From the Camp Director,
Isn't God good? While we live in challenging times, we must also remember that God is not bound by times or seasons, and He is STILL a good God!
Praise is something that we ALL can do and shouldn't be held back just because we aren't on the “victory side” of things yet.
Often, our problem as human beings is that we ONLY praise when we see the answer, but quite often in the Bible, we see how Praise should go first!
Sometime read 2 Chronicles 20:21-23 - In this portion of scripture, the army was poised and ready, but Jehoshaphat said, “hold on” because there's something far more critical than swords and spears, horses and chariots, and it's called Praise!
I would encourage you to stop waiting until every prayer is answered the way you feel it should be, and begin to walk and praise God in ADVANCE of the answer! Pray and Praise in Faith!
The Bible lets us know that without Faith it is impossible to please God! Hebrews 11:1 & 6. My favorite scripture verse.
We give praise for the way God has been working here at Hanging Rock and we have Faith that God will continue to work here at Hanging Rock.
- We give praise for the volunteers God will bring to help us finish the Girl's dorm bathrooms.
- We give praise for those that will support us financially to help with our Great is Thy Faithfulness Campaign.
- We give praise for our Event Coordinators recruiting faculty and developing schedules for the camp sessions they plan.
I could go on an on with exapmles of how God is going to work here at Hanging Rock this year just like he has done the last 75 years. Our God is Faithful and we give him praise! AMEN!
We hope you will take time to read this newsletter and sign your students up for retreats in February and find ways you can serve and give through this month. We give PRAISE for you in advance!
