Just four years ago, new hope was awakened in 37 foster children attending Royal Family Kids Camp for the first time, hearing the good news that God knows the plans He has for them--plans to give them a hope and a future! We have maintained a growing relationship with those campers--several of whom are now in high school--and at a recent retreat, we studied that same promise again, although this time with a much more practical perspective with adulthood just a few years away.
We enjoy each opportunity with the now high-school students, providing guidance through the teen years. Whether we are out snow-shoeing, playing broomball, or competing in a cookie bake-off, these are moments that matter. Even more, these times together give us the opportunity to explore God's truth and promises together. Each time we connect with these kids, they realize we believe in them and in the plans God has for them - that God has made them for a purpose and each of our pasts help to shape our future. We are with them on this "Climb" as they journey toward the top and discover that they can make a difference!
