Prayer Request:

After making some much needed changes at Stronghold, we are excited for the 2013 season! Pray for the right families to be sent up to benefit from the peace and relaxing atmosphere at the cabin.

Also, pray for volunteers to help us re-seal the exterior logs this season. This is something we'll need to do periodically and we are overdue!



Current Praise:

Since opening in 2007, Stronghold has been used by many, many families of children affected by cancer!




"And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance forever. And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places;"  (Isaiah 32: 17-18)

9/8/08- The cabin has been used by many couples and families this year. They all appreciate having a place to go and get away from everything. Thanks to everyone who helped us get Stronghold up and running. We will be having a Fall Clean Up day before we shut the cabin for the winter. If you are interested in going up to help, contact Dana Kelly or post a message here.

The Grand Opening for Stronghold was held on July 21, 2007 from 11-4. The weather was beautiful. About 75 people attended the festivities which included a cookout, face painting, balloon animals, boat rides down at the lake and a tour of the newly finished cabin and garden area. We want to thank everyone who helped make this dream of ours a reality, and also in organizing and participating in the Grand Opening.


On August 18, 2007 about 30 members of the Mt Blue football team and some parents came over to "Stronghold" to do some work on the property. Since the land used to be a pasture, there was plenty of barbed wire and old fencing which needed to be removed. The team did a fine job and also removed brush and wood that had previously been cut down.
