Greetings from Camp Peniel!
Well, we have been reminded that it is indeed fall, with a little bit of needed rain today and temps in the low 40’s! Hope this update finds you enjoying sunshine, rain, or maybe even snow!
Do you remember the “firsts” in your life? First day of school, first job, first heartbreak, first car, first child, first grandchild…and the list can go on. In Acts 3 we find Peter and John experiencing the first opportunity for the Lord to perform a miracle through them. Walking to the temple in the mid-afternoon they came upon a life-long paraplegic who begged them to give him some money. Their response is not one of temporary relief but one of long-term, life-giving hope. “…Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” Acts 3:6b And that is exactly what the man did. The first apostolic miracle occurred when Jesus’ name was spoken, the directive “walk” was given and then the man jumped up as he was immediately healed! Can you imagine what it would have been like to have been there for that? Amazing! Is there something the Lord is asking you to do for Him that may be a first for you? Asking Christ to be your Lord & Savior, sharing your faith with someone else, standing for what you believe? What is your “first” that He’s calling you to do?
Save the Date! Saturday, Dec. 12th we will host our free Christmas Family Fun Day at camp! More details to come but we don’t want you to miss out!
Come join the students attending Adventure School at Camp Peniel! Education packed with fun, Christ-centered adventures, what a great combo!

If you or someone you know is interested in serving as a counselor this summer we would love to hear from you! We’ll be having a summer staff recruitment weekend Dec. 4-6 at camp which is a great opportunity to learn more about camp and how the Lord can use you to have an eternal impact in the lives of campers! If you have questions or would like more information please contact Grayson Davis!
High School Weekend and the final M/D Horse Retreat for the year will be Nov. 20-22. We have systems in place to do our best to curb the spread of COVID-19 and allow campers to experience the Lord face to face through Christ-centered adventures! Here is just one comment from one of the ladies attending Ladies Camp, “the best Ladies’ Camp (we) ever experienced-was AWESOME!” Head to the website to register for great opportunities to be encouraged by the Lord and make lasting memories!
Camp’s annual Golf Tournament will be held Oct. 31st (this Saturday) at Delaware Springs Golf Course! We’d love for you to become a sponsor and/or join us for a great day of golf as we seek to raise money for camp where campers hear the Gospel and grow deeper in the Lord. Head to the website for more information and to register!
Thank you for all of the prayers and support for camp! Your continued prayers are so needed and any gift you share partners with us in providing opportunities where God will transform lives! Let’s make a point follow Him to our “firsts” and I’ll see ‘ya Tuesday!
Fixed on the Cross,
Brian
