End Well

Posted by Dan Bolin on OA9er @ 9:11
 
“Do all the good you can, in all the ways you can, to all the souls you can, in every place you can, at all the times you can, with all the zeal you can, as long as ever you can.”

A SLICE OF FRESH BREAD
 
I recently announced my retirement. I plan to hand off the reigns of CCI-Worldwide at the end of July 2018. Over the next year, there is much to do.

The search committee is working diligently to find and vet excellent candidates. The Board hopes to select the new International Director before the end of the year. A smooth and seamless hand-off could take several months. 

All the while, I am trying to finish as many projects as possible in my final year. But mainly, I want to end well.

Near the end of King Saul’s life, he said, “Surely I have acted like a fool and have erred greatly.” (I Samuel 26:21b) Paul however, had a different view looking back over his ministry. He said, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” (2 Timothy 4:7)

The decision we make along the way (most of them little ones) determine if we end like Saul or Paul. Whether at the start or end of one’s career and life, we should avoid acting like a fool. Instead, fight the good fight, finish the race, and keep the faith.

PRAYER REQUESTS
 

Please pray for the CC-New Zealand national conference taking place on July 31 - August 3 at Totara Springs Conference Center. Pray for the preparations happening now for this event and that all the details will be remembered and taken care of. Pray for the speakers, that the Lord will teach them what to say and give them joy as they teach. And for all who attend - for safe travel, good fellowship and connection, encouragement, inspiration and refreshment

 

Please pray for the Board of Directors of CCI-Worldwide as they search for the next International Director of CCI. Pray for wisdom, discernment, unity and direction as they work to fill this position with God's choice for the next years of ministry. Pray for sensitivity and obedience in the heart of the one the Lord is calling to step into CCI leadership. And pray for current CCI International Director Dan Bolin as he seeks to finish strong and end this season of ministry well.

 

CCI-Ukraine is doing a Staff Training Workshop starting this week in an eastern country. The STW will run for several days. A group of CCI-Ukraine instructors and leaders is traveling there to give leadership and to teach. Please pray for safety and protection for everybody involved, both staff and students. Thank God for making this STW possible and ask Him to open the windows of Heaven upon these needy people.

 

Christian Camping Community Malaysia ask that you join them in praying for events in October or November to share the benefits of Christian camps and using of Christian venues. Please pray that God will guide them every step of the way.   

Please pray for discussions about a consultation and sharing meeting in Budapest, Hungary. Conversations are at an early stage about bringing camping leaders together in September to meet and perhaps develop a network. 

 
CC-South Africa asks for continued prayer for the Western Cape Province as some areas have had rain, but much more is needed. Also pray for families that lost their homes in a furious fire in the Knysna area. Lastly, please pray for the CCSA newly elected Executive team.


Please pray for the upcoming 
CCI-East Africa Camp Fair to be held June 24. This event is a platform for camp owners/ those with property that can be used as a campsite to meet decision makers from churches & other organizations and introduce them to their campsite. It is also for those who run camps programs or those in support services e.g transport, catering, equipment, tents etc. to market and sell their services to ready customers. Pray for all the different categories of people and the fun-loving campers out there, that there will be a wonderful turnout, that many will learn how to use camping as a ministry tool and want to plug into ACC. Pray for the weather on that day that it will not rain and that they will get the right sponsors we are seeking to sponsor this event.
