Dear WRC Family,

Summer Camps are going well with 6 new Believers, 2 re-dedications and 2 Baptized over the past 5 camp weeks. Campers have heard accurate presentations of the gospel of Christ Jesus.

As we enter the final week it is amazing what God has done…providing this property with many facilities already in place, construction of a restroom and showers structure, 6 cabins, above ground swimming pool with deck and fence, archery and riflery ranges, amphitheater, primitive camping area, water and electric lines, trials…much more. We’ve had 4 dads take a week off of work to come serve as Servant-Leaders. Several kitchen staff volunteers have been here weekly and recently a Cook has joined our staff. We praise God that He has provided a God focused, dedicated summer staff as well as encouragement, energy, wisdom and strength to the CWR permanent staff.

July 22-28 CWR will host the Hill Country Bible Church – NW Global Outreach (GO) Bastrop mission trip with 71 junior high students, adults, and summer interns. They will be involved in service projects in the Bastrop area (including CWR) during the day, then Backyard Bible Clubs in the Bastrop neighborhoods in the evenings followed by worship at CWR.

Please pray for Camp Wilderness Ridge (CWR), as follows:

    • Praise for God’s provisions and protection over the 6 weeks of summer camp.
    • Praise for the rains…may He keep it coming! Our sincere thankfulness for answered prayer.
    • Each camper will continue to grow to have a relationship or build on his relationship with Christ Jesus.
    • Pray about what God would have you do, and for our needs to be met…building camp facilities. God knows whose live(s) you will impact with your gift.
    • Each staff meets their financial target amount so we can focus on Summer Camps, 2012
    • Financial needs…Corners of the Field funds for campers and summer staff raising support.
    • God’s direction, holiness, wisdom and unity for the CWR Board of Directors and staff so that all decisions and actions bring Christ Jesus honor and glory.

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Christ Jesus,
Ron Hunt

Camp Director
