Let Us Comfort Grieving Children
Campers get together in a "healing circle" at Comfort Zone Camp.

Campers get together in a "healing circle" at Comfort Zone Camp.

God, among his many other descriptions, is described in the Bible as the “God of all comfort, who comforts us…so that we may be able to comfort [others] with the comfort that we ourselves have received from God” (2 Corinthians 1:3-4).

When a child loses a parent or a sibling to an untimely death, God’s plan is to extend comfort to that child through other people who have already been comforted by him.  Comfort extended through comfort received…That’s a great way to describe Comfort Zone Camp.

While Comfort Zone Camp (CZC) is not affiliated with any particular religion, many Christians, like Redemption Hill’s own Elizabeth Sullivan, work closely with CZC to comfort children as young as 7 years old who are dealing with the loss of a parent or sibling.

Through things like its weekend camps, CZC is helping to form relationships between grieving children and caring adults.  When it is all said and done, who knows what God will achieve through these relationships? Perhaps many of these children will not only learn to cope with the loss of their relatives.  Perhaps, one day, they will also come to meet the “God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ…the God of all comfort.” 

If you would like more information about Comfort Zone Camp, simply click on the above link to visit their website, or email me at raymond@redemptionhill.org and I will let Elizabeth know about your interest.
