This week is so inspiring to witness from the outside. Teenagers all coming together not only to worship God, but also care for and serve those who need it much more than them. Every group had the opportunity to leave camp for the day to reach out to organizations like; Widow's Harvest, Bethlehem Center, Chambliss Children's Center, Mustard Tree, Brainard Methodist and the National Park Service. Each of these places offered different ways for the youth to serve and grow, whether that be mowing lawns for widows, packing lunches and buckets to send to those in need, or planting trees.
Back at camp, there were plenty of ways to serve as well! We spread mulch all over camp, fixed and painted railings as well as built a landing platform at the climbing wall. All of these jobs were needed so badly here at camp, and I know that they were needed and appreciated at the job sites as well.
Every night for worship, the youth band from Christ United Methodist would lead us in worship. By listening to their peers sing, play instruments and worship the Lord, I believe the campers were able to feel the presence of Lord. I'd like to say thank you to all of the churches who sent their youth and leaders to camp this week, we had an amazing time and we accomplished so much good. I hope everyone left feeling refreshed in service, and in Christ.
Never stop serving,
Camp's Most Reliable Witness
