This past Thursday through Saturday, a group from Dublin Mills were on the property to help with various work projects. They worked hard and accomplished many tasks. They took down the guys shower tent, and also the dining tent. It was almost sad to see the dining tent come down after eating in that tent for over three months. In addition to many other projects, they also started clearing the playing field on the “camp” side of the lake. They cut an amazing amount of wood and burned huge piles of brush and branches. We would love to use a portion of the new playing filed this coming summer, but we still have an unbelievable amount of work to finish the field. Thanks Dublin Mills for all your hard work!
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.
