Thank you

This morning’s post is to express my appreciation and to give you one last update on something that started out almost by accident. About three weeks ago, I mentioned in a post called Camp that there was a larger than normal number of would-be campers this year whose families were unable to afford the camp fees. I had not consciously planned to include that information; it just sort of wrote itself from my fingers to the screen. I looked at it and decided to leave it there to see what would happen.

The first call came in immediately. I briefly mentioned the situation again the next week in a post entitled Camp II, once again as an add-on. More people made enquiries and pledged to help send a kid to camp. A week or so later, I wrote the post Camperships. This was really to express my appreciation for that response, and to provide a slightly fuller description of the situation. Once again, an immediate response occurred.

What an amazing group of generous disciples you are! As of now, we have received enough money to cover the camp fees of every child or youth who has requested assistance! I am not really surprised, but I am overwhelmed. Thank you sounds so inadequate to express the gratitude we feel, but I don't know what else to say.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!

In the past, local congregations and the Frank Clifton fund have helped send kids to camp, but this year they were unable to fill the gap. You have stepped into that breach and done the job.

If you are one who provided the means to make this happen, I want you to know that you have made a huge difference in the life of a child. I have personally met many of these children, so trust me when I say that you have done a very good thing.

With heart-felt appreciation,

Carman

  1. It is things just like this that shows me how The Lord works through us in everyday life, To give the chance for more people to come to know The word of God.
    It also once again reveals to me why Community Of Christ Members are so close to my heart and why I cherish them so.

    Thank you very much to all who were able to help those young kids.

    God Bless You All
