Camp has received 8 new wheels this fall!
Attached to those wheels are a new John Deere tractor for mowing+ and new Camp truck for hauling+!
The First Baptist Church in Ixonia heard our plight of the riding lawn mower deciding not to work anymore this year and really stepped up to work with Kim and provide Camp a brand new John Deere X570 that will mainly be used for mowing grass in those hard to reach places that the big tractor just can’t get, but is too big for a push mower to handle.
Earlier this year, Carolyn reached out to Carmen Porco at Housing Ministries of American Baptists in Wisconsin to see what they look for when purchasing a new truck in anticipation of replacing the current truck. The response was – if you can wait a couple months, we have a truck we can give you. What a truck indeed – we received a 2015 Dodge Ram 1500 in excellent condition with a snow plow attachment!
As we enter in to the year of Collaboration these two examples are a great showing of how ministries can work together for a common goal. We are extremely grateful for the generosity shown to Camp so we can focus on care of creation and those that come to “be” in that space.
