Fellowship Baptist

Today, a group from Fellowship Baptist was scheduled to come and work on the new cabins. Because of the weather, I was fully expecting to receive a call that they were not coming. The call did not come, and they arrived about 9:00. It didn’t take me long to realize that these fellows came to WORK. They worked quickly and efficiently in spite of the snow. By lunch time most of the men were wet from the melting snow, but still in great spirits. After they had the floor on one cabin, they moved to the next. At that point, the camp director (me) did something very DUMB. I left the hoe of the backhoe in the footer while we were going to quickly change the fuel filter. The glass on the fuel filter broke, and the backhoe will not start until we get a new glass. The men could not finish the next cabin with the hoe in the middle of the foundation. Although I was very humbled the men had a great spirit. The men working on the other side of the lake on some electrical wiring in the house continue to work for several more hours. They are already talking about coming back again this year to continue where they left off. Wow, what a blessing.
This picture does not show all the workers. There were others working on the wiring. Thank you Fellowship Baptist.

Working Together

Lynn Peacock graciously brought his 18 horsepower bulldozer to camp. It was amazing what he could accomplish with that 1957 John Deere. He moved LOTS of ground and prepared the parking area for the parents when they arrive. It was a real blessing.
On the final day that Mr. Peacock worked on the property, we asked if he could move a large stump. We had already tried to move it with our backhoe, but it was too large for the hoe. Although he tried to move it with his bulldozer, he was unable to make any progress. Finally, Nathan pulled the stump with the backhoe while Mr. Peacock pushed the stump with his bulldozer. Together they were able to move the stump to the desired location.
As I thought about them working together, I thought about our working relationship. Many of you have told us that you are praying for us, and that has been a huge encouragement. Some days the challenges seem overwhelming, but I am convinced that the Lord hears and responds to the prayers of God’s people. If anything of eternal value happens on this camp property, it will because of God’s Spirit. Zachariah 4:6 states “not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.” Thank you for working with us as we seek to make an impact upon lives for eternity. We sincerely appreciate your prayer support.
