Sweet things in life come in many different kinds of packages. Last night at camp there was a little party going on in the store. John was at his job of making shaved ice. This time he made strawberries and cream. What a nice treat!
I had to send along this email to share with you. It is another sweet thing in life that encouraged my heart, and hopefully it will yours also.
Keep sensitive about life and even when there seems to be trouble and frustration, look for the sweet things.
I just received this email this morning and I want everyone to see it. It came, as you’ll see from Lia Back, who was camp nurse the first week this summer. It is one more expression of how the Lord is using this ministry to impact many people, some who we’ll never know until eternity.

Hi Roy, I would like to share a little something that involves camp. Please send this on to Jeff and anyone else who knows Noah Campbell and may be interested. My neighbor is a local Sunday School teacher and came for a visit last night. She told me her kids in Sunday School this past Sunday were bubbling over talking about their experiences at camp. One of these kids was Noah. She told me she has had Noah in her class for about two years and he has nearly caused her to quit teaching on some occasions. (I can certainly see that) She said Noah was the one who was most excited about how much fun he had at camp. Then they had an activity where each child has to pray for the child sitting next to their right. The child sitting next to Noah was a special needs child with emotional problems. My neighbor got tears in her eyes and her voice cracked as she told me that Noah prayed the most beautiful prayer she has ever heard a child pray. Noah thanked God for this special needs child and thanked Him for sending a light in our lives through this person. My neighbor stopped and said "Lia, if this is what camp can do for Noah, I think every child in Perry county should go to Camp Nathaneal."
