We are so very grateful for all that our Lord has done with Camp Lost Pines this past year. We have had the opportunity to minister to and serve a number of groups, both large and small. If fact our smallest group this year was (2) in number while our largest was (400+). Throughout 2019 Camp Lost Pines hosted 1,297 guest representing 20 different events. Some of our guest stay overnight for one or two days, while others remain with us for up to three and four months at a time. No matter what the size of the group or the length of the event, we are blessed to have the privilege of serving God’s children. And hopefully saying and/or doing something that will deepen their experience with Jesus while they are with us.
When I see the budget reports from our State Treasure I am overwhelmed at how well Camp Lost Pines is performing. We are SO CLOSE to being self supporting! To God be the glory! He has done great things in 2019 for the Church of God of Prophecy and for Camp Lost Pines. The Lord is opening doors that we never knew were there to be opened, but He knew. I often wonder just what God would do if our COGOP folks would get as excited about this ministry as I am? How much more would He do for us? How many more groups could He send our way? How many more souls would we have the opportunity of ministering to?
Perhaps you, or someone in your church, know someone who is looking for a place to hold a family reunion, church retreat, kids camp, weekend get away, father/son or mother/daughter outing. The list goes on but the point is, there is no better place for R&R than Camp Lost Pines. Will you help us promote “Your Favorite Camp?” Let’s see what our mighty God will do in 2020! God is already moving in this new year! He has sent another group our way. Samaritan’s Purse is an international relief ministry in conjunction with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Samaritan’s Purse is building a housing development in LaGrange and they have contracted to house their teams of volunteers at Camp Lost Pines for 4 months. Beginning February 1, 2020 SP will be renting the campgrounds through May 31.
Church of God of Prophecy Summer Camps will be held in June:
Kid’s Camp June 11th - 15th
Youth Camp June 25th - 29th
On July 7th -12th The Church of God will be holding their Texas State Convention & Family Camp at Camp Lost Pines. We thank God for opening these doors for our campgrounds to be a blessing for so many.
Much work has been done over the past year and space will not allow me to mention it all but rest assured that whatever part you had in this ministry has not gone unnoticed by our Lord or unappreciated by our staff at Camp Lost Pines. We have a BIG VISION of this ministry and it will take a lot of prayer and effort on all our parts to see that vision become a reality. We are in the mist of God’s transforming power at work on these hallowed grounds. Please keep our staff, our guest and our ministry in your prayers as you decide on your involvement in this work. Donations of any amount can be sent to the COGOP State Treasurer’s office. Please make your check payable to: CAMP LOST PINES, INC.
