Since I left the staff of the John Birch Society last July, I have been unemployed and looking for a job. I have filled out numerous applications on-line, in person, took tests, conducted job interviews, attended workshops, etc. Usually, I receive nice E-mails thanking me for applying and interviewing but I am not what they were looking for. I can’t blame them. I will be 58 years old in a few weeks, and most companies don’t want to invest in the time and training for someone who may not be with them very long. And, in this very left-wing environment, (Boston, MA), a man with my background is as welcome as a can of Raid at a cockroach convention. Meanwhile, we at Camp Constitution have been in the process of raising funds to make a full-time camp director position available for me. A few weeks ago , I was finally offered a full-time job that was somewhat decent. I verbally accepted the job, and told a few friends and family that I was going to start this job Monday February 13.
One person I told was my good friend, mentor, and “a brother from another mother, Rev. Steven Louis Craft. He strongly urged me not to take the job, but to do Camp Constitution full time. He said that God tested me when I was given an ultimatum by the CEO of the John Birch Society, and that he is testing me now. Well, after discussing things with my wife and children, I decided to take his advice, and pursue Camp Constitution full time I have a peace about the decision. Interesting enough, I received two other full-time job offers including a job that I applied for in July.
Camp Constitution has received the support of many people who are donating on an annual or monthly basis to make my full time position possible. We still have a way to go, but I am trusting God. Over the last six months, many doors have been open to us. Here is a link to an article about the camp’s progress and goals: http://campconstitution.net/camp-constitutions-2016-review…/
I am looking forward to this exciting opportunity to advance the camp’s mission spelled out in its motto: “Honor the Past…Teaching the Present and…Preparing the Future…” Thank you to all those who have helped make this position possible. I will honor your confidence and generosity, and pray that God will continue to richly bless our efforts.
