At the close of 2011, we found the Lord really refining our team as we went through numerous trials: hurdles for Climb BlueSky, car accidents, instability in Kenya, and family medical trials back home. As we enter 2012, our team is rested and ready to see what the Lord has in store in 2012. We know that this year will bring its own set of trials and victories and we believe that the Lord will be faithful to use each of them to bring Glory to His name.
With the exception of 1 person, all of the team members are back and Kenya and plugging into their different ministry areas. The student team is meeting with their covenant groups, getting ready to kick off their weekly events, and will be assisting with a 3-day conference for homeschool students this week.
The Camp BlueSky team is continuing preparations for this summer and getting ready to start camper registration next month. We still need more counselors for next summer so if you know any college students who love Jesus, love kids, and want to spend their summer serving in Kenya, please send them our way!
BlueSky Adventures is positioning itself to roll out new programs in the upcoming weeks. We’ve created a corporate and a student track that will set teams on a course to complete a series of programs. Our hope is that this will bring the same teams back again and again so that we are able to continue to invest in and build relationships with them!
Progress is steady at Climb BlueSky. At this point the beginner wall, bouldering cave, birthday party deck, youth seating area and offices are all coming along. Enjoy this slideshow that show’s recent progress, its so exciting, this is going to be an awesome tool to enable us to engage our community.
