We had a great year at teen camp! It was so great to have 5 campers and 3 staff from the Midwest, I can’t imagine this group dynamic without them! The campers grew close together and they drew closer to God as well. The testimony campfire on Saturday night was marked by an amazing vulnerability that can only be explained by God’s spirit moving among us. The campers trusted and respected one another as they shared about what God was doing, and I was really blessed by all of them.
Today begins something that we are trying for the first time. The campers had daily Bible studies in their tribes through the first 5 chapters of 2 Corinthians. The campers and staff came home from camp with a devotional guide that will take them through the rest of 2 Corinthians and we’ll be providing 2 opportunities a day to sign onto Skype and continue the discussion (11am and 7pm). I’m exciting to see how God uses this opportunity to continue speaking to us through his word. Please keep praying for the campers and for the staff. The days during camp are often some of the most exciting and encouraging during the year and the days following camp are often a low. Please pray for God’s protection and encouragement of them.
One last thing, there are less than 2 weeks left before adventure camp. If your camper (or for campers that are reading this) is still interested in joining us: it isn’t too late! Register Early Register Often! (campgilgal.com)
