It’s hard to believe that our summer is coming to an end! This week we held our last day camp in Gimli out of Bayview Church. We feel so blessed to have been able to connect with and run a camp in the Gimli area. We had 39 campers attend, have an amazing time, and hear about how they can be filled with hope because of what Jesus has done! We welcome you to pray with us that the seeds planted this week would grow.
We are so so grateful for all of the support we have received from our supporting churches, our staff team, and the larger Interlake community. From providing us with space to run our camps, to making food, to donations of time and money, we could not have made day camps this summer happen without your support. Thank you so much!
Blessings, Brook, Steph, Julia, and Nat
