Off To Camp

This morning we are leaving to take Matthew to Camp Medeba, the Bible camp he has enjoyed the last three summers. His best friend Alex will be there too.

Matthew's legs have really been bothering him the last few days especially. That's why he had to drop out of the goalie camp. He is sitting in a hot bath as I write this post, hoping to relieve some of the aches and pains.

Please pray for Matthew when he comes to mind. He loves going to camp but at times in the past, other boys in his cabin have teased him and have not been very nice to him. Matthew takes everything in stride but it must bother him. Please pray that his tender heart will be enriched during the chapels and quiet times. Matthew loves the Lord.

Thanks so much, dear Pilgrim Pals! You enrich my life more than you realize!

Grateful to God for each of you,

David, the Pilgrim

Dear David...Just off to pick up kids for Sunday School, but want to say hi to Matthew and we will be praying for the little guy.
I hope he has a real good time at camp David! from Terry

What do you mean "when" he comes to mind David?
I think all the Pilgrim Pals can honestly say that he is on our mind lots of times!

Terry:

THANKS SO MUCH! You are such a wonderful friend!

Be encouraged today, my PILGRIM PAL.

The journey "home" takes on a whole new perspective when you have such wonderful traveling companions doesn't it!

Love,

David

Hi David,

I will definately remember Matthew in prayer this week. Kids can be cruel - even Christians unfortunately - part of our fallen nature I guess. I'm glad Matthew's friend will be there - praise God for friendships! Blessings,
Julie

Father God, I lift up Matthew and his friend Alex to you today. Would you move within their hearts and minds, their very souls, to see and learn something new and exciting about You this week?! I also pray for Matthew's legs, that they would not be a stumbling block in his ability to praise and glorify You this week. Protect all the kids, Lord. I pray for your Spirit to do a mighty work in the heart of every child attending. In Your Son's Precious Name I pray. Amen.

I'll be praying for Matthew for sure...I can't stand it when anyone teases my littlest brother or makes unkind remarks because he's small for his age. I could honestly punch them sometimes...Yes, I get nasty if anyone touches my siblings!

TO ALL MY PILGRIM PALS:

Thanks for the outpouring of support for Matthew. We took him to camp this afternoon and he was quite content to say "goodbye". His friend Alex will be a great support for Matthew.

Please keep praying. By the way, Matthew is allergic to bees/wasps, etc. and there are quite a few of them around the camp. He has his epi-pen (sp?) with him though.

Thanks again, PILGRIM PALS!

Lots of love,

David

Dear David, Father of Mattew,
I read your post yesterday and have been praying especially for Matthew and his friend Alex since then. It's heartbreaking when children are being badly treated from their Comrades. I hope the leaders are well aware of their responsability showing a none tolerance conerning mobbing.
Its always the weaker who are being attacked or frozen out. Neither teachers, preachers or youth leaders should accept such behaviour.
God bless you, all.
