Camp Deer Run is a special place to me because it is where many individuals of all ages are able to experience the joy of the Kingdom without distractions of everyday life. With just the basic accommodations (good food and simple shelter), deep-felt relationships and the love of Christ are profoundly known.
One of my favorite memories is taking my Men’s 5 cabin out to slosh around in the swamp while we busted up a beaver dam. While on this hip-high water hike, we talked about life, laughed, and loved on each other through encouragement. One of those young men in my cabin on this walk was Mr. Ty Ford, who is now having a profound impact in the Kingdom as Camp Director.
Prayer: “My Father, may you continue to bless the small individual conversations that happen each day throughout camp. May they be full of encouragement, love, acceptance, and you.”
