Last night we returned from Pleasant Valley Bible Camp near Traverse City. We drove up Friday. The snow thickened with every mile. Within twenty miles of the camp the pines were laden with snow. As much as we love our life and ministry in the Inn it is refreshing to be able to get out for the weekend and enjoy the beauty of God’s creation. We love to travel into the North Country and there is nothing I love more than preaching to camps, conferences, retreats, banquets, seminars and churches. I preached four times over the weekend. The family sang in each session. We met in the new chapel. It was a beautiful building paneled with knotty pine.
During the weekend it was my privilege to fellowship with Dick Summer, the founder of the camp. I enjoyed hearing the wonderful stories of God’s provision and leading over the years of the camp. They boys spent a couple hours cross-country skiing. I visited the tubing hill with the girls.
The snow fell steadily all weekend. Sunday morning when I made my way to the chapel to study I honestly believe I have never seen such a beautiful snowfall. There must have been nearly two feet of snow on the ground.
