Happy birthday to Karen Neff, one of camp's hardest working volunteers!

Welcome to Tom & Jane Weiss who came to visit on Venture Fund Day, Jane cooked at our sister camp in Illinois before moving to FL. She wants to send the double convection ovens to Camp Emmanuel.

Brother Bill Hann stopped by for some sunshine at Venture Fund day telling Mr. Mike about growing up as the son of a Clearfield County, PA logger. Bill's mom was the logging camp cook and he remembers his dad building a bear proof box over the spring to serve as the family's refrigerator.

2 Mike's: camp director Mike Neff greeted Mike Hoffman, a camper from the early 70's, Sunday when Mike came back to see camp. He remembers silent walks from the outdoor chapel, the bell just outside the dining hall, hikes to the clay pit & swimming in the lake. His dad is John Hoffman, the caretaker that preceded Rex Miller. Welcome back Mike!

Thank you all that operated this faithful machine at camp. While it has moved on to another home, we are grateful for its years of service.

Prayers please for past camp volunteer Dave Turnbull's family, Dave journeyed home early Monday morning. Pictured here in 2007. He often said "Praise the Lord." Dave & Joan retired to Missouri after their time at Camp Ithiel. On Sunday morning Dave's son Stu sent him a text that read "soon and very soon we are going to see the King." Dave's reply: "Yes, Amen!"

Moon over camp lake, praise the Creator.
