March 23, 2020: I am thankful for some big answers to prayers for guidance that resulted in my squeezing through the last crack in the door getting back to France from my conference in Canada before the borders closed. I was sorry to have to cut the trip short and miss seeing the Jackson churches. I hope they can come help serve at Camp soon or I can come after the summer camps.
March 23, 2020: Pray that God will use this time of isolation and confinement to lay the groundwork for a revival in France. We anticipate people coming out of this with questions and hopefully a spiritual receptiveness. Pray that God will help us prepare to effectively speak to those needs once restrictions are lifted.
March 23, 2020: Pray for the team here at Camp and the French churches as everyone reinvents how we reach out to people in the middle of this global crisis. Pray that God gives us the eyes to see the opportunities as they open before us and the wisdom to follow where God leads.
March 23, 2020: Pray for the ongoing health for all of our team members and their families.
March 23, 2020: We have unfortunately had to cancel numerous camps and groups over March, April, and into May as a result of the virus. We are still busy gearing up for a non-stop series of camps and groups this Summer until September. This is an intense time of activity for our small team. Pray that God keeps us unified, helps us to be an excellent witness for Him in all our words and actions, and that He grants us the wisdom and strength to flourish. The spiritual warfare is great and we can see it raging around us as things always seem to happen to try an prevent these Camps from being effective. Pray that we have the eyes to see it for what it is and to see God’s solutions to overcome whatever obstacles are thrown our way. Pray for God’s guidance as we prepare, that God brings the right people to the Camp, and that ongoing virus restrictions, travel difficulties and strikes don’t prevent people from coming. We are growing and have new people coming who have never been here before. Pray that God will prepare their hearts for their time here. Pray too as the Camp is reworking a lot of the administration from start to finish. It is a time for a lot of exciting changes. Pray that God continues to guide us and grant us wisdom to set up the process in a way that facilitates His purpose for the Camp for many years to come.
March 23, 2020: I was due to finish raising the support level required during the time scheduled in the US following the conference. With the sudden return to France, that did not happen. God has always, without fail, provided for every need. So under the present situation, I am merely trusting God to provide my needs at this point. Perhaps I need to take up fishing (Matthew 17:22-27)?
