God has given you an incredible gift, and we are so blessed and grateful that you have chosen to share that gift with us! When a quilter transforms pieces of fabric into a beautiful work of art and then donates that quilt to the Bible Camp, something so powerful happens. Your gifts make it possible for God to transform the lives of hundreds of campers! Quilts and non-quilt items are due at camp on Monday, July 22nd.
