Information: We’ve held rooms under the name, Haitian Family Camp 2011, so when calling to make your reservations, please ask for a room under that name. For reservations, phone Audrey @ 765.447.0575 ext. 149 & make reservations no later than January 20, 2011. We’re hoping for another great turnout this year as there’s several young people home since last year’s camp & hopefully even more between now & then!
Group Gathering: We’ll be going to Golden Corral again for dinner the evening of Saturday, February 5th, for all who wish to join. You’ll only be responsible for your family’s bill. I’ll be phoning in the EXACT head count on Saturday, February 5th by noon, so you must let me know prior to that time or you’ll not get to set with the group. They’ll be holding their back room for us, so we must all arrive by 4:45pm & I guaranteed them that we’d leave as soon as we were finished, so we weren’t holding up tables during their busiest time, which they said was at 6pm. If you know for sure that you’ll be attending this gathering, let me know ASAP, but if you’ll not know until you get to Haitian Camp, then please let me know prior to that Saturday @ noon. Prices are as follows:
Adult $10.29 [does not include drink]

Real mothers don't eat quiche
they don't have time to make it.
Real mothers know their kitchen utensils
are probably in the sandbox.
Real mothers often have sticky floors
filthy ovens & happy kids.
Real mothers know that dried play dough
doesn't come out of carpets.
Real mothers don't even want to know
what the vacuum just sucked up
Real mothers sometimes ask "Why me?"
& get their answer when a little voice says, "Because I love you best."
Real mothers know that a child's growth isn't measured by height, years or grades
it's marked by the progression from 'mommy' to 'mom' to 'mother'
My mommy can do anything!
8 years old
My mom knows a lot...a whole lot!
12 years old
My mom doesn’t know everything!
14 years old
My mom?...she wouldn’t have a clue
16 years old
Mom? She's sooooooo five minutes ago.
18 years old
That old woman? She's waaaaay out of date!
25 years old
Well, she might know a little bit about it!
35 years old
Before we decide, let's get mom's opinion.
45 years old
Wonder what mom would've thought about it?
65 years old
Wish I could talk it over with mom.

We've great news! God's been SO good to us! Reach out to Haiti's received a wonderful offer of assistance. “India Fest” is an event that raises money for various charities. This year they've chosen Reach Out to Haiti! It'll take place this weekend in Melbourne, Florida. In conjunction with the event & the disaster, a medical doctor's so generously offered to match any funds raised at the event for Reach out to Haiti, up to $100, 000!
You can be a part of this. Any contribution we receive before Saturday will be presented on Saturday & matched. If you could send anything [even $5], to Reach out to Haiti c/o Air Mobile Ministries we'd be most grateful. The contribution needs to be sent through Pay Pal on the www.airmobile.org website, with notation it's for Barbara Walker’s Reach Out to Haiti. Please contact me with any questions! We'll be glad to assist in any way we can to maximize our funds!
