Last week we hosted our second kids camp for the summer for the second time at New Vision Church in Fayetteville, GA. The week went very well with all the kids having a blast doing various games and activities George Camp is known for, i.e. Wet Day, Glow Day and Messy Day.
For the week of camp, we had about 20 or so kids joining us, along with several of the students from the New Vision Student Ministry. The week moved along quite rapidly with kids being excited about games. But greater than that was seeing the kids excited about the Lord, memorizing Bible verses and engaged in the large group sessions. Moreover was their participation in worship and learning the sign songs, as you see here:
George shared some of his personal story during the week, challenging the students with relevant and meaningful thoughts about dealing with racism, divorce and hardships in life. Throughout the week, he focused on how fragile life is and used an egg as a daily illustration to make the points for the kids stick. By the end of the week, the whole camp was challenged to take their brokenness to the Lord and allow him to heal them.
Camp ended and kids were longing for more, which is always a good sign. In fact, one kid wanted us to do two weeks next year! We had a great response from everyone and God certainly moved on the hearts and lives of us all. We give thanks and praise to the Lord for all that was accomplished last week. We also thank New Vision Church, the student ministry at New Vision and all those with V2H who helped make last week a success!
