Spending a combined four summers at Moose River Outpost, we have had the privilege of getting to know some tremendous people. We spent our MRO summers having loads of fun, ministering to some really neat kids, getting to know Christ better, and growing alongside staff members who quickly became some of our most formative friends.
Being a member of the MRO family has meant so much to us. Life, as we all know, comes with ups and downs—joys and sorrows. We have been blessed with these relationships that allow us to turn to these friends through it all. And time after time we are met with compassion, celebration, and comradery.
No matter the distance, no matter how long it has been, as soon as we walk through the doors to Merry Friendsmas it’s like picking up right where we left off. Gathering with our camp family truly feels like coming home, being surrounded with people who have shared a similar experience and who love each other. It doesn’t matter if we served alongside one another or if we just met that night, we are bonded. At the root of it all is Christ, the perfect foundation. What a blessing it has been for us to hear how God is working at MRO and in the lives of our friends over the years. And He is doing so much! This is what Paul envisioned in Hebrews 10:24-25 when he reminds us to “…spur one another on toward love…not giving up meeting together…but encouraging one another.”
We hope to see you at MRO’s Merry Friendsmas so we can pick up where we left off, December 6th-8th at Brookwoods! For more information click here to see the event on Facebook or email Seth for details.
