Camp Lake Louise (Boyne Falls, MI) Update
We have had several camps for kids so far this summer and one family camp at Camp Lake Louise in beautiful Northern Michigan on Thumb Lake. Starting out, at 5th/6th grade camp, 16 fatherless kids attended on camperships at no cost to their family. Then, we had 9th/10th grade camp in which 9 kids were on camperships through the ministry. At Senior High Camp (11th/12th/13th), we had 8 campers on camperships. At Family Camp, we encourage single mothers and their children to attend and we had 8-10 such campers on camperships that week. We also fund two Psalm68five counselors to be on resident staff for the whole summer, whose calling was to come along side our fatherless campers, stealthily, and earn the right to share God’s heart for the fatherless. One way we help that process occur is to offer the kids a Prayer Journal for free and ask that if they would copy, meditate and journal on several Bible verses during the week, they can get a camp tee shirt of their choice free. No pressure…they can accept the challenge or just say “not now.” The Verses were Psalm 68:5, John 1:12-13, Romans 8:16, John 3:16-17, Philippians 4:13 and Deuteronomy 10:17-18. This year, Camp Lake Louise called Madison Wolfe as our female Psalm68five counselor, a sophomore at Central Michigan University. Lucas Orosco, who will be an incoming freshman at Ferris State University, was training to be the male Psalm68five counselor. We will be sending highlights of their Camp Reports in a later email.
