If you’ve been around camp at all you know Shaun always starts his riddles with “So there’s this guy… .” There’s a reason for that, but today I start our post with:
There were these guys!
They came from Florida and North Carolina in the early spring to build a bridge. They worked tirelessly for days to get the job done. Why in the world would they do such a thing?
Turns out the answer isn’t as much a brain teaser as it is a heart posture. The Fab Five had energy, skills and time, but it was their love for God and the belief in the work being done here at Whisper Mountain Camp that pushed them into action!
One of these guys, who has faithfully served the church for so long, has never been on any sort of mission trip before. How inspiring — it’s never to late to go; now is the time to say yes!
This project was very long overdue. Being the first impression driving through our gates, an important project indeed! We are thankful for their hard work!
The Fab Five were so fab they finished the bridge and moved right into installing new windows and stripping off the old siding on part of our Hub! The only downer to this project is that the snow moved in on them and they didn’t get to finish siding it all, which was actually very hard for them. But they pushed hard to complete so much of it — in.the.freezing.cold.
These guys…they came in humbly, willing, and with lines of faithfulness creasing their hands. When they drove away, the mark of Jesus was left in this place. This, friends, is the greatest blessing!
Thank you for coming and serving, Fab Five! Thank you for the heart posture you inspire us with. (I bet Florida’s heat has you wishing it were snowing😂!!)
We put together a video showing the work they accomplished while with us.
[SIDE NOTE: no campers were ever lost in the waiting of this rebuild of our bridge!]
We’d also like to give a ginormous shout out to Greg Hunt for creating and donating the post holders for this bridge build. The bridge pretty much wouldn’t be standing without them…which also quite nicely represents the sort of man Greg is in general! The quiet, steadying foundation holding things up, strengthening those around him. He’s the Silent Partner that really makes this post about the Fab Six!
Be sure to catch the video here.
