Our website has changed!

Hello, everyone!  Welcome to our newly updated website.  We hope the changes help you find information more easily

The look is not the only thing that has changed.  Our “Home” page is now static (that means it does not change when new posts are posted) and features our former “About Us” page.  Blog posts can be easily accessed by clicking the tab above or the link in the right side bar on the “Home” page.  The left side bar has our fund raising thermometer, a link for the organization that collects funds on our behalf, and various ways to follow us and stay connected.

The tabs at the top of the page will help you navigate the site. The tabs are:

Blog posts: Besides the right side bar on the “Home” page, you may click on this tab, and it will take you to our blog posts.  Note-the writing of the blog post is very small when accessed by the tab.  To make it larger and more readable, click on the title of the post, and the post will become bigger.

Contact Us:  This is self explanatory.

Follow Us:   If you are not following us on Facebook or on WordPress, you are invited to access the “Follow us” tab to learn how to start following us.  Following us on Facebook and WordPress provides you updates and information on what we are doing on a more regular basis.

Email Sign-up: Access this tab if you want to sign up to receive our email updates directly from us.  This “Email Update Sign-up” is different then following our blog or following us on Facebook because our email update list is the list we use when we want to notify everyone that a new blog has posted or if we have urgent information or prayer requests we need to share with our friends/relatives/supporters.  We also use the email to let everyone know of upcoming trip itineraries (the blog site is open to anyone who accesses it, and some information is not safe to disseminate to the general public).

Prayer:  This list will have ongoing prayer requests as well as new and time sensitive requests.  Many ask us how they can better pray for us.  We hope this will help keep you up to date on how to pray for us.

Support our Ministry/Donate:  We are not employed by the Adventure Learning Centre and Camp and do not receive monetary compensation for the work we do while serving at the Adventure Learning Camp.  Our sole form of financial support is the generous contributions of others who, like us, love Jesus and desire to see needs met and the Gospel proclaimed to all men, women and children in this world. Periodically people ask us how they can make a tax deductible donation to our ministry work.  There are now 2 ways to access Shepherd Staff Mission Facilitator’s website from our website.  The first is by clicking the link in the left side bar on our “Home” page or right side bar on the “blog post” page.  The other is by clicking the “Support our ministry/Donate” tab above and then clicking on the link.

Upcoming Events:  This tab will keep everyone updated on events that are coming up in our personal lives, in our ministry work or in the ALC&C ministry.  This is where we will post not-so-detailed trip information (so you know if we will be coming to your area), important events in our lives and in the ministry here, needs and wish lists, etc.

I hope this has been helpful in orientating you to our new website!  Enjoy.

Picture Update

It has only been a week since our last blog, so there are not many new pictures.  Nonetheless, we hope you will find the ones we do post helpful as you try to stay updated on what is going on with us.

 

Look who is not the tallest ALC person anymore!  Zachary (6'3) has passed Mark Wallace (6'2) by an inch.

Summer day camp at the Centre ended last Friday, August 1st.  The girl staff and counselors had one last night together before everyone scattered.  They piled into the Explorer for a Dairy Queen run.  (I almost got to go but had to stay behind and welcome a late coming group to Camp.)

We had to say good-bye to Huram Joseph on Saturday.  He left to go back to Florida on Sunday.  We enjoyed having him here this summer.  He spent Saturday evening with us eating homemade personal pan pizzas and watching "Son of God".

This past weekend Ms. Ada had Boys Brigade here at Camp.  It was fun hearing the laughter of children around Camp.

Over the weekend our electrician Fabian and his helper were at Camp to start putting electrical wiring into the staff cottage.   Our general contractor Scott will be in the cottage working soon as well. Construction is finally underway!

Saturday, Tim began the all day project of installing air conditioning in Cabin 1.  It also took some work on Sunday as well since he ran into some issues on Saturday.  Too bad he couldn't enjoy cool a/c while he worked, he went through at least 3 t-shirts.

On Monday, though it was a Bahamian holiday, we continued working.  Not only were we still serving Boys Brigade.  Tim continued working on installing air conditioners.  This time, the a/c was going in to Cabin 4.

By God's grace, Tim was able to get the a/c's installed and functioning in both Cabins before the Tuesday arrival of our group from Washington.

Tuesday we welcomed a mission team all the way from Gig Harbor, Washington.  When this picture was taken, these poor people had  arrived on the island after traveling all night and all day.  They left at 1045pm from Washington (that is 145am our time) and arrived in Nassau at 207pm.

Zachary helping his Dad work on the staff cottage.  He is helping to bust up the concrete to lay pipes.  What 15 year old boy does not working with power tools?

39 children came to Camp for a VBS hosted by the Harboview Mission Team.  They started their day with a coloring activity.  It was neat getting to see the young people in the group working with the children.

Of course no VBS would be complete with out action songs!

What better place to have a VBS then at Adventure Learning Camp.  It is safer and has more green space then most churches.  We are hoping more mission teams take advantage of our space and host more VBS outreaches for children here at Adventure Learning Camp!
