July & August 2012
Greetings from Lamar and Dian Enfinger
Our latest projects were during July and August at Miracle Mountain Ranch in Spring Creek, Pennsylvania. This is a wonderful ranch for campers and for apprentices. Apprentices are graduates that live at the ranch for 1 or 2 years to gain credit for college by learning all the needs of a ranch which includes taking care of horses, working in the cafeteria, classes in Bible study, being counselors for the campers, and all the different needs of running a ranch while learning more about our Lord Jesus Christ and how they can be used in a mighty way by serving our Lord and seeking His will in their lives.
Each week in July was filled with different groups of campers. There was a lot of laughter, riding of the horses, and enjoying all the activities there. Many souls were saved and the some of the campers grew closer to the Lord. They seemed to enjoy being there so much. August was a month of graduating and lots of volunteers staying busy helping with construction.
The MMAP men stayed very busy. Lamar was coordinator of the MMAP men. His job was to keep materials supplied and work with the other men. They accomplished adding 2' of overhang on the roof area, boxed in the eaves, and built and hung two barn doors. They also made and built a book case in the Assembly Hall, built a 9' X 9' addition on the garage to house an air compressor. The final job was building a fence on two sides of the Ranch Cemetery.
We women did some proof reading for the paperwork for the graduates. It included checking all the scripture to make sure it was correctly written down and if the names of the graduates were spelled correctly.
We were blessed by our time there and was even able to stay in a caboose one Friday evening that had been converted into a motel room and the next day we rode on an old train that squealed and squeaked for an hour up and down the track. It was fun and the scenery was great. We also enjoyed the many beautiful deer running all around and the tiny little chipmunks.
How wonderful it is to be able to continue to serve our Lord in this capacity. Thanks so much for your support and especially all the prayers sent our way. Trust and obey, for there's no other way, to be happy in JESUS, but to trust and obey.
