Testimonies of God's work
God blessed us with a wonderful camp season that lasted three weeks and 415 people participated whether as campers or camp staff. We had almost 70 Nicarguan youth on the camp staff who sacrificed their vacation time and even had to pay their way in order to serve. The camp counselors worked hard spending every minute of the day with their campers and any free time they used to counsel campers one on one using the Bible. 97 of the campers decided to put their faith in Christ and many of these new believers are attending weekly Bible Clubs to continue growing. God has been so good and we thank Him for His provision, His strength, His protection, guidance, and the work He did in the lives of so many people. May this work continue to reach many other Nicaraguans with the grace of Christ.
I have already posted some pictures of camp, but I would like to post some testimones of youth that wrote about what God did in their hearts during their time at camp. Here are just a few of the many that we received!
My name is Juan and I was invited by the church Encuentro con Cristo. The most important decision that I made this week was to accept Christ as my only Savior realizing that He poured out His blood on the cross for my salvation. What I liked most about camp was hearing the word of God, reading the Bible, and learning new things. Now that camp is ending I desire to put in practice what I learned and make the most of my life by preaching the gospel of Christ to others.
My name is Miguel. The most important decision that I made during camp was to repent of all of my sins and accept Christ as my Savior. What I enjoyed most about camp were the games and how they shared the word of God. Now that camp has come to an end I desire to change my life, follow Christ, and learn from His word.
My name is Eliezer and I was invited by the church Encuentro con Cristo. The most important decision that I made this week was to put my faith in Christ and change things that don’t please Him. Also I decided to start going to church and learn more about Christ. What I liked most about camp was accepting Christ in my heart, and making new friends. I’m thankful for my counselor Alvaro because he showed me who Christ is, and also I’m thankful for my brother who invited me. Now that camp is over I desire to give time to God and walk out the decisions that I made.
My name is Anita and I was invited by the church Ebenezer. The decision that I made this week was to accept that I was living a merely religious life and now I want to serve God as He calls me to. A life of holiness is my goal. I want to share with others about God and no longer be self-centered. What I liked most about camp was having a counselor there who was always willing to listen. It’s a camp that marks a difference because every moment they are speaking the word of God. Now that camp is over I want to share with my friends about Christ and ask my mom for forgiveness for things I have done.
