Ministry Highlights and Prayer Focus

Kids and Camp

For over 40 years, the children of Four Corners Home for Children have been able to attend 1 to 2 weeks of summer camp at Cross Bar X Youth Camp in Durango, Colorado.  This Christian camp provides a safe atmosphere where children and teens are mentored by caring adults, presented with the Gospel of Jesus, taught life skills, and receive individual attention that is often lacking in the lives of children today.  They are encouraged in their spiritual growth and receive encouraging notes throughout the year from their counselors and camp staff members.

While at camp, the kids participate in canoeing, archery, horseback riding, crafts, and Bible study.  They can also enjoy the high ropes course, zip line, and giant swing.  They participate in night hikes that allow them to view the dark skies filled with stars.  It a wonderful place and often the highlight of our kids’ summer.

Please be in prayer for our children as they attend camp during the following dates:   Brittney (7/19 to 7/24); Sonny, Taylor, and Darius (7/26 – 7/31).  Mikka attended camp June 21 – 26 and had a wonderful time.

Prayer Focus For July

  • Praise God for the opportunity our children have to attend a Christian camp where they can expand their knowledge of who Jesus is and His plan for their lives.
  • Pray for safety for each child as they are involved in summer activities.
