July: Celebrations, Camps, and Connections!

God Bless the USA! At a reunion the other day someone started to lead out in "God Bless America" and I was shocked when someone else said, "No one is going to know that song," thankfully it continued and most everyone did know it.
I have always been patriotic and I believe Christians should be the best citizens. As thoughts of leaving this land I love for Cameroon wash over me I realize that even this wonderful country is not our true home, we are citizens of another country, Heaven. Now, while we are here below, may we do our best to be lights to all around us and keep Christ as the centerpiece of this gift we call America.
July 8th Drew will be a delegate for our church at general conference then July 9th-18th will be Family Camp at Rock Lake Bible Methodist Campgrounds begins. We are looking forward to it so much. When we come with seeking hearts God never fails to show up! Drew will be running the sound booth again this year, and I look forward to helping him there.
The following week we are looking forward to heading down to Illinois to be a part of the Crusader's Family Camp. Drew was blessed to meet some gentlemen who were part of the crew that roofed the orphanage in Cameroon and we look forward to getting to know them better.
What a full month but we look forward to what God is going to do.

We will be praying for you this next week. It will be different at the Cabin this year, but we understand how important this next camp is for you. Hope to see you before you leave.
