Held April 25-26, 2014
The cold temps did not keep the Michigan women from coming to Lake Ellen Bible Camp near Crystal Falls, Michigan! They were tucked into cozy rooms and comfy great areas to learn more of “Loving God’s Abundant Life” from John 10:10.
Carol Mackey was the MC and had us giggling despite the recent loss of her mom. Much reflection took place as we “examined ourselves”, allowed the Lord to do “heart surgery” on us, learned how to study the Bible on our own, shared how the Lord abundantly blesses us as we spend time with Him and learned how we can, in turn, share those blessings with others.
One of the participants wrote:
“Thanks so much for all you have shared with us here at Lake Ellen. It was no accident that I came this weekend. All you have shared from God’s word and what was on your heart has blessed me and was just what I needed to hear. God is good! I am so glad that you and your friends were willing to give of yourselves to encourage and bless me more than you know. Your love for Jesus and a desire that others do too radiates from within you. My life was so blessed in a mighty way today. God bless you as you continue the work for the sake of the Kingdom.”
“Thank you so much for coming all this way to spend today with us! What a blessing to be among sisters in the Lord, and be encouraged and challenged. We are in a rough season of life, and I often find my “tank” dry. To be in God’s presence without the stressors, spending time drawing strength from His Word is absolutely essential, to be able to go back and face the battle head-on! God IS good, and it will be HE that brings us through. Thank you so much!”
And to that we say, “To God be the glory!”
