HandyCamp Team

MissionFOTO was asked to come and attend a week of camping with LDM, a ministry from Anderson, Indiana, to document their work with the learning disabled. We had not been there very long the first day, when we learned how difficult it was to put the camera down. During the week we shot 16 hours of tape and over 1,000 slides. Thirty-two Campers ranging in age from 18 to 82 had come for a week in the woods living in cabins and sharing their lives with fifty Companions who had volunteered to help make the week possible for these folks who otherwise would never have such a chance. The love, joy and serventhood that we witnessed during that week filled Val and I up beyond description. Never before had we ever witnessed college and high school students willing to come and devote themselves so that these folks might have their camp week, something that they planned for all year long.
