Missionaries

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV). I figured the best way to start this would be with a bible verse, my favorite. God knows the plans for my life when I don’t know them myself. I have the wonderful opportunity to be a summer missionary at Homestead Bible Camp in Roggen, Colorado through Be One Together, and I’m extremely excited. I’ve attended HBC since I was eight years old as a little camper, and this summer will be my fifth summer as a staff member, bringing my total years out there up to thirteen. I spend my summer as head female dorm staff along with a close friend, running the camp store, and leading worship. After last summer, I was certain that I wouldn’t be able to return to Homestead Bible Camp. I am a twenty-year-old full-time college student at Colorado State University studying Animal Science and Agricultural Education. Being a full-time college student is very strenuous on financials, and as much as I loved Homestead Bible Camp, it wasn’t in my budget. Then, God presented me with the opportunity, and it was clear then he really did know the plans for my future, and it was to be at Homestead. I’m excited about all the opportunities this summer will bring, and ask for prayers for all the campers, speakers, and staff who will be in attendance.
