills. Because I was not familiar with the church, I did a bit of research and found that Brother Sam Stoey was the pastor, and his daughter was at camp last summer. Every month since January, we continue to receive significant checks from this church. In May, I had the opportunity to present the ministry at Dublin Mills. Pastor Stoey and his church selected this past Thursday, Friday, and Saturday as the dates for a mission trip to Servant’s Heart Camp. Throughout the three days there were almost 30 workers here from Dublin Mills. The group worked very hard and many significant tasks were accomplished throughout the weekend. Pastor Stoey was a great example of a very diligent worker throughout the weekend. Here he is on the John Deere tractor with his John Deere Shirt. Thank you Dublin Mills. You are a blessing.
A few other churches also joined Dublin Mills this past weekend. They were also a tremendous blessing. On Saturday, we had 48 people working on the property. It was a joy to see many jobs being completed.
