Crunchy Leaves. Steamy Breath.

We have had a busy and fruitful fall season here at HPC, and we are excited about the lives we have been able to intersect with by God’s grace. The first five weeks after summer camp were back-to-back rental groups that kept us on our toes, but we are thankful to report that many heard the gospel and many came to Christ. It was also a unique opportunity to see other cultures worship our God.

Along with caring for rental groups, we have begun the recruitment process for next summer’s staff, starting at Bob Jones University. Last week, Shannon and Gil had the opportunity of interacting with many students who showed interest in spending their summers serving in camp ministry here at High Point. Standing at our HPC booth, meeting individually with prospective staff, and reuniting with former staff filled their two days in Greenville. We are grateful to God for the opportunity as well as for safe travels.

Upcoming recruiting trips include a visit to Northland International University as well as Clearwater Christian College and others. As we approach the recruiting time knowing that God is already preparing hearts to serve him this next summer, we are reminded to be constant in prayer that God would direct us to the right individuals and that He would give the wisdom needed during the hiring process.

We are in the final stages of preparation for our two big fall events: FallFest and FamilyFest. FallFest, as was laid out in our last post, is a day of exciting activities for 7th-12th grade teens taking place on Friday the 16th of November from 5-10 p.m. For more information, visit our website. FamilyFest is the following day from 11 a.m.- 2 p.m. and will include festive fall activities for all ages. More information is located here.

We ask for your prayers as we prepare for fall festivities, winter retreats, and as we continue to raise support for our Pavilion Project. The encouragement and support of prayer is invaluable to us and we thank you!

Rain and Colors (or lack thereof)

It’s pouring at camp today, and from what I hear it’s supposed to do this all week. It’s actually a nice change. Definitely makes being inside behind a computer more justifiable. Maybe Fall is finally here. Leaves are definitely dropping, but I’m not seeing the colors I was hoping for. Maybe the colors are coming, or maybe I just can’t see them because I’m colorblind, who knows. While I’m on the topic, let me tell you about the epiphany I had this summer while I was in Israel talking with a friend on the trip, who is also colorblind. He started mentioning things he couldn’t see, and I realized those were the same things I could never see, but never put the two together. For example, I can never tell if I’m sunburned until it hurts, I can’t tell if meat is pink or red, and when people wear those stupid shirts with the colorblind test charts I always ask what their shirt means and they just laugh at me. Now I know why.

Anyway, apparently quite a few of you agreed with my post yesterday, so I’ll see if I can come up with some more. That last one was just so obvious that it made it easy. Guess I could always do myself, that seems to be an obvious one too.

Everyone at camp is busy working on recruiting stuff. Tim’s been helping me learn Photoshop and put together a pretty sweet Adventure Camp postcard. If you have any good ideas about promoting A. Camp, or even just the camp in general, send them my way. If I don’t get the A. Camp attendance up next summer I’m gonna get fired. Seriously.
