Prayer point: New opportunities (retreats, camps, outreaches, etc.) for Camp Wyoba to be a part of
Every year Camp Wyoba gets to serve a variety of people and groups. We need to continue to be in prayer about new opportunities for us to be a part of and ways that we can make a greater impact for Christ. This summer we are hosting a family picnic for people who have had loved ones donate organs to save someone’s life. This is a very unique group of people, but how cool is that? These families will probably be experiencing grief as a result of losing a loved one or be dealing with a loss of an organ that they gave to someone. I think that Wyoba is just the place for them to come because God says that He is near to the brokenhearted and we know that the Holy Spirit will be close to them at camp. Both the Wyoba staff and the Holy Spirit will have the opportunity to minister to them even if they do not realize it.
Recently, I have had conversations with one of the directors at Uplands Reach Camp and Conference Center located in Millers Creek, North Carolina. He would like to possibly host a football or baseball camp at Wyoba. They would also like to build a partnership with us. We are not sure what that looks like or how it would work, but God is working on something.
We have also put together a committee to plan an event called, “JesusFest.” This would be a Christian music event with vendors, kids games, and a worship service. There is a lot of potential for growth, unity, and exposure. This event is still in the works, but we are hoping to pull it off in the next few years.
These are all amazing opportunities that could grow Camp Wyoba. Please keep these things in your prayers and if you know of possible partnerships to look into, let me know.
Praying for a greater impact,
Rev. Amber J. Shearer
