Harvest Time Bible Camp

We three couples had a wonderful and fulfilling time volunteering at Harvest Time Bible Camp. The purpose for volunteering at Christian camps is to help get them ready for the campers coming in for summer recreation. They also need spaces ready for the young counselors coming in for the summer to have a place to stay.

The men worked 4 days a week for 7 hours a day. We women worked half a day unless we needed to finish up a special project. Our day began at 7:30 a.m. with devotions together and then at 8:00 a.m. we went to work.

The men stayed busy making bunk beds out of beautiful wood. We ladies were so excited to see the first bunk bed finished. It was an amazing accomplishment. The men finished six bunk beds, made six closets, cleaned out a large swimming pool and put two coats of paint on it.

Scott was able to draw up plans for the closets. Much was learned after they finished the first one. Ed did finishing work on the bunk beds to make them look more inviting. Lamar stayed busy working with Scott and Ed and made sure all the necessary equipment was in place where it was needed.

We ladies sewed a lot of curtains. Toni was good to cut out the material and iron it for us. Mila sewed most of the curtains. I had to leave the second week to stay with my daughter, Sheree, who needed knee surgery. She only lives an hour away, so it was perfect timing for me to leave the camp and go help her. God knew we would be close by at the time my daughter needed help. His timing is perfect.

We ladies also did some cleaning in the snack shop and the store where all the shirts and hats and etc. are kept.

The camp is beautiful and watching the horses run around was a delight. The campers are allowed to ride the horses. The horses are trained well and are very gentle. Our dog, Nick, enjoyed walking in the woods and running with the horses. The horses would go nose to nose with him and seemed to enjoy his company.

The camp is in the mountains of North Carolina and close by is a beautiful waterfall. Those who could walk the one mile to see it said it was worth the trip. I enjoyed the pictures.

I had just had hip surgery a couple of months before so my walking was limited. The head of the camp allowed us to use one of their work carts to get back and forth. The road to work was very hilly and walking was not a way for me. The cart was greatly used and we are thankful for their thoughtfulness.

We could tell by the attitudes of the Staff how much they love the campers. They do all they can to make sure as many campers come and have fun and learn more of God’s love.

It is truly a pleasure to travel and do this kind of volunteering work. Our next project is in Oregon hosting a camp. We have been asked to be there for six weeks. This will be a new experience for Lamar and me as we have never just hosted a camp. We’re looking forward to seeing what God has planned for us as we travel way up to the Northwest. Lamar and I are retired and our retirement is a busy one, but we must keep going and serving our Lord in what He has planned for us.

Thank you for your support and most of all for your prayers. We believe in the power of prayer.

How blessed we are to be a part of Burgess Road Baptist Church with our wonderful Pastor and the people there. It is like our second home. We’re blessed beyond measure.
