After a busy summer, there is no time to rest
I am in awe of the impact Miracle Camp has had on the kingdom. When we look back at what God has done, we can see glimpses of His goodness and a constant stream of lives impacted. A stream that we know creates a ripple effect on the kingdom; people who have crossed the line of faith, accepted their call into ministry, or had their faith strengthened and then impact others for Christ.
So far this year we had the opportunity to serve and share Jesus with:
- Over 1,600 students in 9 weeks at Summer camp
- 759 men in 4 weeks at Man Camp
- 2,639 Junior High and High School students at 9 weeks of Ice Camp
- 395 women in 2 weeks at Women’s Retreat
- 4,236 lives through guest group visits
All lives that matter to Jesus and all opportunities to impact our world for Christ.
One such example, comes from one of our summer campers. Looking at him you would not be fully aware of the hurt in his life. Parents going through divorce, he daily feels the pressure of hurt and believed he was alone. Throughout his week at summer camp, he realized he was not alone and heard about the love of Jesus. “He loved anything and everything at camp, he loved all of his cabin mates so much, and he started to love God.” – His camp counselor.
During our one week with this camper, we could not change his home life, but we were able to share Jesus and show him the firm foundation that can be found in Him.
That is the power of camp. One would think that with Summer Camp over, we get to rest. That is not the case and our service continues every weekend throughout the rest of the year.
How does this affect our vision:
Our hope and prayer is that our programs are not for our benefit. We desire to aide the local church in its ministry and disciple its people. Furthermore, we want to create space and events that facilitate the local church’s mission to bond its people together around Jesus, in order to form relationships that produce discipleship. As Iron sharpens Iron, they can live life together and spur each other on in love.
Thank you for your prayers and support!
