This week there are two camps taking place at LWBC; 3rd-5th Grade Camp and [week two of] Foundation Camp. (We’ll provide an update on 3rd-5th Grade Camp later in the week!)

Yesterday, Foundation Campers headed to LaCrosse to do street evangelism and surveys. There were a number of people who were willing to engage in open conversation about the Lord. It was an exciting thing to witness three professions of faith in Jesus…. we really saw a lot of answered prayer.

Today, the Foundation Campers were able to serve in Gays Mills area (approximately 30 miles south of LWBC) – the place had been pretty badly damaged by the recent floods. There has even been talk of relocating the town a mile away because of the damage. We helped out in nine homes, gutting out water-damaged areas as well as cleaning out basements. Some basements still had multiple inches of mud and up to 18 inches of water (which was needing to be completely cleaned and pumped out). We’re thankful to the Lord that we could help them out; the families were very appreciative and said we helped save them a couple weeks’ worth of work (in just one day). A handful of these families are even preparing to move back into their homes soon! It was a really neat opportunity to serve in a nearby community.
