The rain symbolizes a new start, and washing away of the old. On my bus ride up for a week of camp at Forest Home, we experienced more rain than we could imagine.
The rainstorm caused massive flooding and a landslide throughout the camp. Buildings were damaged and tents destroyed. When we say that God can move mountains, there is no joke in that.
Fortunately, the effort to restore the grounds and reopen camp has been in full swing since.
