The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.
Psalm 34:18

Dealing with loss is difficult for everyone, but can be especially hard for children. Miss Mollie sent this resource to me this week. The sessions begin soon. 

Tammy Fleming and her husband, Andy, planted the church in Moscow in 1991. Because of their amazing faith, God blessed the team tremendously. Tammy is now a certified grief counselor. She is having a seminar to give tools to help children effectively deal with their broken hearts, no matter what kind of loss they are experiencing.  
You can register at: Tammy@missionstory.com.
September 16 is the first of a 4-week seminar.

 Hi, Camp Swamp Family!

We have a couple of requests: First, volunteers are needed! We can’t run our retreats without volunteers! If you’re looking for a way to serve, we need kitchen workers (18+) and teen workers (rising 10th graders) and counselors. This is a great opportunity to serve.  

Second, feedback from Camp Swamp surveys are needed! – Whether you are a camper, parent of a camper, counselor, or volunteer from this past family or summer camps, please help us by completing the survey. Our mission is to help kids see God and your feedback helps us be sure we not only continue doing that, but that we can be even better moving forward!

To fill out the survey, click here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8867VBM

Thank you for supporting Camp Swamp! We are SO grateful for you!

Steve and Rachele Gibson, Camp Swamp GA – Directors
