Help welcome J-Man to Camp New Hope

Greetings from Camp New Hope! Fall is almost here and the kids are having a great time in the cooler weather riding on the Kubota's. Now I would like you to meet J-Man! J-Man is 9 years old and was born with hydrocephalus and seizure disorder, he does not talk and he does not walk but he loves to smile. Please pray for J- Man (Jonathan) that he will have a great week here at the camp with his family. Also, J-Man is one of the children who would benefit from the new roll-in shower and other additions. Please help us raise enough money so we may begin these projects.

If you would like to know more about these projects please do not hesitate to call me or email me and I would be happy to discuss them with you.

Thank you for all you do for the camp and these children.

Meet Samuel!!

Meet Samuel age 5 and has been diagnosed with a mitochondrial disorder
called Leigh's disorder. He does not talk, walk and is fed with a
feeding tube. He does however communicate with the help of a special
computer which is controlled by eye movement. Samuel is here this week
with his 2 older sister, Gracie and Annaleigh as well as his baby
brother Micah age 2. Samuel is so excited because he is going on a
helicopter ride this afternoon (not as excited as Dad though).

Samuel would greatly benefit from the plans we have for the additions at
the camp. Please continue to spread the word about our project as well
as the need for donations. Without these donations the project will not
be able to go forward.

Thank you for your prayers and support.

Meet Ashton!!

Greetings from a chilly Camp New Hope! We woke up this morning to a beautiful but chilly 45 degrees!!!!!

Meet Ashton age 6, Ashton has been diagnosed with Miller-Dieker syndrome which is a disease characterized by a developmental defect of the brain, caused by incomplete neuronal migration. Children with this disease have multiple abnormalities of the brain, heart, kidney and gastrointestinal tract. Failure to thrive, feeding difficulities, seizures and decreased spontaneous activity are often seen, and death tends to occur in infancy and childhood. Ashton is here this week with his 2 sisters along with mom and dad and 5 other family members. He loves riding in the Kobuta and goes to sleep while riding on the trails. We are excited about having him here and know he is going to continue to have a great time while he is here with us.

Thank you for all you do for the camp, please keep this family in your prayers. Ashton is one of the children that would benefit greatly from our plans for the new addition as well as the completion of the other projects.
