We—Autumn, Melody, and Carissa De Leon—have been given the opportunity to serve the Lord this summer as part of the Camp Joy Summer Ministry Team.
We are the oldest daughters to Michael and Cassandra De Leon. Our dad is a Pastor of Lighthouse Baptist Church in Rural Ohio.
Camp Joy is located in southern Wisconsin and operates year-round as a youth camp and conference center.
Every summer many hundreds of young people have their hearts challenged and lives changed as a result of this ministry. We know that this will be a great summer for us.
The first week in June will be a week of training and this will be followed by several weeks of putting our training into practice. Every day, we will be able to have a spiritual impact on lives and personally profit from the preaching of some of America’s greatest preachers.
This will be a summer when our faith is tested. We know that serving at Camp Joy will be physically and spiritually draining. We will also have to trust the Lord to provide for our finances, considering Autumn is looking forward to her Freshman year at college this fall, and Carissa and Melody will be taking Online College classes in the fall.
Camp Joy is a faith ministry. We are not payed an income from the camp. Income for the camp comes from the gifts of God’s people. Camp Joy has requested that we encourage people to support us this summer by sending donations for our summer support to Camp Joy.
We need your help in two ways. First of all, would you be kind enough to remember to pray for us this summer, that the Lord would give us the strength and wisdom for our ministry and make it spiritually profitable in the lives of the young people to whom we will minister?
Secondly, would you be able to be a part of our Support Team by sending a monetary gift to Camp Joy?
Simply indicate what you would like to do so and mail it to Camp Joy. (Camp Joy, W7725 Kettle Moraine Dr, Whitewater, WI 53190)
All donations are tax deductible and you will receive a receipt from Camp Joy for them. If you will do this, you will have a unique part in the ministry of Camp Joy.
We greatly appreciate whatever you are able to do. We will be posting an update to each of our Summer Support Team Members on www.walkingworthy.org and through email throughout the summer with prayer requests and praises so that you can share in the spiritual needs, prayer requests and blessings of this ministry. We expect it to be a summer that we will never forget.
Thank you so much for your interest and concern.
Autumn, Melody, and Carissa De Leon
