This year’s camp was truly amazing! It was my first year being a cell group leader, so I didn’t know what to expect. As a matter of fact, I didn’t even know I was ready. I mean, it was nationals, the camp where many churches from around the country come to meet in LA for camp. There were almost 300 people there too. But you know what, I prayed about it and I read the Word, and camp ended up being a blast. Being a leader was amazing and I never thought I could still change, myself, as a leader. My cell group was amazing too! The songs were so deep and powerful, and I could tell by the way the other young people were dancing and jumping up and down that they were into it too. I mean, it’s just amazing what God can do in the lives of these young people. I know that He has so much in store for them in the years to come, and I can’t wait to see what will happen. Even in our youth group, we had so many first-timers. And now, they’ve broken out of their shells, I’ve seen them praising God and just loving him. That’s what makes camp amazing: the way God moves in these kids. And even though my partner and I were the youngest leaders in camp, I think we still had an amazing time, just teaching these kids and watching them grow spiritually. And yeah, it’s a little upsetting to realize that it’s all over. But you know what? Even though camp is over, at least we know God never will be.
