Dear Friend/s of LaMoine Camp,

What a difference a year can make! Last year at this time, I was writing to you about the “winter blues” as I looked out my office window at 18” of snow. I must say, I prefer this year over last.

Looking back at last year’s February thank you receipt letter made me think to look back even further to see what other recent Februarys looked like in the ministry of our camp.

  •  2006 – We were consistently coming up short on our loan payment. We now have no debt.
  •  2007 – We just needed $1,500 more to purchase all new mattresses for our cabins.
  •  2008 – We first adopted the concept of LaMoine as a place “Where Friends Meet Jesus”.
  •  2009 – We started to raise money to renovate our cabins with the “Seed Money for a Kingdom   Harvest” campaign.
  •  2010 – We committed to excellence in all the camp has to offer; buildings, grounds, programs, staff, etc., and more than $35,000 was on hand for our cabin renovations.
  •  2011 – Of course, all the snow as well as my excitement for a new upcoming summer camp season.

I will say it again, “What a difference a year can make”. Just look at what God has blessed our camp with year after year. Soon, the difference will once again be in the changed lives of our volunteers and campers.

I thank you so much for your recent gift to the ministry of God’s camp here at LaMoine. I want to remind you that your financial support does so much more than enable us to build buildings, hire staff, and pay bills. Your faithful support is what provides us with the opportunities to share the gospel message of Jesus Christ with others. And that is truly exciting! 

March 8th is the date of our annual Summer Camp Kick-off Meeting at the camp. This year we will be having a chili and potato soup dinner prior to the start of the meeting. I hope you can come and join us as the excitement begins to build for another summer camp season.

Serving Our Savior Together,
Doug Hamer
