With the whirlwind that was the last day and a half of camp I wasn’t able to to post about what happened due to know time available. However I am happy to tell you that God truly blessed and worked through the lives of our students. On Saturday the students had their big event of the weekend. The one thing that they all love, but are scared to death of at the same time. They went out into Campbellsville, KY on Saturday afternoon on their annual faith trip. On this trip the students take all the training they have received at camp and go out door to door in the surrounding community and share their faith with complete strangers. I personally love when they come back to campus and I get the opportunity to spend time hearing about all their experiences and how exciting it was for them to share their faith. We now ask that you pray that this boldness and excitement will carry on now that they are home and that they will be bold in their home, school, and community here in Lee County.
On Saturday evening the students were put to work in chapel. Our speaker, Mark Cahill, did a talk where the first 20 minutes he gave a talk about various aspects of Christianity and sprinkled in several false teachings. Then for the next hour he asked the students to tell him what of what he said was wrong and find scriptures to prove it. It was great to see our students listen so intently and pull out their Bible searching for answers. It was a challenge that they don’t typically get but rose to the occasion to seek truth in God’s Word!
Sunday was a great wrap up of all the various aspects of camp that our students love. The once again got to spend time praising God through song and prayer. Both of the speakers at camp issued final challenges to the students to be bold in their faith at home and school. Maeven and Judah even got in on the final chapel services as their kids camp sang in front of over 500 FCA students and leaders!
One of my favorite parts of camp is when the students are getting ready to leave, as we watch them say good by to good friends that they met at camp. These are friendships based in a mutual love of Christ and have potential to be life long and life changing relationships.
FCA Leadership Camp 2015 was definitely a huge success. If you helped support us through prayer, finances, or both we thank you so very much. Keep praying that our students will be bold for Christ with all they have learned at camp and will keep striving to grow in their relationship with Him!
