And In Thy Name We Go
Each winter, Twin Lakes takes a team of our summer staff to Peru to continue the ministry of summer camp. Though it may be overcast, rainy, & cold in Mississippi, 15 Twin Lakes staff will travel to the dry, summer heat of Trujillo Peru to share the Gospel of Jesus through the fun of camping ministry. Leaving on December 27th, our team will serve alongside our friends from IPC Savannah, Georgia and numerous Peruvian volunteers. Twin Lakes Peru will span the week of December 29th through the new year.
Please be in prayer for the team as they travel to South America. Pray for safety in travels as well as the operational logistics of running camp. Please also pray that the Gospel would be effective in the hearts of the children as well as the ministry being a blessing for the local churches and communities.
As a familiar hymn for Christian missionaries throughout the years, We Rest on Thee depicts the reliance of believers on the power of God. We rest on Thee, and in Thy name we go ...
We go not forth alone against the foe;
Strong in Thy strength, safe in Thy keeping tender,
We rest on Thee, and in Thy Name we go.
In Thy dear Name, all other names above;
Jesus our Righteousness, our sure Foundation,
Our Prince of glory and our King of love.
And needing more each day Thy grace to know:
Yet from our hearts a song of triumph pealing,
“We rest on Thee, and in Thy Name we go.”
Thine is the battle, Thine shall be the praise;
When passing through the gates of pearly splendor,
Victors, we rest with Thee, through endless days.
-Edith Cherry, 1895
