Day 9: Camp day 4

IMG_9896.JPG

The fourth day of the camp is about finding rest in Jesus. In the midst of busyness and checking off our to-do lists, all of us can easily dismiss our need for rest. Even in our time of rest, we sometimes try to find it in things than in our LORD Jesus Christ. It is encouraging to watch a lot of these youths take to their time of rest and solitude with the Word each day. We pray that they will continue to find rest in God as they weave through the complexity of adulthood.

Many of these camp leaders were part of our camps as children throughout the past 12 years. We are tremendously thankful to be a small part of their lives, and we pray they will continue to walk with the LORD and reflect the relentless love of Christ to their community.
