My name is Aleniz and I am from La Paz. I arrived to camp full of hatred and my life in shambles. I did not believe that a God of love existed because all I felt was bitterness and remorse towards Him for the things that had happened to me. My parents abandoned me when I was a child and was raised by strangers, whom I hated and despised. These feelings led me to start taking drugs, and that was my condition when I arrived at camp. In this place I felt loved and people cared for me, they were patient with me and they spoke about Christ and all that He did for me. It wasn’t until campfire night that I was finally able to understand that I was separated from God because of my sin and that night I asked Christ to forgive me of my sins. I feel like I am a new person, the old has passed away and I am a new Aleniz. I have someone who will always care for me and that will never leave me. Thank you for an unforgettable week.
