Camp Prep!

I remember when rehearsing a play, my mother would tell us, if you don’t hate it by show time, then you didn’t rehears it enough. My dad would say the same thing about learning to play a song.    I am almost to the point of “hating” outer space!  But there is still so much prep work to be done. But secretly, I love the planning and organizing part of camp as much as camp itself!

Space camp is a full adventure camp, where children will not only learn about outerspace, but learn who created it and about the man who came to save all of those who live on planet Earth!

I have received all our craft supplies; Thank you New Harvest Church!!  And as of yesterday, our camper lists are finalized.  Our 3 camps are full. At last count, we had 227 campers and teen volunteers over the course of 3 weeks. We have some great American teams coming.  Some of our team members are even staying for 2 or 3 camps!!

This year, along with our regular Bible camp, we have a camp set up for children from the state orphanages. At this camp, we are not allowed to share a Gospel message; however, we will share Bible stories and God’s love with the children.  The lessons are different from the other camps, in that they will focus on children and young people in the Bible who showed courage: Daniel, David, Esther, Miriam, and the boy who gave his fish and bread to Jesus.

We also for the first time have an English camp. This camp is made up solely of children, who pay to go to camp. We are full and even have a waiting list.  There is a need in Romania not only for English camps, but for CHRISTIAN English camps. We are praying for God to lead us in whatever direction He wants as we look at the possibility of English camps as a source of not only ministry, but a way to raise money for other outreach activities.

We are still in need of 10-14 sponsors for the orphanage camp. Our Gospel camp is fully sponsored.  This is depending on all pledged sponsors follow through.   If you would like to be part of sending a child to camp, please contact me in the comment section or by email: melissaosborne@hotmail.com

Please join us in praying for all 227+ children and teens who will come to camp, along with all the leaders from America and Romania!
