Join us in welcoming the newest members of our Summer Team for 2015, Gabrielle and Amy. “Gabi” has worked with us for several years at quite a number of Handi-Camps. She’s now a Home School grad, studying at Ivy Tech Community College. Amy is studying at the University of Kentucky, majoring in the Special Needs area. Both will join us in May, as they finish their Spring Term.
Both are quite excited about what God has in store for us, as a team, as we get into the frenetic pace that the summer brings…with the majority of the Handi-Camps being scheduled during the summer months, our 3 major benefit events, a Special Needs Prom event, the summer HIS Time events…including the annual HIS Time Picnic, and the overall increased activity at the Power House.
Our theme for 2015 is wrapped up in one word, “Speak;” with our theme song being, “Word of God, Speak” (by: Mercy Me). We’re both excited and, at the same time, overwhelmed with such a theme. God’s Word, the Bible, gives us all of the info, inspiration, and framework that we need to put together the Handi-Campers’ Journal, and other program components. The challenge will be in packing it all in to time allotted for each summer program.
So…we invite you to join us in serving for a session (or two…or more). Camper registrations are coming in earlier than usual this year, along with workers that have served with us in the past. Stop by our website, check out the schedule, get a registration form to fill out, and get on the roster for a Handi-Camp…or more.
And, join us in praying that we are attentive to God’s guidance. Because we are part of the human race, we can easily cave in to the, “Take Charge!!” attitude that so permeates our culture; that we must make all choices, establish boundaries, guide, lead, dictate the course of every action, follow detailed plans of action…and generally become infuriated or anxious beyond words if doesn’t all go as we plan or anticipate. However…the Word of God doesn’t speak in support of such a cultural imperative. In all of our “busy-ness,” I can quickly lose sight of the wisdom in words like, “Be still and know…” — “Submit your plans to Me…” — “Take my yoke upon you…” — “Ask, and it shall be given…” — and fundamental to all of those guiding principles: “Follow me…”
Thanks, in advance, for lifting us up. And, we’ll enjoy hearing from you.
