At Lakewood Retreat, our goal is to use the facilities to promote the transformational message of the Gospel. Even though we are just a small part in this transformation work, nothing thrills us more than receiving a note from a camper expressing the change that took place in their heart. No doubt, every life is changed to some degree during there stay here, but occasionally, a camper finds the need to pen some extra special words of encouragement.
In reality, many of you take part in the ministry of Lakewood Retreat. Some of you have given financially to make Lakewood Retreat a reality. Others have donated supplies or time so that the facilities could be well-kept. Still others have taken part as prayer warriors–keeping the camp and the staff in your prayers. For those who have taken part of the ministry of Lakewood Retreat, these thank you notes are as much addressed to you as they are to us. We have all partnered together to advance the Gospel in the lives of our campers.
Every year we have opportunities to serve summer campers who are not financially able to pay for camp. This year is no different. We have already been made aware of some who are just not able to financially afford to come. These campers rely on the generous donations of sponsors. If you would like to help take part in providing a way for a summer camper to come to Lakewood, let us know. You can email the office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 352-796-4097.
