Testimonies

 

Some testimonies from guest who have stayed at Mount Carmel:

Probably the best week we’ve ever spent [at Mount Carmel]. The painting with Paul [Oman] was a highlight… All of the counselors we met were genuinely interested in doing God’s work and their daily smiles and greetings bore this out…The Kitchen was firing on all cylinders… I’m an Executive Chef and I would be pleased if that kitchen was under my direction… You all really hit it out of the park this year! We are still buzzing from our wonderful vacation. Thank you so much for all of your efforts.

This has been a great week of rest and healing. We have been greatly blessed by your tender care. It is with joy that I can say I am indeed refreshed and ready to walk back into the ministry to which I’ve been called.  The prayer and beautiful surroundings are things we are grateful for.

Dani Jo’s testimony and story with Mount Carmel.


This week’s teaching was just what I needed to hear at this point in my life. I always feel much more centered when I leave – it’s the only time I relax!  No worries about meals, transportation, safety of your kids etc.  And our time on beautiful Lake Carlos kayaking, and just floating in the sun was life-giving.

“With endless gratitude to God for guiding me on a pilgrimage to Mt Carmel from Ohio in 1959 which changed the course of my life to one of service for Him. And for the myriad of ways Mt Carmel continues to bless through ministry and people.”

What a blessing this place and staff are to my family. We come every summer for rest and rejuvenation — both physical and spiritual. It will be a tradition for years to come — someday I can be with my grandchildren there too, I hope!

Natalie’s baptismal story with Mount Carmel.


Mount Carmel is doing a great job bringing families together for a week of faith filled fun! There is truly something for everyone. God is at work bringing families together in a beautiful setting that becomes a tradition for many families. Ours kids have spent almost every summer going to camp at Mount Carmel, and I know they would say it is their favorite place to be, and their best memories growing up were made there. If they had to pick between Disney World and Mount Carmel, they would choose Mount Carmel. God is good!!!

I was blessed to attend camp at Mt. Carmel as a child and now am equally blessed to bring my children here. Mt. Carmel is a very special place with wonderful memories, a talented staff, a beautiful lake and strong Christian roots.

This camp is where I grew up a little more every summer, where I found Jesus, where I continue to go when I need time away and now where my parents spend their summers. This is a great place to come and be refreshed, for the whole family. I am so thankful for Mount Carmel and the way Jesus used it to change my life and continues to use it to help me grow.
