Dear Friend,

During this meaningful time of year, we often think of others and look for ways to honor the important role they play in our lives. This year, we invite you to honor your loved ones and dear friends with a gift that is certain to benefit others in a significant way. By giving a Christmas tribute gift you will be making it possible for a child, a family, single adult, or couple in need of scholarship assistance to attend one of our five programs in the Frio River Canyon.

As you know, the greatest gift anyone will ever receive is knowing our Savior and experiencing his peace. Your gift will bless those you love and give others an opportunity to encounter God in the stunning Texas Hill Country.

Just a few of the many scenarios for which people need scholarship assistance:

Help Families Facing Medical Setbacks

Families can experience unusual financial setbacks due to serious health concerns. These setbacks often create additional stress in the home, which is all the more reason a few days or weeks in the Frio Canyon make a significant difference in maintaining important relationships with loved ones and with God.

“LLYC is a beautiful place to seek the Lord, know him, and grow in Him more and more. I believe sometimes it can be the simplest things that bring us closer to God. Whether that’s a starry night sky in the Canyon, swimming in the gorgeous Frio River, or having cabin time, it’s the simple things that bring us closer to His presence.”

Help Strengthen Family Relationships

For many of our scholarship recipient families, finances have become difficult. Camp provides a unique environment where families are free from the distractions and stressors of daily life. They are invited into a place where they can rest and experience renewal.

“Being able to experience Family Camp all together was an unbelievable gift. Focused time, with no distractions, in a beautiful place. Time moves slower there than anywhere else in the world. I came away feeling refreshed and renewed.”

Help Those Facing Changes at Work

Over the years, a number of families have needed scholarship support for camp or a retreat due to a job loss or change that lowers household income. Time away in a setting like Laity Lodge provides time for reflection and healing.

“The time spent at Laity Lodge was very special. I felt encouraged, refreshed, and renewed. As a couple working as full-time missionaries we have not been able to retreat in a very long time and we felt that the time at Laity Lodge helped us deepen our relationship with God and each other. We created memories that will last forever!”
