J.O.Y. Ministries holding free summer camps for kids

From Maggie Coleman and Krystal Cundiff

As we head into summer we have the opportunity to run summer camps for elementary, middle/high school students.

These students will be learning about healthy lifestyle habits, life skills, academic content, team building and that they are deeply loved by the Creator of the universe!

We are so thankful to have loving, caring educators that are willing to give us a portion of their summer to help us care for these students. We are so excited about having more opportunities to serve young people as this is what started our ministry and ultimately where our hearts will probably forever be!

Rob Collins in the Morning, Q 104.1 FM

During the past few weeks, Dad and I have talked bout some of our favorite memories. From moving to the [Adair County] farm in 1974 and transitioning from that experience in 1992.

During those years, I can honestly say that everything I value in life, came about from those years. My love of outdoors, great writers and music flourished in that environment. I have such warm memories of taking long walks with him through the woods. He would often quiz me on the genus species of trees and flowers, tell me about the importance of protecting and respecting wildlife.
