Other than the family joys of marriage and bearing children, I have never felt so delighted to be involved in such a wonderful event.
Camp Barnabas has been a blessing to so many people and has impacted so many lives.Many heartfelt thanks go out to Paul and Cyndy Teas for bringing the camp to fruition. God chose the right people for His project. Im grateful that my family could play a small role in the realization of the camp.As the saying goes . . . When a door is closed, a window will open. In 1992 our door was slammed shut so traumatically that it leveled the entire house to its foundation.
Our daughter Lauren was diagnosed with bone cancer. How do you tell your twelve-year-old that she has cancer? What will she say? Will she be afraid shes going to die? When we finally told Lauren, her first question posed to us was, Does this mean I cant go back to camp?Little did we know that Laurens return to Kanakuk Kamp the following year would provide the small spark for Paul and Cyndy to establish Camp Barnabas—a place where kids are allowed to be kids and sickness takes a vacation for a small moment in time.
Camp Barnabas is indeed an awesome place.Heno has done a splendid job of weaving the camp story. Within the pages of this book you will be led through the lives that inspired and supported the foundation of this camp. Even in the bleakest moments of human existence, God shows us He has a plan.
Heno captures this story to inspire and share with others.Another saying that comes to mind is, There is always a bright light at the end of the tunnel. Our family has made it through that tunnel. I see the light shining through that window ... the light that is coming from all the wonderful people that make Camp Barnabas such an awesome place.Debe HauschildCamp ParentCamp Barnabas Board of Directors
