I hear about a lot of farewell tours but this one has me thinking a lot about life. My husband & I have had the privilege of meeting Third Day. Third Day has been around 25 years. My Husband & I are celebrating our 25th Anniversary this year. We are doing our own tour this year to celebrate our 25 yrs. It’s not final tour but it is a kick off for our next assignment from the Lord. Just like Third Day they too will have new adventures for God in their lives. 

It was such a blessing for us to go to see Third Day at many concerts. The experience was more than just watch & listening to music. Third Day reaches out to those who have not received Christ & causes those who do know Christ to go deeper in their walk. They spark revival and fire in your soul. 

God has used this band to bring liberty & freedom to many. Even though this is called a farewell tour, I think just like their name says, Yes it is the Third Day & Sunday is here. This is a new beginning for them and a new chapter in their lives. We will continue to pray for them and for God to continue to use them mightily in their new season of life. 

So make plans today to join them in this tribute to their fans. Below is a link to more information and some live concerts.

This was one of my favorite times:

The Summit International School of Ministry

We had the opportunity to visit The Summit International School of Ministry near Harrisburg, PA

From the time we walked on the property until the time we left we felt that this truly is a different place.

The Summit is a bible school of Time Square Church in New York. Founded in 1994 through the ministry of David Wilkerson, we are located in Grantville, Pennsylvania on a beautiful 100-acre campus is situated near the foothills of the Blue Mountains.

They define their ministry as, “Living for the benefit of others”. We observed this first hand. We saw the students and the staff serving the meals, doing the dishes, washing windows and what ever was needed to make sure all the guest that visited were comfortable and well taken care of.

Many students gave us their testimony of how their lives have been changed by their time at the school. The students unplug all their electronic devises in order to hear The voice of God in a personal way. The students are involved in community outreaches, student led clubs, and so much more.

The Summit has a two year program and a post-graduate internship program. The Summit has articulation agreements with various Bible Schools and universities which accept their units toward the completion of a 4-year college degree. Their partnership with churches and para-churches offer a great opportunity for internship all over the world and may even led to a full time position.

For those who want to make a difference in the world this school will give you what you need to live your life, “for the benefit of others”.

It’s more than a bible school, it’s a place for transformation.

A Camp with Kingdom Impact -Thomas Road Outpost

(Picture taken from the camp)

This October we were blessed with a tour of the Thomas Road Outpost Camp. This was very excited because we live in Northern Michigan and the Camp is in Lynchburg, VA and we have been giving to this project.

Before I tell you about the camp, I want to share about my camping experience. I don’t remember how old I was, but I was old enough that it made an impact on my life. But this impact was not a Kingdom impact. I was so excited to be going on this camping trip with my friends. I had some really close friends that we did everything together and this was going to be the best time, so I thought. We were going to go canoe on the Au Sable River in Michigan.

To keep this story short I will just hit the highlights. I had a leader who didn’t look out for us, instead he brought drugs to give us. Not really understanding the impact this was going to have on me, wanting to be a part of the gang, I participated. Little did I know he also had other intentions. This was horrifying and even as I write this I can’t even think of the details, even though I have been set free from my past, I have no use in giving those events another look except to use it as a stepping stone to tell you that experience was no “Kingdom Impact”. There are many children who need to be rescued from the chance of having that same experience.

That is one reason I am passionate about this camp. My husband is the other. He had a vision many years ago about a place like Thomas Road Outpost Camp. One that would give so many a great outdoor experience and reach them for the Gospel. When we visited the camp in October we took a four wheeler to the top of the mountain. Along the way we saw the cabins that are being built, the zip line area, the place they will be having outdoor survival activities, and so much more.

Thomas Road Baptist Church has been involved in camping programs for over fifty years. In March 2014 they were given 500-acre parcel of land in the midst of the Blue Ridge Parkway’s Peaks of Otter Region. It was donated to be repurposed as a youth camp with the emphasis of reaching at-rist youth from Virginia and the surrounding areas.  They also will be having Marriage seminars and other events.

Their focus is to reach thousand of children each year through Christ-centered camping experience in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. This is a place that children can leave the pressures and distractions of modern life behind and just be kids. They will experience camp life, have fun, but will be given hope and love. TRO encourages campers toward a life changing relationship with Jesus Christ.

Each year they receive thousands of requests from the area but are unable to house them due to the limited space. They have the potential to reach so many with The Gospel of Jesus, bringing hope and healing to them. So that is why I am writing this post. I am reaching out to whoever reads this to please consider giving to this worth while project. Help TRO make that “Kingdom Impact” to as many as possible. You can help change a life.
