Thank you, our supporters and ministry partners, for your constant prayers.

Trinity Pines Summer 2014 Ministry was incredibly blessed. Our fall schedule has also seen continued growth in numbers of guests and reservations. Each weekend our buildings are full and our guests are returning regularly, expressing gratefulness for the improvements. We are enjoying hosting numerous retreats and events throughout the fall and winter. Our spring schedule is filling up quickly, as well, so make plans now for winter and spring retreats.

All of our facilities are being utilized regularly including the new Williams Lodge.

We hope to host you and your ministry, soon!
Trinity Pines has hosted preteen camp for the past 20 years. Only a few people have participated all of those summers. Joe Campbell, "Gramps" to his family, preteen campers and sponsors, is one of those special people.

Gramps began serving as a Preteen Camp sponsor from the very beginning and committed to bringing his grandchildren to Trinity Pines Preteen Camp (now called Camp Overflow) with him to share in the experience. His example of love for his family demonstrated in his faithful service to the Preteen Camp Ministry has blessed all six of his grandchildren.

For granddaughter, Shelby Campbell, the experience inspired her to return to Trinity Pines as a summer staffer. For the past 2 summers, Shelby has continued her grandfather and father's spiritual legacy by serving on our Summer Staff Ministry Team. She has shown Christ's love by loving on campers, encouraging them on the Challenge Course, serving in the Dining Hall, and washing many dishes!  She said that "it was such a blessing to be a kid with my grandfather at preteen camp and then serve alongside him these past 2 summers at Camp Overflow"

Paul wrote to the Thessalonians,
"We loved you so much that we shared with you not only God's Good News but our own lives, too." We as believers ought to follow Christ and Paul's example in sharing our lives fully with others. Thank you, Joe Campbell, "Gramps", for setting the bar high to do just that.

Prayer note: We learned after preparing this newsletter article that Gramps is being treated for cancer in his upper vertebrae. He had surgery this month and is doing well. Please pray for him and for their family.
