Many of you are already aware that at our last regional missionary meeting, I was made director of the camp in Iguatu. I am being "phased in" from now until May.
Last Tuesday the current director, Gary Barber, and myself went to the camp to look things over. While there, I got some pictures.
Welcome to Camp! This is the first sign you see, indicating the entrance to the camp.
Perhaps one of the biggest landmarks of the Iguatu Camp is this bridge with spans the lake. As you can see, the lake is kinda low. We are praying for water.
One big attraction is the "Tarzan Rope", from which people swing into the lake. Not much swinging going on at this point, once again due to the water levels.
The camp boasts a nice sports pad, suitable for basket ball and "futebol de salćo".
Here we are looking from about the middle of the bridge at the sports pad and the dining hall.
This is one of the boy's cabins, back in the woods.
Here is another one, complete with hammock.
Last year, about 1,500 people were ministered to at the Iguatu Camp. We are hoping for a similar number this year, although that will be made difficult as we already had to cancel one retreat for lack of water. Gary Barber told me that this was only the second time he had to cancel camp, in his 20+ years as director. The other time was for flooding.
One of my goals is to develop a decent website for the camp, which I have already started working on. You can get a preview here.
