Garden Camp is Next Week!

Dear Friends and Prayer Warriors,

Please take some time over the weekend and through next week to pray for our upcoming Garden Camp.  We've got just over 30 kids ages 5-12 signed up to participate. Right now, we're in the last stages of getting ready.  I'm working on getting the garden cleaned up, finalizing lessons, and trying to get all the details in place for the kids to have a great time! The kids will be learning biblical lessons about Creation care, soil types, and reaping what you sow, while simultaneously getting to build some soil, pull some weeds, pick some veggies, and prep their own lunches from fresh fruits and veggies.  We've got a great group of  volunteers lined up, including a couple of guys trekking in all the way from Denton, TX to help out! Please pray the Lord gives us an incredibly "fruitful" week! Over the course of the week, I'll be posting pictures of camp over on the Garden Facebook page. 

A couple of weeks ago our local newspaper, the Herald&Tribune, did a really nice article on the Garden and ran it on the front page.  You can read the full article online here.

The Lord has already blessed us with a great month at West Hills. We've had visitors every single Sunday in July!  We are truly thankful! 

Thank you for your prayers and support! We couldn't be here without you! 

This week we put rock in the pathways to stop the weeds and eliminate the mud.

We're almost all cleaned up for Garden Camp.
The extra rock piles go into the center of the cinder blocks to secure them together.

Our sunflower field in front of the church is almost to its peak, and almost every day folks stop by to take pictures!
My two helpers are doing a great job! And they love riding in the wheelbarrow.
