Summer Camp Day 5 Photos

Some of the camp highlights for me each year are the times when we all get together as a Youth Group to share what God’s been doing in our hearts throughout the week.  We got to do that this morning. I’m overjoyed to hear the commitments they’re making for Christ, and how He’s stirring them to live for Him more faithfully.  Make sure you ask them about it when they get home!

Today was a “fun in the sun” kind of day, and we’re grateful for the great weather He’s provided.  As you will see – they’re having all kinds of adventures.

In tonight’s chapel service, our teens were challenged to live for Christ. They were given an opportunity to show this commitment by tying a ribbon on the cross.  Each ribbon representing their decision to live for Him. Here’s the commitment that more than half of our group made tonight:

Commitment

Please continue to pray for our students – specifically that the commitments they make tonight will last their lifetimes. I’m praying for you tonight, as you do your part to encourage them and spur them on.

Last night I was reminded again of God’s grace, and why I love working with our teens. The Gospel was presented in the evening chapel and dozens of teens trusted Christ for salvation for the first time – Praise God!  Several of our students made significant commitments to Christ as well, including 2 who wanted to re-dedicate their lives to Him.

Today was another hot, humid, and amazing day.  The youth are having a blast. It’s exciting to see them processing what their learning from the Bible hours.

BTW, you can also follow happenings at camp on Twitter: #wolisland

Please continue to pray for safety and spiritual impact.

As you can see – the group is having tons of fun.  Thanks for your prayers for safety – they’re being answered.  So are your prayers for spiritual impact.  Tonight the Gospel was presented, and the students had a chance to respond to the good news of hope, forgiveness, and salvation in Jesus Christ.  Dozens of youth made commitments for Christ for the first time tonight!

That’s what it’s all about!

?. “We’re going camping now, we’re on our way. We’re gonna climb up a mountain, and run and jump and play. And as we hike along we’re gonna sing, praises to the King.” ?

We made it safe and sound.
