From the Camp Director:
I'm so glad that we are in March. I'm ready for Spring and to get rid of the snow.
About the beginning of March, all of us who are weary of Winter start discussing how we can’t wait for Spring weather to get here. We get teased a bit by a few warm days that don’t stay for long. We struggle to accept that there could be plenty of days with cold winds, snow, and ice before Spring weather takes over.
I'm looking forward to buds, leaves, and blossoms to start popping out. In spite of today’s weather, I know one thing for sure – Spring weather is coming.
If you’ve read Ecclesiastes 3, you know it speaks of how there is a season for everything. These verses mention a time to plant and a time to harvest, but go on to include many other aspects of life. Just as sure as I am that Spring weather will finally be here, I am also sure that God’s promises are true. When I go through wintery seasons in my life, I hold on to those promises by faith.
Just like the Spring, we here at Hanging Rock are excited to see new things apear as well: things like a remodeled girls's dorm, a new and improved zipline, a new registration system, fresh paint on buildings and fresh gravel put on the driveway and parking lots. All of these things are exciting, but we do all of these things for the purpose of Changed Lives! This year as kids and students arrive to camp new relationships will be formed, the most important relationship will be established with Christ as their Savior. OH how I like the Spring!
Spring is a great season to come and volunteer and help us get ready for a great Summer. Begin now by inviting kids and students to come to camp to experience Christ.
Spring is Coming! Praise the Lord!
