The LORD gives strength to his people;
the LORD blesses his people with peace.

This is a letter from Camp Living Waters about the need for volunteers and meals in March. Who is available and willing?
January 21, 2015
Monday, March 23, 2015 – Friday, March 27, 2015, Camp Living Waters will have the Campers on Missions working at the camp. Campers on Missions (COM) is a group of folks from all over the state. They build, repair, paint and maintain church camp facilities and Louisiana College. COM has served by getting the facilities ready for the spring and summer camps. The camp provides the materials and supplies for the projects. Because they are willing to minister to us by their hard work, we are asking for our local churches to help us by covering the food expense and to bless them by your ministry.
We are asking that your church or group provide either lunch or supper for this group (40 – 60) Monday-Thursday. I will know for certain on Sunday, March 22 the total number.
We will provide the drinks.
Lunch is served at noon. Lunch is usually something light, such as soup, sandwiches, or hamburgers. Side items have included chips, salad, or fresh fruit.
Supper is served at 5:30. In the past supper has been jambalaya, spaghetti, pork, fried chicken and even pizza. Side dishes that compliment the main course are appreciated. We can provide the garden salad items.
Desserts are not needed as they usually bring enough on their own.
In order for a meal not to be duplicated, please let me know what you wish to provide as soon as possible. I would like to have the meal schedule completed by Feb 9th, 2015.
We also are asking for volunteers to come to the camp and help out with the breakfast meal. This would be Monday – Thursday also. I need 2 volunteers each day from 6:30 – 8:30 a.m. There is no serving line, but I would need help with clean up.
If you have any questions, please email me or call my home. 985-345-3315.
Thank you so much for your prayers.
In His Service,

Operation Christmas Child
Filled paper bags are being turned in. If you have a bag, please fill it and return to the area across from the kitchen. If you, as an individual, do not have a bag, please get one or more, fill them, and return them as soon as possible. We have a lot of boxes to fill to make many little hearts smile at the end of the year.
I often present needs here and you graciously respond to these needs. For example:
- Monica Maddox is coming from Camp Living Waters Friday to pick up the items you donated.
- We are approaching our goal for Lottie Moon. The “candy cane” is looking real good!
- You donate to Hope Center and give of your time to volunteer there.
- We filled more shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child than we have ever done before.
Thank you for the many ways you show the love of God (and others) dwells in your heart!
Read the Bible in 2015 – Job 5-6
Have a great day. May your life abound with blessings.
