BETTER LATE THAN NEVER
Stephanie and I were thrilled when we saw all of our campers make decisions for Christ at our youth camp in Costa Rica in January 2016. One of them was a small time drug dealer. I am encouraged that my efforts on social media are finally bearing results in this young man’s life. Of course, there are some Costa Ricans reaching out to him as well. He struggled at first as you can imagine. Recently, he starting making progress after despairing for his life. No, he is not perfect yet, but, he has come a long way. Pray for Nene [pronounced Nay-Nay]. By the way, plans are being made for the next youth camp there in January 21-25, 2018.
That’s how many of our campers at LIFE Romania came to Christ this summer—48%. Yes, out of 679 campers 329 came to Jesus! Praise the Lord with us!
We had two camp locations this summer splitting our youth camp staff into two teams. So, four weeks of camp in each location. We almost doubled the number of campers from 2016. And, we have two more weeks planned in southwest Romania starting on August 14. Pray for a great harvest there as well.
CAMP MONTY 2017
Still waiting for the final results to come in, but the word is that this camp was the best ever. I love it when people say this. It brings a smile to my face as I think about others leading the ministries that I started earlier that those who are serving with them say it’s the best ever. YAY!
About this time 39 years ago I was accepted and approved as a missionary. Wow! What an experience this has been. Grateful to God for the opportunity to serve Him! So, it means that I’m starting my 40th year of service and ministry. I’m pumped about this. The last 16 months have been difficult with issues with my ankle, but this is on the mend. Stephanie and I are happy to serve the Lord and thankful for your help, encouragement and support. Let’s keep moving forward!’
