All The Best

A week of adventure with the best group of students on earth at the best place on earth describes our Wilds Camp week. Yes, we had a great time with our students! The water slides, the giant swing, the land trolley, the ziplines, human foosball, tic-tack-toe challenge, canoeing, blobbing, hiking and only the Wilds comedy kept the students going strong. 

What a blessing to hear God's Word taught and students accept Christ or receive assurance of their salvation! The Lord truly manifested His power through the preaching of The Word. Messages on the goodness of God, our heart's motivations, serving like Christ, the grace that brings salvation, taming the tongue and then to finish with a lasting impact of "Don't Waste this Life," the students were given truth for growth and change and then encouraged to continue in the things they had learned. 

Students are still talking about the messages God used in their lives. Sophomore Katie Gaines said, "I was both convicted and helped in the last message on 'Don't Waste This Life' because life is like a vapor, and we are not promised tomorrow."

At one of the most precious times of the week, testimony time, our students reflected on what the Lord had done in their lives. Testimonies of salvation, God's hand in circumstances and His goodness blessed the group.

Eighth grader Coy Bertrand said, "On Thursday evening, the testimonies given were very powerful and impacting. During the week, I also really appreciated the messages, especially Willie's message on how we talk."

No doubt, God did a work in us that only He could do. We continue to pray the Lord will "RENEW" our minds, hearts, strength as we carry on this school year, RENEW 2019.
