Saturday, all day long, Camp Hope was full of busy people constructing and finishing the 45 tent pads that are part of the re-zoning projects that must completed by next February. It was an inspiration to see three of our biggest church supporters all out there working together, and they stayed until the job was done, and they did an AWESOME job!
