New Executive Director at Camp Li-Lo-Li

In 2009, Terry Wilson, along with his wife Shirley and her mother, Doris Stanfield, came to live and serve at Camp Li-Lo-Li as the Executive Director of camp.  Their presence at camp was far more than just living and serving here, but rather they embodied all that Camp would strive to be in a demonstration of true servant leadership.  Their contributions to the ministry of Camp Li-Lo-Li and the greater call of making disciples are too numerable to count.  

In January 2016, Terry communicated to the board that the Lord had been leading him to a new ministry as the Executive Director of ECS (Emmaus Correspondence School) Ministries in Dubuque, Iowa.  This opportunity seemed like a natural fit for him and truly seemed to be the Lord's call on their lives.  While we recognized that the move to ECS would be a great fit for Terry, it was with mixed emotion that we received his resignation and began the prayerful pursuit of a new Executive Director for Camp Li-Lo-Li. We are so thankful for Terry, Shirley and Doris’ commitment to camp.  They remained at camp through the end of August in order to serve well to the end, as they have always demonstrated.

The Board of Directors of Camp Li-Lo-Li formed a search committee to start the process of identifying the candidate that the Lord would be leading to the important ministry at Camp.  Through the spring, a number of inquiries were made and three applications were received.  Time was spent with each of the candidates to determine who the Lord would be equipping for the service at camp. Based on the search committee’s recommendation, the Board agreed to appoint Jonathan Benson as the new Executive Director of Camp Li-Lo-Li effective August 1, 2016.  Jon, with his wife Shona and their four children have been part of the ministry at Camp for many years.  Jon and Shona first met at camp in 1993, so it has always had a special place in their hearts.  

Through this process, Jon and Shona were commended to the Lord’s work by their home assembly, Northgate Bible Chapel in Rochester, New York. They will serve at Camp and in various other ministries that they have already been involved in.  Shona has been appointed as Camp Registrar and they look forward to working together on this important responsibility.


Please continue to pray for the ministry at Camp Li-Lo-Li.  Remember Stacy Bodder and his family and Josiah Gefell as they serve full-time in the maintenance of the camp buildings and property.  Please uphold Jon, Shona and their family as they transition into their new roles full-time.

We are excited by all that the Lord has been doing and by all that He will continue to do in the making of disciples to the Glory of God through the ministry at Camp Li-Lo-Li!

If you do have any questions, please email director@liloli.org or call camp at 716-945-4900.

A Life Well Lived! A Tribute to Midge Northrop

On April 30th, we marked the passing of a life that was part of the first generation of Camp's ministry, namely Midge Northrop. She was born in 1918 and went home to be with the Lord on April 14, 2016. She trusted the Lord at age 13 and faithfully lived her life for Him. She was always a wonderful friend and supporter of Camp Li-Lo-Li and worked tirelessly behind the scenes. She will be greatly missed but the impact she had was eternal.

Our dear sister, Midge also loved to write poetry and this one was read by her grandson, Nathan at her memorial service.

SATISFIED

Each day as I walk with Jesus
In the shadow of His love,
I am blessed beyond all measure
With the help He gives from above

Day by day He sends new mercies,
He works all things for good;
His promises never fail me,
They the test of time withstood

And in the day of trouble,
Every burden He does bear,
When I lift my heart to Jesus
And call to Him in prayer.

His eyes are watching o're me
In whatever path I take.
He will never, never leave me,
Nor will He me forsake.

Each day the outlook's brighter
With the hope of what's ahead;
We'll praise the Lord forever,
For the ways in which He led.

What a future lies before us
When all tears are wiped away;
To our loved ones all united;
For God's long eternal day.

When I fall asleep in Jesus,
Then awake close by His side;
In righteousness I'll see His face,
And I'll be SATISFIED

Psalm 17:15 - "As for me, I will behold Thy face in righteousness.
I shall be SATISFIED when I awake with Thy likeness.

Great time at the 2016 Camp Li-Lo-Li Directors Meeting!

Every year we gather all our summer Camp Directors, Staff Directors and Assistant Camp Directors together to talk about the summer. This past Saturday, we met as we have for many years to get some of these issues out of the way before the summer starts. We thank those that were able to come for giving up yet another Saturday of their busy lives to go over the Staff Training for the summer and to think about some of the practical and spiritual priorities for our camp season.

For six hours, they face a constant overload of information and they do it with a smile! The training itself is long but so important as we think through our response to emergencies that may come up during their sessions. We pray always that our weeks will be free of incidents, but we need to have plans in place just in case. It is also important that we are consistent from week to week for the sake of our campers and staff.

We live in an increasing dangerous and dark world and strive to do all we can to keep the influence of the world out of camp. We want our campers and their parents to have confidence that we have done all we can to provide a safe and happy environment for their children. We want to be keenly aware of the dangers and yet not be dragged down by them Please for wisdom and discernment for our directors and their staff.

It is exciting also to hear about their program plans for the summer! Every year they bring great creativity to their programs and this year is no different! If you know of any young people who are wondering what to do this summer, bring them to camp! It is going to be a great year! We are looking forward to seeing the Bible come alive for young people!
