Palabra de Vida El Salvador Camp promotion video
We will be leaving bright and early tomorrow morning to begin the final week of preparations for 5 weeks of camp. We will have two sessions of children’s camp lasting 3 days each and then 3 sessions of youth camps lasting 6 days each. Here are some photos from last week getting some of the game stuff ready:
The purpose of the camp, besides being a lot of fun as you can see in the video above, is to introduce the children and young people to Jesus Christ. Also for those who are already following Jesus to reinforce and strengthen their relationship with Him. In between all the games, activities, and swimming there are many lessons and a play presentation to engage the young people in their growth in Christ. The kids are divided into groups and are assigned to a counselor for their time in the camp to learn from and to share with the counselor any struggles they are having in their walk with the Lord.
Please pray that all of the children who come that don’t yet know the Lord as their personal Savior will choose to follow Him. Also please pray for each one of us for health, strength, inspiration and wisdom from God’s Holy Spirit and that His love would flow freely through us to those we will be serving. This is the most exciting time of the year for us and the greatest opportunity to get to know the greatest number of kids in a more personal way. This will be my first time helping during the camp season and I am really looking forward to it.
The Little Children and Jesus
5 People were also bringing babies to Jesus to have him touch them. When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them. 16 But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 17 I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
