November 2014 | A Note From Kevin

Kevin Relyea 002I am very thankful to report that it has been a great life changing summer in Idyllwild!

Thank you for your prayers, encouragement, investment, and support. We know that what ‘Idyllwild Pines’ is called to do, cannot be done without God’s leading, blessing, power, and people.

Many of you have joined with us through prayer and by investing your time and treasure. Due to your involvement, Camp continues to be a place where people get close enough to God’s “invisible attributes”, as revealed in creation, to sense the reality of His presence and hear His voice speaking truth to them in love.IMG_0851

In just 12 weeks, from the end of May to Aug 23, we were blessed to experience 19,745 camper days at Idyllwild Pines. During that time, Jesus was lifted up, and many campers made significant, life changing decisions about their relationship with God.

Camp does not happen unless God connects hearts, like yours, to His mission and moves you to get involved. That is why we thank Him often for you and for our staff and for our Board of Directors. That is why we report to you today that, “God is good.”
