Florida, First Year

One of my campers during the first week of camp had a drastic life change. He came to camp as an angry individual who questioned God. Even after a couple of days of being with him, he still seemed deeply rooted in his bitterness; my co-counselor and I were discouraged at some points. But God worked through it all, and the walls that the camper had put up came tumbling down. The camper completely opened up about his struggles back home and in his personal life. He asked me the hard questions that were plaguing his mind. He told me the frightening experiences he had been through. God used me as an instrument to encourage this young man and set him on the right course. By the end of the week, he was thirsty for the Word, hungry for spiritual growth, and desirous of being a future student at the Word of Life Bible Institute. Moreover, he became exceedingly more confident in his relationship with God. He and I became friends, and his entire disposition changed from choleric to tenderhearted. It was a wonderful experience getting to know him and seeing the ways God worked wonders in his life. He was even featured on the ‘My Life Was Changed’ video for Week 1 of camp. His life, as far as I could tell, truly was changed for the better, all thanks to the Lord.
