James 1:27 says “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after (the fatherless) and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” Camp Lake Louise, working with Psalm68Five Ministries, helps send children, growing up without a father presence in their lives, to unplug from their world each summer, to unplug from the pollution of the world (and screens), and to enjoy God’s creation and fellowship for a week at summer camp. More than that, we seek to bring a specific message of hope to our kids, a message of “identity” as God’s children of the true Father, through faith in Jesus Christ. All this at little or no cost to the child. Increasingly, we are inviting
single-mother families, which have no active father presence, to summer “family camps” to share the message of God’s heart for the fatherless and their mothers. It is our hope and prayer that the Holy Spirit will use this ministry to help our kids/families make choices in life, consistent with this true identity through Jesus Christ and not the “orphan spirit” identity which leads to so many bad outcomes in life.
To be a son or daughter of the heavenly Father, and to live out life with this true identity, is the highest and greatest gift we can have this side of heaven. It comes through faith in Jesus Christ. How can we become God’s children? John 1:12-13 tells us: “Some, however, did receive him (Jesus Christ) and believed in him; so he gave them the right to become God’s children. They did not become God’s children by natural means, that is, by being born as the children of a human father; God himself was their Father.” GNTD
If you know of a child or teen growing up without a father presence in their life, please let us know and we will invite them to attend a potentially life-changing week at Camp Lake Louise where they can learn about the special message God the Father has for them. If you want to help send a fatherless child or teen to fulfill the call given in James 1:27, to potentially change the trajectory of the life of that child or teen, please donate at here: http://camplakelouise.com/how-to-help/donate/
