Rave Review: New Life Academy

I just wanted to say a tremendous thank you to the whole of Living Waters staff. I just returned from a trip with my class at New Life Academy and I want to say that you changed my life. I appreciated everything you guys did. Serving meals, leading nature classes, and hanging out with us at the rock wall and swing.

I was - and still am - so amazed at the selfless, serving attitude shown by staff and Siler family. I personally feel convicted of being extremely selfish, and after spending a couple days with all the wonderful people I want to change myself more than ever. I never thought that such giving, humble people could effect me so much.

I've prayed for you all so many times since I have come home, just asking the Lord to keep you sustained, doing the amazing work you do and touching so many lives. Again, thank you for that unforgettable weekend.

God Bless You!

Rave Review: Hope Christian Academy

Dear Andrew and Living Waters Bible Camp Staff,

Our students and staff were very blessed to visit you at Living Waters Bible Camp. From your greeting on our bus to some of the staff gathering to say goodbye, you demonstrated the love of Christ. From the first time I heard about Living Waters, I was impressed that you (the camp and Dennis) would provide and try to meet the camping group’s needs and desires for preaching and teaching. Dennis Siler did an excellent job of relating to the teens and giving them applications that they could relate to.

Your camp offers quite an impressive array of activities and I feel confident that we could return and do quite a variety of different things from what we experienced. The mud bog stories and applications are still being talked about in the halls of HCA. And many kids overcame their fear of the height to conquer the zip line. Several felt this was an area of significant personal growth – that besides the obvious analogy to stepping off into God’s will when we can’t feel His supporting hand. I’ve heard that talked about more than once too. The fort breakfast and all the associated skills challenges were really fun, although I am still disappointed that I couldn’t throw the hatchet and spit the tree in half – after all, I watched Daniel Boon as a kid do it dozens of times on TV!

Personally, I was blessed to have Tim notice that our bus needed some attention with the muffler and then take the initiative to fix it. We made it home safe and I praised God for a brother who was paying attention to our old bus.

Thanks for all you gave to make our Hope High Retreat memorable. I believe that we will be harvesting fruit from the seeds sown there all year long. May God bless you and your families and the ministry of Living Waters Bible Camp.

Sincerely for Christ-like kids,

Randy Krussow
Principal

Letter of Praise: Helping Hands for Christ

The following excerpt is from a letter from the co-director of the Helping Hands for Christ ministry, that brought a group of 2nd – 8th graders to LWBC in early June:

Dear LWBC,

I wanted to send a quick note of thanks for the amazing experience you and your team provided for the children and parents of our ministry. From the second the children got off the bus until we arrived home, I didn't hear a single child complain of being bored or cold, even with the constant rain on Saturday, because they were continuously learning and having new experiences.

The manner in which you provided the message of Jesus Christ to these children and their parents was absolutely Spirit-led. I was very impressed with how each activity had a message within it about our Lord. This is exactly what I was looking for as I prayed for a camp for these children. Originally, I tried to find a camp closer to our homes, but just didn't have a good feeling about the camps I had contacted. Immediately upon our first emails, I felt that we were supposed to come to your camp. I do believe that was the Holy Spirit letting me know this is where the kids were supposed to be! I cannot emphasize enough how the delivery of the message of salvation was perfect for where these children, and their parents, are in their lives.

Thank you so very much for all that you and your team did to help these children on their journey!

Sincerely,
Helping Hands for Christ, Inc.
