Susie here this month.... It’s the end of July and we have sizzled our way through a busy, eventful month. The lawns look a bit brown and there is no doubt that the rhododendrons have seen better days, but the team have loved warm water for sessions on the estuary, no waterproofs to wash at the end of each week and happy days in the sunshine.

July saw 5 primary schools visit the centre. They are amongst our biggest groups and it is lovely to see so many children enjoying the centre and also hearing about Jesus.

We also had a weekend mini ultimate adventure for our local youth group. 26 children came along and we had a lot of fun with the theme of pirates. It was great to see them dancing in the lounge to worship songs and tell them about the treasure they can find in God.

As the term finished we launched into our ‘Care for the Family’ single parent weeks. We are just part way through the second week and had a great time on the first one. It was described as a week of ‘wonder and joy’ and we certainly saw and heard God do amazing things in the lives of the mums and children. Whether it was the bongo drums in the lounge, digging holes and building sandcastles on the beach, climbing the new tower, jumping off sandbanks into the estuary, or enjoying the peace and quiet, each person seemed to find a place to be themselves and also see God’s loving care in each day.

Staff Team

It is really great to have extra people joining the team over the summer weeks and at the moment we have 4 summer team members, Hannah, Matt, Sophie and Nathan, and Rose (our daughter) is joining for a few weeks soon. They seem to have settled very much into life at MYD. At an intensely busy time of year the extra help makes such a difference but all of the team continue to love and serve the guests every day and do an amazing job.

The Inspection

Our inspection for the AALA license came round once again. The day went well and we have our licence.

Youth Work

At the moment there are 13 young people from our youth groups away at camp. That is great news and over the next few week’s lots is happening with our local youth work. Over recent weeks so many young people have been coming along on Fridays and we are excited about new ideas for the autumn which we will tell you about in later newsletters.

Prayer Points

  • That God will do amazing things in all of our family week.
  • For the Ultimate Adventure week and the same as point 1!
  • For the team to be filled up every day and have all the energy they need.
  • For staffing in the autumn – there are still spaces on the team.
  • That many young people will come to know Jesus as their personal Saviour through time away on summer camps.
  • For financial provision for ongoing projects.
  • For full unhindered access to Min-Y-Don for all of our guests.

I was reminded again this morning in daily reading notes about the importance of perseverance in prayer so that’s what we will do and we appreciate your prayers too so much. It is the foundation on which so much is built and we keep going.

And Finally...

  • Jake composed a beautiful song about Bacon
  • We had some happy times gathering in our lounge to cheer at the world cup football making sure that the whole of Arthog knew the score.
  • Chris borrowed the pink panther costume, let’s hope it really was just for summer camp!
Back again next month with more Min y Don news.
