Washington Fires! Due to hot weather, lower-than-usual rainfall, and tinder-dry forests, 2015 was the worst year in recent history for wildfires in Washington State. In the month of August, Huge firest burned out of control to the west, south, and east of the Young Disciple property. For several weeks, the Inchelium area was under a Level 1 evacuation notice, which means to be on the alert for possible evacuation. Finally, September brought cooler weather and much-needed rain. The fires will smolder until snow comes, but the danger is now greatly subdued. We are thanking God for His hand of protection over the YD Camp and office.
Young Disciple Youth Bible Camp. The 2015 camp season is now a memory—but the results will live on. The campers' testimonies on Sabbath evening revealed that a great work was being accomplished in the hearts of many young people. Camper after camper expressed his or her determination to plant a standard for God and to give Him full control of their life. The camp staff joined YD personnel to ensure the 2015 season was the best ever! A huge vote of appreciation to counselors, food service and other service personnel, as well as speakers and class teachers.
Even as the tents and other temporary structures are being taken down, plans for next year's camps are already in progress. Dates: July 10–17 and July 17–24.
