Friday was another fun and exciting day here at the 2013 FCA Leadership Camp. The students were up bright and early for warm ups with calisthenics, a good jog, and devotional time. After a good breakfast we had a morning chapel time where we sang praise songs, which Maeven and Judah really enjoyed. Our morning speaker talked with the students about the importance of keeping their motor up and being relentless in their pursuit of Christ.
After the morning chapel service the students were divided up into their huddles. Some went to play games for awhile while others had small group Bible study time with their huddles. During this same time all of us coaches, teachers and sponsors had a huddle of our own where we talked about what we had been learning from the speakers and also what God is doing in our lives and our huddles. It was a blessing the spend some time fellowshipping with so many others who are serving Christ in our school’s with FCA.
During the afternoon Friday, our students had more games and also had a lot of free time. The majority of us all enjoyed the camp pool for awhile. Maeven especially like all the pool noodles that she could play with!
After supper tonight we were treated with a special guest who did a chalk art ministry. He talked with the students about the importance of being MAD leaders (Make A Difference). He challenged them to be leaders who use their talents and gifts to make a difference for Christ. He then did an amazing presentation where he drew a beautiful scenic view with chalk on a black bed sheet. It was truly amazing to watch someone so gifted using their talents for Christ.
The evening closed with an evening chapel service where the music and speaker encouraged the students to keep being “Relentless.” A girls volleyball player from Marshall University also shared her testimony with the students.
I’d like to ask you to be praying hard for our students today. This afternoon they will be doing door to door evangelism in the community around the university. Pray that they will have calm nerves, boldness, and wisdom as they share the love of Christ with complete strangers. Thank you so much for your prayers!
