Lexi, Michigan

We would first like to say “Thank you” for awarding Lexi with a camp scholarship. Words don’t seem to reflect the impact this scholarship made on, not only Lexi, but her father and I as well. The blessing began with the financial gift and feathered out in so many other areas.

Her priceless experience allowed her to leave with things that mirror what we as parents teach her but also things that we plant seeds for but just can’t make grow like life experiences can; a growing sense of competency created outside of the home, a more defined sense of identity, the art of building healthy friendships, and the ability to have her character molded beyond the scope of our influence. Her father and I sent her off with our blessing, stretched our wings as we purposed not to live in fear, and and waited anxiously for Lexi’s return to get a full recount of her experience. Your scholarship made this possible…

Lexi’s list of camp favorites was anything but condensed. The first thing she shared with us was how they learned about Jesus and how to have a closer relationship with him. We have watched that manifest over the past several weeks since she has been home. Beyond that was walking the high rope which was a victory after not only having epilepsy but also living with hip dysplasia (no hip socket) for 8 years and enduring a brutal reconstructive surgery that has resulted in her being able to do things she never dreamed of. She went hiking in the woods, horseback riding, climbed the rock wall, went swimming, rode go-carts, made new lifelong friends, spent more time outside than inside, and as her face lit up, she said: Mom, I got to do new things and wasn’t afraid.” That melts a mommy’s heart.
