This past weekend 3

This past weekend 48 non-churchgoers kids enlisted to our “military” camp sponsor by World Vision. Nine leaders, mostly from the young people’s group from the Camiri church, took the command in regard to logistics and coordination. I spoke of self-discipline, courage, loyalty, obedience and diligence based on 2 Timothy 2:3 “Endure hardship as a good soldier of Christ Jesus”. These new recruits worked their way up through the ranks as they showed outstanding character and single acts of merit or heroism. It was something to see what a plain award made of foamy can do to incentivate, stimulate and inspire these kids to work harder, behave and take part in all the games and activities!  The seed of the Word of God was planted;  I hope that one day might bring forth fruit.

  1. ¡que divertido el retiro! a mis hijos les hubiera encantado estar. Oraremos por esos niños para que la semilla dé fruto en Su Tiempo. Dios te cuide mi hermano y continue usando.

    te quiero mucho, siempre tu hermana y amiga.
