Mission Board News for June

As we approach summer we are praying for our Covenant Camps – Covenant Harbor in Lake Geneva and Covenant Point in Iron River MI. Both camps are a place where people of all ages, through various types of camps, can go to experience God’s creation, develop relationships with other campers, staff and God. They also have a lot of fun. Some things that have been said about the camps: “God spoke to me through his creation, which helped me to again realize his great power and love, leading me to rededicate my life to God’s purposes”. “My daughter felt comfortable going to camp alone because the counselors and cabin mates make instant friends”.

We are also praying for Covenant Children’s Home now Freedom House. Freedom House was started 1983 as a walk-in shelter by family therapist Nedda Simon in Wyanet IL. Through the years a Sexual Violence Program was added and a Legal Advocate Office opened. In 2003 Freedom House moved to the Covenant Children’s Home. They offer safety and security to women and children who need their assistance. They also have 4 transitional apartments which may be available for up to a two-year stay. In 2017 they served over 800 clients and provided more than 4000 nights of shelter, plus countless hours of medical and legal advocacy, counseling, prevention education and professional training.g the homes.
