session three recap

Session 3 has taken off on the island of Tapawingo! Campers have been studying the

book of Hebrews and learning about how Jesus is the new and better covenant. We’ve also had

amazing speakers at vespers. Miss Helen spoke on Monday night and shared photos of

Tapawingo back when she was a camper in the 80s! She spoke about the true, hidden treasure of

Jesus found on the island of Tapawingo, and how it was worth far more than anything found in

this world. Miss Annie spoke on Tuesday night about trusting the Lord even when we can’t see

or feel him. She encouraged campers to let their faith inform their feelings, rather than allowing

feelings to shape their faith.

Campers and counselors are having a blast in their activities! From waterskiing to sailing

to archery, there is never a dull moment on the island. Along with many activities, campers have

been going on hikes and overnights. The Cherokee cabin arrived from their overnight

Wednesday morning. They told stories of Miss Brianna starting a fire despite the pouring rain!

While Cherokee was dealing with rain in the woods, the island got some rain as well, and shifted

to rainy day activities Tuesday afternoon! The campers and counselors had tons of fun between

cabin games and a counselor fashion show, with campers as the fashion designers!

Besides the downpour on Tuesday, the weather at Tapawingo has been beautiful this week!

There have been vibrant sunrises with the morning mist rising from the lake, a breezy sunset during

Gospel on the Rocks, and lots of sunshine. We thank God for providing Tapawingo with such

wonderful weather, activities jam-packed with fun, and for the Holy Spirit moving in the hearts

of campers! Thank you for all your prayers for the work that is being done here! We ask for

continued prayers for our island, staff, and campers. Onto session 4!

We are forever grateful for Tapawingo. It is absolutely a place of joy and provided my daughter with so many great memories. My daughter has shared these memories and teachings with friends and family. Her experience has been life changing and we continue to watch her faith grow into something so much deeper than we expected. We want to thank the counselors and staff of Tapawingo. You are so committed and dedicated to teaching these girls. You are such amazing young ladies and have such a special gift.
