Summer 2020: Different, Yet the same
It’s been a different summer at Amnicon, to say the least. No meals in the Dining Hall, each camper sleeping in their own hammock, no showers for groups coming off trail, no trips to the Apostle Islands, and more.
These differences, however, have not prevented the constant – that youth and adults adventured out of their comfort zones to experience grace. We paddled, built fires, got soaked with rain, swatted bugs, and enjoyed sunsets just like always. We spent time in real and honest conversation centered on God’s promises. We built relationships, we learned in hands-on ways, and we shared safe space. We grew in self-confidence and we grew in our understanding of who God is in our lives. We stepped out in faith this spring to make this summer possible, because we knew people would need the ministry of Amnicon more than ever.
We’ve been affirmed in our decision – through the opportunity to live out our mission, through the gratitude our participants have expressed, and through the words of encouragement and financial support from you, our wonderful community of supporters. As a part of this community, you made a significant and direct impact on the lives of many people in need this summer.
Thank you for making adventure possible.
