POST BY JANA BIESECKER
What a beautiful sight! Our students out on the beach early this morning doing their quiet time. Leaders led their campers in small group after breakfast and then all headed for morning worship. Bryan Bailey, our new college pastor, will be bringing the message during morning worship this week. He started off today taking a look at the apostle Paul’s conversion. God doesn’t change our past but gives us a new passion. The Gospel is the power of God for salvation.
It is not good advice, but good news! When Paul met Jesus on the road to Damascus it changed his heart and passion, not his past. When he met Jesus there was a radical obedience….Pastor Bryan challenged the students to examine what their life says about the gospel. What does their life look like now after they have met Jesus. Paul’s past was driven by religion, but his future was driven by grace. The gospel demands a response from us!
After the challenging message, it was time for team recreation competition and todays was Dodge Ball. As you can see from the picture, the blue team came ready….Mike McCoy, the recreation leader, gave each team leader the instructions and the games were on. At camp, team competition is highly competitive and today was no different. However, points change constantly, so who knows what team will emerge as the leader! Campers are at their track time now. Next update will come after late night. Continue to pray!! Satan does not want to see lives changed and hearts caught on fire for the Kingdom of God! Thanks!
