Greetings from Campbellsville, KY where we are attending the 2013 Fellowship of Christian Athletes Leadership Camp at Campbellsville University. After a lot of fundraising and much prayer from many of you we arrived safely at camp on Thursday around noon. The students were really excited to get registered and find out where they would be staying and what huddle teams that they would be competing with and doing small groups with this week.
During Thursday afternoon the students competed in various competitions outside on the sports fields here at Campbellsville. The favorite game as usual was “Tubemania” where the students basically play a version of Tug-o-war with inner tubes. They also kept busy playing versions of flag football and ultimate frisbee.
The highlight of camp so far has definitely been our Chapel time. The worship band has been excellent and really connected with the students through they way they have led them into a time of praising God. A football player from the University of Louisville came and shared his testimony about how he learned to trust God instead of thinking he was #1. Our main chapel speaker was excellent as he spoke with our student about how in our faith in Christ we need to be Relentless. He talked about how we need to be relentless in courage, relentless in not shrinking back from sharing Christ, and relentless in being bold for Christ in all we do. As he spoke from Hebrews 10, you could really feel God working in the lives of the students. During the closing music several students went forward and you could tell that God was working on their hearts.
Please keep praying as we continue with camp today and for the rest of the weekend that our students will be open to God’s leading. Pray that as leaders we will gain wisdom and a deeper passion to work with our students. God is faithful and He is working!
