Art and Pam DeVos
Art and Pam Devos, Ashton and Hudson are our more local missionary partners. Art is the executive director of Camp Rock where his family lives and serves. Pam provides the leadership in food preparation at camp. Ashton, who will soon turn seventeen, and thirteen year old Hudson also play important roles at Camp Rock. “This year’s proving to be as exhilarating as last year was challenging! To say we’re excited about what God is doing here would be this year’s understatement!” Art recently stated in a letter to supporters.
Camp Rock hit 100% capacity this summer with 489 campers being served (capacity was set at 480). The first summer the Devos family served at Camp Rock in 2013 there were 123 campers. Art writes, “God’s at work in mighty ways; let’s celebrate that together!”
This summer there were 22 summer ministry team members. Several of the ministry team members were young people from Monument Bible Church. The staff members spend Time Alone With God (TAWG) as they make it a priority to be in God’s Word. God’s Word is true and does not change—Camp Rock stands firm on this.
Art states, “We refuse to be complacent, having maxed out this summer. So many more people need Jesus, and we must do everything we can with our opportunities to impact for Christ. We are making plans to remodel a few areas of camp to continue the momentum”
Camp Rock has been ministering for 75 years. On October 23 Camp Rock Ministries is hosting a Fall Banquet Saturday at the camp facilities in Redington. There will be camp tours at 11:00 and 1:30. A noon lunch, worship and program will be held at 12:00 noon. What a great opportunity to see one of our missionary partners and mission firsthand! Please RSVP at www.camprock.net. The banquet serves two purposes: “ 1) It supplements our annual budget, keeping our camper’s prices much lower than the average camp. 2) It funds these growth-related projects.”
Please pray for Art, Pam, Ashton and Hudson as they serve the Lord by reaching out to the youth of our area. A note of encouragement can be sent to 8092 Road 81, Bridgeport, NE, 69336 or an e-mail sent to www.camprock.net
