3.2 miles in 2 hours!

Remember the last time you sat in traffic… crawling along at a snails pace… for hours?

Well, at Shepherds Camp we call that more fun that a person should be allowed to have.  Hayrides are a camper favorite at Shepherds Camp.  This year our hayrides are extra special because they fit right in with our western theme - WANTED: a person after God’s own heart.

Yesterday we were blessed with abundant sunshine, warm weather and a hay wagon full of fresh hay bails.

It’s the first week of camp and our new mini golf course has been an exciting and accessible addition to Shepherds Camp!

God told me at Walmart

We are in the midst of Staff Training, preparing for a full summer of ministry here at Arrowhead. 

We have a diverse group of staff from all over the country who are excited to call Arrowhead their home, job, hang out, ministry… life for the next few months.  On the first night I was hanging out with some of the new staff, listening to stories of where they live, how they got to camp and their expectations of the summer.

Breanna (from South Carolina) exclaimed that God told her at Walmart… that Arrowhead was where He wanted her this summer.  While standing in line at the check out a friend asked her if, “she was going to serve at that camp, Shepherds, this summer?”  Breanna had been praying and thinking about the opportunity and as she thought about her response… God gave her a confirming desire to say, “Yes!”

Breanna explained it with a quiet and firm confidence.  God had called her to Arrowhead this summer. 

I am excited to see how God uses this place and this summer to impact the lives of our staff as they in turn impact the lives of our campers.  We have had a great week of Staff Training and we are looking forward to the start of camp on Monday morning!
