The Chundrlek Newsletter
Dear Friends and Family,
Hello! We hope that you are all well and growing closer to the Lord through current circumstances instead of farther from Him. We are continuing to try and trust God rather than give into fear and worry about the future. As you can imagine, this spring and summer was unlike any other we have had in the past. It was very quiet around the Ranch as we had to cancel or reschedule several key events and retreats. For the first time ever we offered Day Camps and for the first time ever we did not offer any overnight camps. We had no idea if anyone would be willing to drive the distance to bring their kids to camp. There were four weeks of Day Camps and one three day Buckaroo Camp. We were very surprised and blessed to host 395 kids over the course of those four and a half weeks!
It has been a whole team effort to be able to navigate ever changing rules and regulations from state and local officials in order to stay open. Unfortunately, it is not only the summer season that has needed a complete overhaul. Each of our Family Camps, fall retreats, student graduation, and orientation have all undergone dramatic changes. There is a great benefit in looking at what you are doing with fresh eyes, but re-inventing the wheel once a week is getting old. Please pray for wisdom and humility for all the staff as we try to faithfully fulfill our commission before God and man.
On a personal note, Frank is entering into first grade this fall and Grace will be moving up into Kindergarten already. There was also another major milestone in the Chundrlek household this summer. For the first time ever, Frank attended camp as a Buckaroo! Life seems to be rushing past us at breakneck speeds and we are trying to enjoy the rollercoaster ride called life. Oh, and did I forget to mention that Harmony is pregnant? That’s right, the Chundrlek’s are moving up to four children, just one more for a full basketball team! Also, her due date is April 1st…we’re not so sure how we feel about that. Well, I could go on and on but I suppose I better get back to work!
