Ordering our steps for an awesome 2012…

I pray that you and yours enjoyed a deeply blessed Christmas.  May we have ever increasing faith to believe Father for his very best in this exciting new year.  This week at Camp Laughing Child we are ordering stone, iron and wood materials, pressing forward to complete the projects that lead to hosting overnight campers.  Next week I will send a detailed list of the various construction projects that remain, along with the unfading invitation to agree with me in prayer that Father will indeed meet every need.  There are certain requirements which we must accomplish for readiness to host our overnight campers.  Before we can invite the special needs children, to which God has called us, it is necessary to ensure that our facilities are 100% ready for their care.  My prayerful hope is that we can be prepared to invite our first terminally ill overnight campers during the Christmas season of this year.

Painfully, I have come to realize that it is essential to invest more of my time in raising the funds necessary to meet this ambitious target.  For this reason, I will be spending the entire month of February speaking and singing in the United States.  I will post the itinerary for that month as soon as it is complete.  I so hope to see you at one of those engagements.

We are currently in the process of creating an online donation page which allows donors to give recurring or one-time gifts from their checking or savings accounts as well as the possibility of charging donations to Visa or Mastercard credit cards.  I will certainly let you know when this helpful service is up and ready.  My Family, It is utterly crucial that we expand our support base this year.  More monthly donors are deeply needed for creating a predictable ministry budget.  I pray that our online giving option will encourage many to partner with us on a monthly basis.  Please pray and fast with me in the coming months as we faithfully invite others to partner with Camp Laughing Child in 2012.

Thanks again to all of you that made our Camp Opening possible last month.  May we see now the happy completion of the great healing work which Father has begun here in Mexico.

Love and Gratitude,
