Camp Good News
John Romano

Dear Friend of Camp Good News,

 

Greetings in Christ from Camp Good News. These are busy days, as we prepare our grounds, our

programs, and our own hearts for a full summer of ministry to the children of Maine, and beyond.

 

Last year it was new bathrooms for the girls, this year we are thanking our Lord for new boy's

bathrooms. The Lord willing, it appears that they will be ready to use by June 22, when we open for

Christian Youth in Action® training school. The grounds are looking good, the buildings are being cleaned,

paperwork and programs are coming together, and volunteers are signing up. We have had volunteer help

throughout this spring, and we are thankful.

 

Children and teens are sending in their registrations and camp is filling up. Many of those

registrations come with a request for financial help. We do require a letter of explanation, telling us why

financial help is needed. We minister to many needy kids, and we never say no. God's faithfulness, coupled

with your generosity makes it possible for us to give full sponsorships to some, partial sponsorships to

others, and keeps the price for a week at camp reasonable for all.

 

Our camp philosophy is quite simple: "Camp is for the camper." Our desire, our prayers, and our

efforts are all focused on providing a fun, safe environment where kids can come to know our Lord Jesus

Christ, and learn to walk with Him.

 

For some kids camp is an excellent supplement to a Christian home, and a good church, for other

kids camp is the only place where they can learn of our Lord Jesus, and that great salvation that He freely

provides for all who believe.

 

Every year we not only provide sponsorships for kids, but shoes, socks, shirts and whatever else is

needed for a child to enjoy a week at Camp Good News- above all else we share the love of our Lord Jesus

with kids in need of Him. And every year we hear from kids that Camp Good News is the very best place in

all the world. This will be my 36th year at Camp Good News, and except for home, I think it's my favorite

place also.

 

Every year parents say "thank you" for providing such a good place for their kids. And we say

"thank you" to all of you for your generosity, helping to make that possible. Some of you have already

given to our sponsorship fund, and some of you are waiting for this letter - and for all of you we thank our

God, "from whom all blessings flow."

 

May our God and Savior continue to bring His blessing to your life.

 

'Til Every Child Knows,

John Romano

P.S.

Jesus said "Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me" (Matt. 18:5).

At Camp Good News we receive children in the name of the Lord Jesus, and we do so on behalf of all of

you who pray and give. Thank you.

 

Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth. . . Eccl. 12: 1
