Pictured: Domi and Khan share a high five on the bridge! This is Khan's last night at HBBC as he goes back to England this week. We'll miss you Khan!
Camp: Record numbers at our Day Camps! What a fantastic team who worked hard and invested so well in those campers this past week. We’re thankful that we’ve got such a great team and that the community of Pender Island responds so well to what we’re doing here! We’re also thankful for Viola who poured her heart and soul into sharing the message of Jesus in Chapel each day!
Coopers: "Thankful for a great summer team, and for an awesome preteen camp! So neat to see God doing great things in our girls as well with their baptism and desire to grow. So encouraging." -Bobby
"Thankful for teens thirsty for God's word who can't wait to share what they read the night before! Thankful for a home to come back to between camps where we can regroup. Thankful for this gorgeous island and getting to play on boats today!" -Lyn
Broughtons: "I’m super-grateful to have my family back with me again! Sarah and Ezra spent ten days on the mainland during Team Training, et al, knowing that I would be so busy during that time. It was really good to not feel pulled in two directions during that time (ah, the wisdom of my wife!) but it’s also so nice to have them back. I missed them dearly." -Derek
"I'm thankful for picking fresh apples with a toddler from a trampoline today. He had so much trying to catch falling apples as they bounced away. It's tricky solo parenting but there are lots of beautiful moments :)" -Sarah
"…and I'm grateful for those little moments of family time amongst the chaos. A walk to the beach, a meal together, and a quiet rest for a few hours on the weekend feed my soul."-Derek
Chanda: "We could not be more thankful! Our washer and dryer are finally hooked up and after 6yrs we can finally do laundry in our own home!!! This is a huge game changer and blessing!"
Lauren: "I’m super grateful to get to live on Pender with such an incredible community. I’ve had so many “pinch me” moments lately that leave me in awe of all the blessings that this place brings."
"I’m so thankful to have some days in Alberta to catch up with friends and family. I spent some time out in the mountains with my brothers and it is amazing to recharge in the beauty of God’s creation."
"I'm super thankful that this is God's work. He is in control and knows and loves every camper that comes here. I get to participate in that. That is amazing."
"I'm thankful for the opportunity to cabin lead again! I think cabin leading is the funnest job at camp and I'm so thankful that I get to share the love of Jesus through intentional, relational care with kids that come every week."
