German teen camp
Wow! It’s been busy these days around Holsby. German, German and more German =) We kicked off August with our two-week German teen camp, which was a big success.
Through it all – canoeing, a day at the water park, Bible teaching, singing around the campfire, the ropes course, loads of fun and much much more, Jesus changed people’s lives. Oftentimes, one of the difficulties of working at a camp is that groups will come for only a day or maybe three days at a time, and sometimes it can be hard to see change in people during their time here. For the shorter camps, we’re responsible in sharing the love and truth of Jesus and then we trust Him that He will grow the seeds that are planted here.
But when it comes to the longer camps such as this last one, we get a special treat as staff. Throughout the two weeks of camp we get to see the very clear work of God in the hearts of the youth, and it is truly awesome! We get to know the kids in a deeper way and get the chance to invest in them personally.
This past week, we saw kids come to know the Lord and make a decision to follow Him with their lives. Many of the youth were not “church-goers” and had never heard the good news of Jesus Christ. Like I said before: this camp was a huge success as we saw Jesus change people’s lives. Praise the Lord with us and please pray for the youth who have committed their lives to Christ for the first time!
