Ode to Camp Bethel

Camp Bethel, Camp Bethel, what a sacred space
You welcomed us in like one great big embrace

With campers many, a new challenge came
We had to split in half, step up our game

The joy, the laughter, the smiles with all
We learned many new songs and had a ball

The counselors, you amazed us all, for real for real
Your dedication to campers, your overflowing zeal

We loved meeting you, summer staff, memories hilarious and grand
Interacting with such inspiring peers, to you we clap our hand…s

From Rest Period Song, silly skits, great worships too
we are so grateful to share in such greatness with you

And campers, you impressed us something wonderful
Your talents, leadership, with joy your hearts were full

For me personally, as this summer we roam
I cherish the love found at Camp Bethel, my home.

  1. Dear,Brothers and sisters
    Greetings in the name of our Lord my name is shahzad james and my wife name is Fraida we have three kids we are blong from Brethren church from Pakistan.I would like to tell u what we are doing in Pakistan.

    the time to REACH OUT to our Kids and build relationships that will impact the future of our communities, nation and world.

    Who? Any little kid who is age 4-12, who deals with any of the below and is looking for a CHANGE!
    • Illiteracy of Parents
    • Sunday school
    • Social Background
    • Family issues ( abuse, drugs, homelessness
    we want great impact of Gospel in our society. We are not going to teach children once in a week or just Sunday school, instead, we prepared a syllabus (which covers up trainings of five years), and this program includes activities based on the biblical theme –role-play, color-drawings and logic puzzles. Audio and video visualization is preferred during the classes. This allows students to explore the topic further by getting new information or consolidated established information.
    • Building relationships with children through trainings program
    • Parents Seminar addressing the issues that are critical to the growth of children such as illiteracy, family issues etc.

    how God is working in an Islamic Country, Pakistan, whose population is 97% Muslim.
    I hope this mail encouraging to your faith. what God id doing through our Ministries in Pakistan. Desperate need of your spiritual support to extend our ministries all over Pakistan

    God bless you,
    SHAHZAD JAMES
