Field of Service: Serving campers from North Bay to Sault Ste. Marie
Mission Organization: Aush-Bik-Koong Bible Camp
Ministry: Ryan and Kathleen serve at Camp ABK - a summer camp where we strive to present the claims of Christ through the camping experience. Kathleen grew up in North Bay, and Ryan grew up in Sault Ste. Marie. We met at ABK where we both served on Summer Staff for a number of years before getting married and accepting the position of Managing Directors. Our two children, Lucy (7) and Jack (5) are learning to love all things ABK just like their parents. We love serving at a place where kids are able to have a ton of fun just being kids - and where we get to see the Lord work in the lives of children and adults. He is so good to us, and so good to ABK.

Praise & Prayer:
We are excited at the prospect of a normal summer this year - we plan on running one day camp, 7 overnight children/youth camps, and one family camp. We are looking forward to welcoming young people back to ABK! With this in mind, please pray for the following:
- Pray that we are able to run a "normal" summer with minimal restrictions
- Pray that we adjust to a "new normal" well if that is where we find ourselves in the Summer
- Pray that we are able to find solid staff that love Jesus to volunteer this summer
- Pray that God directs us through the Summer Staff application process
- Pray that we see lots of campers this Summer!
- Pray for God's protection as we run our programs
This year we plan on replacing our Nurse's Cabin with a new, barrier-free nurse's station and some much-needed office space. We plan on starting this project this June and finishing it by the fall. The estimated cost for this project is approximately $100,000. That includes a nurse's station, a nurse's quarters, and an office. We have approximately $25,000 set aside for the nurse's cabin so far, which leaves us with a $75,000 goal to raise by the end of the year.
