Project Eden Updates

As of May 24 the water system shed has been completed and the water purifying equipment has been installed. We are just waiting to get the water turned on and the Health Dept. inspection. This will be completed by the camp opening.

The upgrade of the electrical system in Mapleridge has been mostly completed. We are just waiting for Hydro One to come and install the new transformer and pole so we can complete this project.

A huge thank you to all the wonderful people who contributed to Project Eden for these upgrades, and to the people who have done so much of the work! We could not do it without the support of our Burbalac family and the grace of God! Thank you all!

Donations to cover the capital costs are still being gratefully accepted. Please see below for donation information.


Dear Friend of Burbalac:

Project Eden began in 2009 as an ongoing fundraising project to provide much needed infrastructure
improvements to the camp. The most urgent upgrade required was to bring our electrical system up to
current standards.

In 2010 Phase I of the electrical upgrade was completed at a cost of approximately $10,000.00.

In 2011, Phase II was partially completed at a cost of approximately $7,000.00.  In 2012 Phase II was completed at a cost of approximately $30,000.00.

Phase III has been estimated at $40,000.00!!!! What a huge amount …. but we know with your prayers and your monetary donations we will be able to start this last phase and start it in the fall of 2014!

To assist in this project we have started ‘BUY A METRE OF CABLE” ….. FOR $50.00 YOU CAN PURCHASE ONE METRE OF CABLE – WE NEED 70 METRES TO COMPLETE THE JOB!!!!!

At this time we ask YOU to prayerfully consider how you could help with this

If you would like to participate, there are a number of options you can choose:

  1. A one time gift
  2. Post-dated cheques for a pre-determined amount
  3. Credit card withdrawals for a pre-determined amount (and collect those air miles!)

All donations are tax receiptable.

If you are unable to give at this time, we ask that you keep the camp in your prayers and ask that God will
provide the funds required to continue with this project. Thank you for your support!

In His Service
