In the Heat of Summer

I am writing this at 5:15 a.m. Monday morning. KRMG radio weather said it is 74 degrees outside and they expect a high of 95 with strong winds today. That ought to dry things out some so many of us can finally mow our pastures that were previously yards. Our farmers have begun the process of laying up hay for the coming winter…and the cycle of life continues. Summer arrived yesterday {on the calendar} and sure feels like it this morning. I did some mental gymnastics Saturday and came to the conclusion that we have around eighty days before the weather break that usually occurs around September tenth. Come on September!
June has long been our month for VBS and this June was no different! I am always amazed at the effort and joy that comes with VBS. This year we saw 21 adults and 18 youth numbered with the sixty plus children that were here each day. High energy, excited, wound up, loud and hungry children filled our buildings along with the sound of construction going on in the auditorium. The sounds of life in the buildings always excite me and fill my heart with joy that we are still part of God’s plan. I so appreciate all of you who participated in the planning, giving, serving and praying for our effort in reaching children for Christ. Your participation made the difference in their lives this past week. Thank you Jeanie Ross for heading it all up, making it one of the best ever! And Carolyn, I can’t get that theme song out of my head! You can see the statistics on the back side of this newsletter.
Camp is next on the schedule. We are planning a time beginning Sunday evening July 12 and ending Friday Morning July 17 for our children and youth who have finished fifth grade through senior high. We will spend the week right here in our facilities with Bible classes and preaching emphasized with singing and all kind of fun, food, games, swimming and fellowship! We are in the midst of planning a great camp with Daniel Keely preaching, Tony Atzbach leading our singing {Tony was our first Music minister here at Rehoboth} and his wife Charlie leading the cooking in the kitchen and both helping as sponsors. Of course I will have my part in the process with an eye to Spiritual renewal and Salvation as our goal for all who attend. I hope you will participate with us in prayer, help and by coming if you are the proper age group. {We would delight in some of our previous graduates coming along side as sponsors}.
Pray for our nation as the Supreme Court of the United States rules on God’s Word on marriage. I would hate to be in their place as they consider changing what God has established from time immemorial and fear for our nation as judgment is held in sway…
