My favorite moment at camp is when I had Calvary Baptist Church as my church. Their leader, Adam, shared his testimony with me. He shared with me how he had run from God by joining the Navy. He reminded me that you never ever need to run from God. His life proved this point. In the end, he showed me that God always knows the plans for us, whether we are following His plans or not.
This summer I had Grace Baptist Church as my group one week. Throughout the week, they kept getting more and more excited. No matter what life threw at them, they had good attitudes about everything. At the end of the week, they had 5 campers that accepted Jesus as their Savior. It was awesome seeing their tears of joy and their shining faces. After campfire on Thursday night, I shared with the how easy it is to forget about their relationship with Jesus and the devil uses this fact for his good, so I encouraged them to continue to remember what Jesus did for them. I pray they will keep unlimited excitement all year long. Hannah Grigg
On the third week of camp, in my first Bible study, I had a girl who did not want to do ANYTHING. Each time we paired up in groups, she didn’t want to work and she would say, “Do I have to do this?’
I said, “Yes, you need to do this.”
Then she had to answer some questions for a group activity and she said, “I don’t know the answers to these questions!”
I answered, “That’s why you’re here! So you can learn your answers are in the Bible.” But still she did not want to work.
Meanwhile in my second Bible study group, I had a young handicapped girl with leg braces and walking sticks. She walked to my class (at the Retreat Center) every day with a smile on her face and joy in her heart. Her smile was gorgeous! Every day she was an inspiration to me, because sometimes I can be lazy and not want to do anything when I am able, and I saw her wanting to do anything and everything and she couldn’t do some things. I am glad she was in my class.
