Projects are being completed and new ones are beginning here in Spicewood, TX even in the midst of the current crisis and social distancing. Tomorrow is the last day of this assignment and some will be heading home sometime this next week. Others are staying for another month. This has been an incredible experience and we see God’s hand in this at this time. We know that His plan for us was to be here in this place, at this camp, at this time in history. We could never find a better camp staff than the one here. Much is at stake for them as they see camp registrations and group meetings being cancelled. It is the same for so many businesses and non-profits. The future is clearly very uncertain and jobs are at stake. We pray that salvations are not at stake.
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
One of the projects the Lord placed on my heart was prayer walking this camp each afternoon after we finished our time of work for the project. What a blessing it is to be able to walk and pray for a crisis, a camp, churches, children, schools, and the list goes on. We are praying about staying another month here but are leaning to heading home. This project of prayer walking can continue anywhere we are. Even while we are self-quarantined and social distancing, our wonderful God has called us and equipped us to pray and encourage.
Even though the church buildings may be closed the church is NOT the building. It is us. Let us let our light shine for Jesus and embrace this pause in the fast pace of life and be grateful.
Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18.
