Now Seeking… Spiritual Foster Parents.

Dear Camp Family,

I ask you, with all my heart, to rise with Camp Laughing Child in compassionate responsibility for hurting children this Christmas. Please pray about spiritually adopting one of our child campers during this season of healing and hope. This would mean making a serious commitment to pray specifically for Father’s very best in the life of one of His precious kids attending our Christmas Camp this season. I will post some specific information on the kids, along with photos, in the coming days. Thank you for considering the blessing and responsibility of being a spiritual foster parent this year!

I googled, “synonyms for what it means to foster”. Here are just a few words I found: cherish, nurture, support, strengthen, help, enrich, sponsor, boost, cultivate, aid, uphold, contribute, sustain, assist, promote, facilitate, champion, etc.

Then, more importantly, I “Bibled” what Jesus has to say about taking in a child that is not one’s own. He said, “Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For he who is least among you all is the greatest.” What a profound privilege and responsibility to care for the least of these among us. Camp Laughing Child will be hosting 12 beautiful children from 6 to 12 years old that are poor, institutionalized, and sick with cancer or HIV. I invite you to touch them through the miracle of prayer this Christmas. Please welcome these children into your heart, and in so doing, welcome our healing Jesus and His loving and sending Father! He is worthy and these kids are worth it!

Please hold Camp Laughing Child close in prayer as we fast approach our demanding camp season. Financially, we are running on faith and “fumes” after recently paying the power company $15,000 for new service installation. Please consider sharing with your family and friends an awesome opportunity to be a truly significant blessing to broken children through giving to Camp Laughing Child this Christmas!

YOU have built a healing place for hurting kids at Camp Laughing Child! THANK YOU!!

Love and Gratitude,
