Amazing Story of God's Provision for a Ci Camper
Scholarship Funds Invested Wisely
When I started Ci, I had no idea what a blessing was in store as I get a front row seat to the stories of God's amazing grace as He works in the hearts of our campers! This one just came in before Christmas and I felt it appropriate to share as we have requested donations for our Camper Scholarship Fund.
Here is the story as shared by the mother of one of our Ci 1.0 campers:
- I wanted to let you know about a change in his application for this coming year. We had requested financial assistance, but our son has asked that we rescind that request.
- For the past two summers, our family has been working for a local farming family. We take a truck full of produce to our local farmer's market and set up the stand and run it all day, every Saturday. In addition, throughout the winter, we bring home C.S.A. (community supported agriculture) shares, and people who buy shares in our city come to pick them up at our house. We have done the C.S.A. distribution in exchange for produce and eggs from the farm. Our son has pretty much run that aspect since we started it in October of 2013.
- Recently, the farmer's wife decided that he should be paid, and rather than just starting from here, forward, she paid him retroactively. And just like that, he has enough money to pay for Ci 2.0!
I share this story to bring God the glory for His work of grace in the life of one of our Ci campers. Also to encourage you to prayerfully consider being used of the Lord to help an academically gifted young person who needs financial assistance to earn part of his way to attend a Ci 2.0 camp experience. We offer them a unique blend of engaging head & heart activities and teaching designed to equip modern day Daniels who are competent to stand before the kings of their culture as they excel in their education and are able to proclaim God's Truth and point them to Jesus Christ! We need your help as this type of camp is more expensive than the normal faith-based camp. We require these young people to earn their scholarship as well as give them other ways to reduce their tuition. We are trusting the Lord to burden others like yourself to partner with us. We are seeking 85 $300 scholarships for our Ci 2.0 campers. We praise the Lord we have received 17 so far.
- It has been so fun to watch God provide for Camp Infinity, particularly for our son's participation in it. We know that He wants our son there!
