Gioconda’s Testimony

The discipleship meetings have been very fruitful, and going through the material has been a blessing. Being able to go over some basic things, even though I have studied some of them before, has made me meditate on my spiritual walk.

The summer of 2011 I had the privilege of ministering to young people as a counselor, and that summer one of my campers was Tristan. Tristan trusted Christ at …

Olivia’s Story

Olivia came to camp unsaved and talked to her counselor about salvation all week. Her major hurdle was that she couldn’t believe that a loving God would actually allow people to go to hell. Her counselors dialogued with her all week and the talks were calm and thoughtful ones, but Olivia wouldn’t make a decision. On Saturday morning, 15 minutes …

Life is But a Vapor
