Way Ahead of You


Sometimes the Lord answers our prayers before we can even ask. I saw an example of this last month when a few of our staff members and I had the opportunity to attend a training conference for Christian camp leaders.


One of the seminars I attended was on the topic of camp stores and snack shops—how to make them beneficial for campers and for the ministry. The seminar leader suggested the idea of serving slushies to campers as a cool, refreshing treat. Kids love them, they are perfect for summer, and they are much less expensive than sodas.


I thought adding slushies to our snack options at the swimming pool area would be a great idea, but I wondered how much it would cost to purchase a slushie machine. I imagined that they would be pretty expensive. I decided to look into it as soon as I had the time, but God was way ahead of me.


Just two days after the conference ended, I received a text message from one of our long-time supporters and volunteers. He had a brand-new slushie machine available for free and wondered if we could use it! After checking into a few details, we answered with a resounding yes! He delivered it just a few days later.


Time after time, year after year, we have seen the Lord work in miraculous ways like this. He anticipates every need we have, and He works through people like you to deliver the miracle.


As summer camp approaches, our needs are great, and our prayers are numerous, but we don't face this alone. God is actively at work through His people to answer those prayers...sometimes before we even ask.
