The year of 2020 will never be forgotten! God has been so good to us here at Camp Lost Pines. We finish this year out with a record high in revenue received. Can you believe it? Even in the mist of a pandemic, our God has not only supplied our need but surpassed our expectations. To HIM be all the glory! In October we were able to secure 10 folding benches for our dinning hall. After some cleaning, painting trim and polishing, we replaced the old benches with the new ones and they sure look good. Without going into all the details I'll just say that it took the entire month of October to accomplish this task, but the finished product and the difference it makes in our dinning hall are well worth the effort. November brought another major project to Camp Lost Pines. As you know, our caretaker left in March 2020 because of health reasons. So we were busy in November and December remodeling the caretaker's living quarters. It has been completely redone. The walls have been patched, cleaned and painted. The trim and doors have been cleaned and painted. We have washed the windows and curtains. New blinds have been installed. The bathroom has been scrubbed, painted and new incidentals were added. Last but not least, we removed the old carpet, cleaned the floors and installed new vinyl flooring. It looks great! Our new air conditioner/heater unit is due to be installed in January 2021. December was a great time for your Camp Manager and Sister Tolman. After doing a few small repairs in the dorm and one of the cabins, we were able to spend Christmas with our daughter and her family in Austin. During their Christmas break some of the Samaritan's Purse guest blessed Camp Lost Pines with a Christmas gift of refurbishing the back porch at the lodge. What a blessing it is to have this wonderful group staying with us. On a personal note: I want to give a big thank you to all our friends of Camp Lost Pines that have been praying for Sister Tolman. Her health has taken a significant turn for the worst since just after Christmas and she is now under hospice care. She is not able to get out of bed but God is faithful to keep her from pain. For that we are very grateful. We believe it is due to the prayers of the Saints. Dionie Tolman is a child of the King and when ever He decides to call her home, she is prepared to go. There will be no more gloomy days then! Thank you for your prayers.
As stated earlier, our caretaker's quarters have been remolded and we are ready for the next servant of the Lord to come and be a part of this great ministry. Please see the attached page and help us find our first intern. Age is 19-70. Thank you so much for your help and support of YOUR FAVORITE CAMP.
