Morning Watch 4/5/20

by on

“Words are so powerful they should only be used to bless, heal, prosper.”

Today’s Morning Watch is brought to you by Mary Vassar Hitchings. Mary Vassar is a former camper (’70s) and counselor (’83, ’87), her two daughters were campers, and most recently she was the head counselor in the Enchanted Forest (2004-2015). She talks to us about Sundays at DeSoto, words of encouragement, and Proverbs 18:4.

Today is Palm Sunday! I hope that however you worship today, you remember the celebration that took place in Jerusalem when Jesus arrived on a donkey and the people shouted,

“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”

Mary Vassar sent us some photos from her years at Camp! Aren’t these fun to see? We recognize a lot of familiar faces!
