Florence Amigos

About a quarter of Florence Church is living, at least part time, at Amigo Centre (Mennonite camp) this summer. Rose Lind, Emily and Margaret Wenger have been on staff. Jason Lichti is the program director. And Jason and Lori, Joshua, Jesse and John Lichti live in their house on camp grounds. John Mark Wenger and Riana Beachy Hasenick have been campers.

I made a "pastoral call" to camp last Wednesday, including eating "pirate" lunch with Rose, Emily and Jesse and a short visit with Margaret. You can read more at

I have been asked to speak at KNOW JESUS, a junior high event that culminates the summer for Amigo Centre and Camp Friedenswald. Their staff members work together to provide worship and activity leadershp for that event. It takes place the weekend of August 7-9 at Goshen College.

Willard Fenton-Miller was appointed to the Camp Friedenswald board at Central District Conference in June.

And our VIBRANT RURAL CAMP-IN RETREAT will take place at Amigo Centre on Labor Day weekend. Florence has a long history of camping out at Amigo Park in early September, but this year, with the financing of the Lilly Clergy Renewal Grant, we are taking a different kind of retreat, expenses paid, and food provided.

Hmmmm....what do we make of these camp connections?
