We just received an email from Allen Amason, who is leading the team:
"Greetings: the team has arrived safely at Elama. All is well - please pray for good weather." Blessings, Allen"
Elama is a camp envisioned by Mike Cantrell and brought to life with the help of many. Elama in Finnish means "life", and Mike's desire for the camp, which will host many youth in just a few short weeks, is that they will see and experience the life of Jesus through their experiences there. It is a work well worth the time and effort to pour into.
The St. James team will begin construction on two pavilions (and a few other smaller projects) to give those at the camp options for meeting space. Currently, there is no sheltered location for large groups to meet. We are praying that the construction, the simple joining together of wood and metal, will in some way be an instrument for the Holy Spirit to move in the lives of those who go to the camp.
The construction work can't proceed very easily in rain, which it is currently doing and which is forecast for the near future. Please pray that the Lord will grant favor and give them good weather and safety while they work.
