I Heart Camp

I have been busy, busy, BUSY preparing for the Big Sky Bible Camp Summer Kick-Off. It's tonight, 4:30, be there or be square. Food, games, auction goodies - we've got it all. It is also a great time to promote the non-profit that I adore.

Good thing The Diaper Diaries is having a big 'ol bloggy carnival so I can share my undying love for this Camp.

It was founded in 1947 by two ladies who traveled west, listened to God, and had hearts moved with compassion for the children in Montana. Now Big Sky Bible Camp hosts over 500 campers a summer and many more through retreat groups that come during the other 3 seasons.

Check out the website and if you feel moved to be involved you can donate here (at our parent missions page). Make sure to let them know that it is for Big Sky Bible Camp! This year we face new challenges with more needy families applying for scholarships and a HUGE staff turnover since, well, I had a baby and several other couples retired and moved on to different ministries.

Pray for the staff as they desire to share the love of Christ and power of the Gospel with hundreds of kids in the next three months. Pray that we will have all the staff we need - especially for our High School week and the two weeks of Camp Promise (Camp Promise weeks are for people with disabilities and we almost triple our normal operating staff numbers). Pray for our backpackers as they head into the wilderness. Pray for our speakers as they share the Truth with these kids. Pray for our full time staffers as they seek God's wisdom and endurance (as well as financial support from people like you!).

And, if you are ever in Northwest Montana ... stop by for a visit.

***Please excuse all spelling and grammar and run on sentences...etc. I am so busy! And in such a HURRY! I wish I could write a more heart wrenching post about all that is great about Big Sky, but that will have to be another day. You can see a few pictures of my time as a Camp Director at Big Sky here. Thanks for stopping by. I also don't know what the deal is with the weird font colors... I am seriously fritzing.
