We have a day and half left of camp. The week has flown by. We are so encouraged that some of our group have been asked to share their stories with students during their discussion times at night. Many campers are opening up and asking our team different questions about life and relationships. It is going to be hard to say good bye on Saturday to our new friends.Read More
The Mission at SafeHouse started on a gray and dingy day, but was lit up by the staff and volunteer’s smiles and warm welcome.

School’s Out! O-U-T! Aahhh Summer! Summer Chills will begin soon! They are a time of hanging out together doing fun summer activities without having to hurry home to homework.

If we do this we might have to say no to many good things. We can be confident God is at work in all, even if we are not involved.Read More
