Asante Children's Choir



As Christians we take care of widows and orphans.  That's what we do.  When we had an opportunity to host Asante we did not hesitate.

We did an outreach into the community in partnership with Cazadero Community Church to bring these lil' ones to to the area for a concert in our chapel.   Next was the phone call, can you house them for the week?  Absoluletly!  Curt volunteered to cook, Loretta rounded up 21 sleeping bags and on Tuesday, Dec 9th the 45' bus crossed the bridge into camp. 21 children, taken off the streets of Uganda, 5 leaders, 2 bus drivers from Portland, Pat Park the area coordinator and lots of rain all descended upon Camp Caz. Our hearts were immediately touched by their big smiles and grateful spirits.  All caregivers are called "Auntie" or "Uncle" and the children give LOTS of HUGS!  Their devotions are a thrill to experience with the children leading praise music, dancing and lots of drumming.  Not all the children are orphans, some have single parents that cannot afford to care for their children.  All have seen great suffering, yet are full of JOY!

In spite of heavy rains which prevented people from coming long distances, we had 46 locals brave the storms and with the 30 Asante group, we had a total of 76 in the chapel for a lively performance of "Jericho....moving forward".  The children did a redition of "Hark, the Herald Angel Sing" that is stuck in my head with it's great beat and many of us cried during "Silent Night".  I have been so blessed to be a part of loving these lil' ones and giving them a glass of water, literally, as Jesus commands us to do.  

I'm going to see them on Friday night to fill up my hug quota. They are singing in many venues around Sonoma County and I pray you get a chance to experience their love for Jesus and their JOY!

Jenness Park meets Camp Caz



The Director of Jenness Park, Barry Lloyd came to Caz with his wonderful family.  We had an insightful weekend of learning from the best.  Barry gave us good advice regarding camp operations.  We had good food, fun and fellowship around the campfire.  We were so encouraged by their support and prayers.  We're so glad we're a part of the family of God!

"We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers."  I Thessalonians 1:2

Air Force Honor Guards



Several groups were represented on Sunday, including the Elks Club from Petaluma.  The Air Force Honor Guard stood at attention during the entire Memorial Service "guarding" the grounds and keeping us safe.  The Navy Honor Guard was also there and did the official Flag presentation to the widow, then the bugler played "Taps".  That is so emotional.  It gets to me every time.  The service was beautiful and well attended.  The family and many community residents were very appreciative that we were able to host this significant event.

Our chapel is back in service!



After 2 1/2 years of NOT having a chapel, this is BIG news!  We have our chapel for worship services.  The Lord is good!!!!  Many groups will be using it this season.  Our first service was for a community resident who passed way.  The camp meant a lot to him and his desire was to have his Memorial Service at the camp.   God's timing is perfect. Campers on Misson were scheduled last fall to finish the chapel during the week of March 24 - 28th. The Memorial Service was held on Sunday, March 30th.  God's timing is perfectly amazing!!!! Thank the Lord for Ray Pardee and the Campers on Mission...

Work Weekend with FBC Clearlake



Pastor Larry Fanning came up last weekend with 27 in his group from First Baptist Church, Clearlake and transformed the camp - much of it in one day.  

Highlights: On the hillside, they did some major cleaning and now the chapel is shining, ready for worship.  All the wood from the downed trees was brought down the hill, split and stacked; ready for campfire use.  Can you taste the s'mores??? The Prayer Garden has been cleaned up and a wooden cross is towering in the middle.  We do have residents which live in the Prayer Garden: Chirp and Dale, Twitter and Flitter, our zebra finches, are waiting for you to visit. A crew of men milled some redwood logs in preparation for new campfire benches.  Our amazing redwood carver, Ed created another piece of art, a redwood eagle with a salmon that was caught from Austin Creek, of course.  In person, the carving is spectacular with so much detail. Next time you come to camp you get to do a treasure hunt to find it.  It's in a perfect spot!  

Many, many thanks to FBC for their love and encouragement and hard work!
