Lazy Stream:

The Pleasures and Perils of Summer

O

ur kids grew up camping on Manitoulin Island. They enjoyed two weeks at Spring Bay Camp each summer while Dad came back and forth the two and a half hours every couple of days from Sudbury. They were, in my parental memory, the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer. There’s something about summer relaxation. Something refreshing and invigorating, but also something restful, and easy-going. How can you resist it? One quiet sun-drenched day, Michael and I borrowed a row boat, went out a ways onto Lake Kagawong and dropped our lines for a little fishing. We may both have fallen asleep. But whatever happened, the wind came up very quickly, the rain started pouring and there was lightening in the distance. We sped (as fast as oars could take us) for 4

the shore and some cover. It was then I learned of the meandering, sleepinducing peril of summer. You can be lulled into a dangerous security when you relax a little too freely. There are reasons to be alert. Our summer issue of Network offers several perspectives on summer from your own guide to a ‘staycation’ close to home, to a daring challenge adventure in “Out of the Boat.” As you enjoy the lazy stream of a relaxing summer, remember to keep your eyes on the horizon, and your heart engaged with your God. Enjoy the pleasures but avoid the perils of summer. And stay tuned to the adventure!

Mission to Haiti Canada

compound which contains a church, orphanage, and school. During my two trips I worked with the construction team hauling pails of concrete, painting, and organizing materials. A few days were spent travelling to the four schools supported by MTH Canada and helping with the sponsorship and medical teams.

I

went on my first trip to Haiti in January 2009. After hearing the stories from my family, I knew I needed to go and experience this country for myself.

I went to Haiti to help the people there. Little did I know how much they would help me. I learned that I can live with less. I saw miracles while working in the medical clinic and I know without a doubt that God shows up when we call on him. I also went with the goal of meeting a child to support. The most unique quality about MTH Canada is that you are able to meet the child that you sponsor and I was so excited to find a young girl who needed the support and has been able to attend school for the past 3 years. Education is one thing that can set Haitians free from their

In a country where 9.7 million people live, 80% of them well under the poverty line. 90% of their schools are NGO run and fewer than 30% of the students reach grade 6. Most Haitians live on $2 or less a day. The children (90%) suffer from waterborne diseases and internal parasites. Yet with everything seemingly against them, Haiti has a heartbeat of love, thankfulness, and kindness. MTH Canada travels to the same small community of Cabaret and works with Pastor Charles from a

16TH ANNUAL STOMP DAY CAMP, where kids have fun, find new friends, build teams, discover chapel (worship and small group discussions), enjoy group games plus time to go to a water park once a week. Trips to African Lion Safari and Westfield Heritage Village are also included in the exciting events that are planned for this summer. Stomp is different from a lot of other day camps for a lot of reasons! First and foremost, God has blessed Calvary with an AWESOME facility! We have resources that not a lot of other day camps have. Also, Stomp has been around for a long time, and so we have a lot of practical experience in the sector. We have campers who come year after year from Grade 1 all the way up to grade 8, and then want to join our staff! Word of mouth is a big deal, and a lot of our advertising is as simple as a conversation from one parent to another. We’re also backed by the best pastoral staff ever! Not to mention, financially speaking, Stomp is one of the cheaper camps on the market, but our program gets rave reviews! Stomp has a terrific team lined up this year with Matt Putt at the Helm and Rachel Cowal as his right hand man(woman)! There will be 6 full time staff, plus a dozen volunteers. There is a great mix of seasoned veterans who have a lot of experience at camp along with some that will be working at Stomp for the first time bringing bright fresh perspectives! With respect to team bonding, they’re committed to the spiritual enrichment of the staff. Meeting for prayer at the start of every day, and on Fridays they will be working through a series on Spiritual Leadership. They will also spend a training day getting to know each other, and will have regular hangouts throughout the summer! Stomp has room for 60 campers. All for the low price of $110 per week for the hours of 9am to 4pm. Extra hours available for an additional fee. To register: online www.calvarycambridge. com/STOMP or drop by the office to fill out the necessary forms.

The University of Guelph – Bachelor of Commerce (Human Resource Management). This year I’m taking some HR courses, a history course on European Culture, and a music production course!

Crippled, Christ. Coffee. HOW DID YOU CONNECT TO CALVARY AND FIND OUT ABOUT WORKING FOR STOMP? My recently married big brother Ben worked at Stomp with his recently married wife. Did I mention my big brother just got married?? Anywho, I first heard about Stomp from him. He actually just got married recently…did I mention that? WHAT ABILITIES DO YOU HAVE THAT WILL MAKE YOU A GREAT LEADER FOR STOMP? God blessed me with wonderful parents who modeled Christ-centered leadership from day 1. I’ve learned more from them than I could ever express appreciation for. Not to mention a love for kids and ministry! WHAT IS YOUR DESIRE FOR THE KIDS OF STOMP THIS YEAR? IF THEY COULD TAKE ONE THING WITH THEM AFTER SPENDING A SUMMER WITH YOU WHAT WOULD YOU WANT THAT TO BE? I would LOVE it if some campers decided that they wanted to come to church on a regular basis, irrespective of their family situation or personal faith. And if that does happen, I hope that whatever church they chose to attend greets them readily.

STOMP ASSISTANT DIRECTOR: Rachel Cowal WHERE DID YOU GROW UP? On a dirt road an hour out of Ottawa - White Lake Ontario :) WHERE DO YOU PRESENTLY GO TO SCHOOL, AND WHAT COURSES ARE YOU TAKING? I presently go to Masters College and Seminary and I’m working towards a Bachelor of Religious Education in Pastoral Ministry WHAT IS YOUR LIFE PLAN?

Dancing, Energetic and Adventurous HOW DID YOU CONNECT TO CALVARY AND FIND OUT ABOUT WORKING FOR STOMP? I was connected to this opportunity by the past intern at Calvary and my friend at Masters College and Seminary. WHAT ABILITIES DO YOU HAVE THAT WILL MAKE YOU A GREAT LEADER FOR STOMP? My abilities come from God and the strength to lead are wholly dependent on my relationship with Him. I have been blessed with many opportunities in the past and a natural love for kids. WHAT IS YOUR DESIRE FOR THE KIDS OF STOMP THIS YEAR? IF THEY COULD TAKE ONE THING WITH THEM AFTER SPENDING A SUMMER WITH YOU WHAT WOULD YOU WANT THAT TO BE? My desire is that each and every child that comes to STOMP is introduced and connected to Christ, and there would be lasting relationships created between kids and their fellow campers, counselors, the church and Christ.

Family Fun Day@Calvary by Paul Williams

T

o every season there is a turn... It is summer again and our thoughts turn to the outside world.  Fresh growth in our gardens.  Our lawn is green and fresh.  Neighbours that have been hibernating come out.   Mosquitoes carry off our picnics. It’s wonderful to move into summer.   At Calvary, summer means a number of things.  We know that there will be a day camp called STOMP and meetings will usually have a BBQ involved.   One of the most exciting things that happens each summer for the last ten years is our SoapBox Derby.  But what is it all about?  Well, I think this requires us to go back to the beginning to see what started it.   Let me introduce you to Billy Moore.   Billy has an amazing story of God’s grace, told in his book “Pathway to Hope”.  His heart to help Jr high kids and love of racing birthed the idea of having a Soapbox derby.   So he gathered a number of Jr high kids at the time and they built a number of soapbox cars and hosted the first Soapbox event.  The vision behind it was to have a safe, fun and positive atmosphere for kids to be a part of.  It was completely new and there were only a few kids or so kicking the tires, but it was just the beginning. The next number of years were fairly low key.  The heart and vision was still strong, but in 2006 there were only

12 racers that competed.  At this time we had a couple of younger kids pushing the cars back up the hill so they could race again.  Thankfully, we were able to get a few donations as prizes and it was a small beginning.
