Reading: 2 Timothy 4: 18
When I was 13-years-old, I was camping at a place called Buffalo Gap with some people my age and some adults. We were eating our lunch when one of the adults came running. Another member of our group had fallen down a hill and had hurt her knee. At the time, it was believed that she was unconscious.
We all sprang into action. Being a boy scout, I knew some first aid and rescue skills. When we found the one that was hurt, she was being attended to by some other people in our camping group. We knew we had to get her out of the woods.
We made a stretcher out of shirts and two large tree branches. Using the stretcher was hard but it did work. We were glad when a large board stretcher was brought for our use.
It took some time but we got the woman out of the woods where they could transport her to the hospital. It was a scary experience, that's for sure.
Just as we rescued the woman from the woods, so God rescues us from evil and those things that harm us. Turn to God in your times of trouble and be carried to safety by God's loving hand. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
