Camp and Respite
"Encouraging Christian Action"
Welcome to our family farm, just a place to get away and .......... Home to thousands of campers in the last several years.
The Lord has blessed our family and given us an opportunity to share His blessings with those who touch our lives and glorify Him. Some time ago we created a non-profit foundation chartered on the premise that we would use our time and talents to encourage Christian action. We chose the name The Ebenezer Acres Foundation as we had recently named our farm, Ebenezer Acres, based on 1 Samuel 7:12. This passage tells of the Israelites winning a great victory in battle and Samuel erecting an “Ebenezer” to memorialize the place where God helped them. The Message translation from 1 Samuel 7 reads: Samuel took a single rock and set it upright between Mizpah and Shen. He named it "Ebenezer" (Rock of Help), saying, "This marks the place where God helped us." Even today God hears and answers our prayers just as He did for Samuel so long ago. We have endured battles and difficulties in our lives and have experienced firsthand the Lord working modern day miracles and guiding us through to victories. Our farm and foundation serve as a reminder of God’s victories in our life and are intended to glorify Him alone.
As a family we are constantly asking the Lord for help and eagerly accepting God’s peace, wisdom and blessings. The area we are often times remiss in is erecting modern day Ebenezer’s giving God the glory and praise and thanking the body of Christ that He uses to accomplish His work on earth today. From time to time we are able to open our farm free of charge to thank you for being the Church, the body of Christ as we believe God intended it to be. The unique blend of talents we witness is nothing short of miraculous. We encourage all to continue to use your talents to the Glory of God as has already been so richly demonstrated to us. Please see the "Calendar and Contact Us" tabs above for additional details on visiting with us.
