We've been enjoying the company of some Minnesotans the past coupla days! On a journey to visit other family they stopped in to see the camp they hear all aboat. The same camp they help support through their Team 10 membership!
You know those times you hear a story–funny, touching or whatever–and the storyteller is doing the best he/she possibly can to convey all the emotions and details, but you sorta stare at him/her with a look that says, "I'm just not getting it"? They reply with "I guess you just had to be there."
As staff, we feel like this sometimes. We share pictures and stories, progress and projects, but unless people come and see for themselves, they don't really get all that Whisper Mountain Youth Camp is. To put it in our Minnesotans' words, "This is quite a beautiful place. We see all your pictures and keep up with all the updates, but it's just not the same as being here and seeing it for ourselves."
I am unashamedly promoting your involvement in our ministry in a very tangible way. The start of a year is the perfect time to make plans to visit us, serve with us, support us. We know how great it is! Won't you come see it for yourself?!
