My son just got back from Christian Youth Camp. He spent the past week in Georgia with our church’s youth group, opening his heart and soul to Jesus Christ. After two days, HE WAS SAVED!!! He made the altar call and was saved. The next evening, he was asked if he’d give his life for Jesus and even thought he didn’t want to go to the altar, he said, “I just couldn’t control my body, Mom. It made me go up to the altar and pledge my life to Him.” I was so touched. I told him we can’t do anything when the Spirit calls us, moves us and engulfs us in His power. My son told me that he was so touched by the Spirit that he could not help but cry with the joy and emotion that he was filled with. WOW!!!!
The Pastor at youth camp really spoke to our youth and was on their level and as one young man stated, “Really spoke to me and knew what I had done, what I was thinking of doing and what I was sure I would do in the future.” Tonight, our youth spoke with our congregation for an hour. Each teen relayed their journey this past week and what they experienced with such emotion. We were all touched by their joy and their pledges. What a moving experience.
My son told me that the drama the camp presented was about Moses (his favorite biblical person) and he figured out the conclusion before the others in his group. Each segment, performed each night, resulted in a treasure hunt the next morning. Oh and he said his favorite part of camp was when he got to serve breakfast two mornings. He’s so cute.
I am so happy that he had such a wonderful experience. He is a great kid. He works hard as the AV assistant at church and loves to help and is very giving. I’m a very proud Momma.
HE IS MIGHTY TO SAVE — JESUS IS MIGHTY TO SAVE!!!!!
