Camp Lutherwood annual auction coming up

main image

Good Wednesday morning,

About 20 years ago, my family attended Port Madison Lutheran Church. At Bethany, Pastors Marty Dasler and Paula Burchill were kind enough to allow our three daughters to go with the Bethany confirmands for a camp at Lutherwood Camp and Retreat Center on Lake Samish. Our church just didn't have a critical mass of young people.

I will always remember Bethany's welcoming attitude toward our family, and the wonderful week they had at Camp Lutherwood on the high-ropes and in the water, but most of all in Christian companionship.

Pastor Marty later took our daughters to Tecate for a servant trip.

I'm not the only one with memories of Camp Lutherwood. It struggles financially, and we can help by supporting the annual Camp Lutherwood Auction  at 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 16, at Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Everett. Find out more at www.charityauction.bid/lutherwood19.

Quilts, baby kits, school kits all boxed up

Good Tuesday to you,

As you can see by the photo, the crew that came in to box the quilts, baby kits and school kits had plenty of time afterward to quilt. You absolutely wouldn't believe how fast the boxing went. And the spirit our volunteers had was contagious. They made my work this morning go fast, too.

The items will be taken to Redeemer Lutheran Church in Ballard. Joe and Linda Sommerseth do that. From there, they are shipped to Baltimore, Md., where Lutheran World Relief has its headquarters. And from there they are shipped throughout the world to area where families don't have warmth, don't have school supplies, and don't have things for new babies.

It's the Holy Spirit at work.
