When deciding to start Camp Rhino, I knew there would be an enormous learning curve heading into that area of ministry. Since our arrival to the States, I’ve tried to visit different camps and meet with their directors in order to gain as much knowledge as I could about camp ministry.
Last month, when visiting Wolf Mountain Camp in California, I was privileged to meet Evangelist Mark Herbster who “just happened” to be there as their main speaker. Mark also works at The Wilds Camp in North Carolina during the summers and insisted I come for a visit. This past week Mark arranged for me to visit during their last week of summer camp. He also put me in contact with key people at the Wilds that were a great help. I had one-on-one meetings with their Presidents, their Camps Abroad Director, their Retreat Coordinator, their Food Services Manager, and their Program Director. After two days of being able to meet with their people, attend their services, meal times, games, and activities, I really came away with a wealth of knowledge.
I’m really blown away by the people I’ve been able to come in contact with since deciding to start Camp Rhino. The Lord has placed key individuals in my path that have been overwhelmingly helpful.
