After spending a week at Believers Youth Camp, it it difficult to get back into the grind of life. It was nice to spend a week without internet, ungodly music, limited phone calls, and other distractions. Instead we experienced wonderful services, great fellowship and clean fun (and a few pranks). We appreciate the five-fold ministry that sacrificed their time to come and minister the gospel. The messages laid upon the hearts of the ministers were timely and fitting. At the end of the day, I believe the mission was accomplished and that was to see young people have a true experience with Christ and grow in the Word of God.
A lot of time and effort goes into planning Believers Youth Camp. There are many people who pray and fast prior to camp, seeking God to have His wonderful way. The burden for young people is not taken lightly. There was about a hundred workers and forty plus leaders that volunteered their time, energy and money. Some of the workers spent twelve hours a day in a hot kitchen. There was other workers that kept the grounds and bathrooms clean and several stayed up all night to keep the grounds secured. Many workers and leaders spent week’s preparing for devotions, crafts and activities. What would motivate a person to volunteer their time, money and energy to work long day’s behind the scenes? The motivation is the burden that burns in their heart to create a godly atmosphere for the young people. One pastor shared with me that his church comes together several times before camp to pray for it. To God be the glory!
On Friday, there was a bad storm that came upon us quickly. The wind was blowing hard and branches were falling. God was so gracious, that there was only a minor or injury or two. We truly appreciate God watching over us and keeping us safe during the storm.
